Looks excellent :)

The German text is basically saying the same stuff that is said in the introduction part in the second link.

The only differing information I've got, is that the ship was sunk and raised twice (like Mike said) and that she was sold to Dakar in 7/71. (according to Gröner)

A submarine mount wouldn't make any sense, though. Those were specialized mounts, able to be retracted into the deck of the sub. As to whistand the high pressure, when being submerged. Also those MG-mounts were also somewhat special and would have been a rare sight on a tugboat. The size difference ...

Hi, very nice work, indeed! Some educated(?) guesses regarding the AA-fit of the 1944 version: I doubt, that a 2cm on a submarine-mount would have been used. Using the 2cm on the single mount c/30 would be more plausible imho. (iirc some tugs even used captured enemy guns?) "Kriegsschiffe 1815-1945"...

Excellent work, heuhen!

I really like your "simple" (as in very detailed ;) ) top-view. The shading in particular is so well done, it almost feels like cheating... (sorry :D )

You seem to be missing some info on the armor-thickness, though. I'd be interested to see some numbers.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure, thats what the RFs are supposed to be. Two of them on the bridge wings would be enough and would follow German practice. Btw: The camo seems to be a mashup of camos worn by Lützow and Nürnberg in 1943 when in Norway. (For Lützow see: http://shipbucket.com/drawings/6901 ) The r...

Your old drawing was already fantastic, but the update makes it even better.
Awesome job!

Only thing I got mixed feelings about, are the new 3pixel portholes, which seem to be the "fashion" lately. But thats personal taste I guess.

Makes me want to do a Graf Spee Spithead-version...

Hats off to you rdfox76, thats an impressive first entry! Regarding to views: I think it helps to see if everything that you've put on the side view fits on the ship. And it is indeed fun to do. But if someone feels that this is "cheating" ( and I don't think GD meant it that way ! ;) ), the judges ...

Wow, some incredible drawings in this thread! _______________________________________________________ Here's my idea of an alternative Scharnhorst-class Battleships: The two ships of this class were laid down in 1935 after the conclusion of the Anglo-German Naval Agreement, which in effect removed t...

Excellent drawing! One of my favourite ships in the game. The bulges seem to represent the hydrophone equipment carried by the Hippers and Scharnhorsts. Here's a nice pitcure of Adm. Hipper showing them: https://i.imgur.com/NyyvkdB.png Also, I think the struts for the main mast are fine, when compar...
