I am still somewhat annoyed by the presence of those LCVP drawings though :(
Haha sorry Ace, I was looking for the the blank background for the LCVP opening. Needed a bit of manipulation to get the davits in the right place. I've changed the colours on the LCVP, I hope that's okay!

Thanks for your comments! I was trying to show the change in angle with the hull shading but frustratingly it only shows up in a few photos! https://www.dropbox.com/s/d5d5pb6ei1gje36/hms-ocean-royal-navy-ship-on-the-river-thames-at-greenwich-in-london-EPNWW9.jpg?dl=1 Anyway, with the hull shaded reg...

UK plc doesn't seem to get a great deal of value for money for many warships it procures, and I can't help feel that the T23 kit simply bolted on to T26 while losing key capabilities (torpedoes, anti-ship missiles) for such a large price is highly problematic for a Navy that used to pride itself on ...

The current UK flagship, OCEAN has just been sent to the Caribbean to help with the post-hurricane recovery work. I believe it's her last trip before she's decommissioned and is sold to Brazil. Luckily the amphibious capability she provides will be ably covered by ... er ... well, PRINCE OF WALES wi...

There's a good T26 analysis here about the sheer amount of money being poured into a ship that will apparently just inherit most of its systems from the retiring T23 fleet and one here on the putative T31 and the National Shipbuilding Strategy. In that vein, here's the latest offering for the Type 3...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/cd91z7zhdcmgdj4/Type_26%20Template%20V4_LH.png?dl=1 The two Pacific 24 mk.4 ribs are stored behind the roller doors on the sides, as far as I'm aware. The LH side of the T26 has two doors, one located as far aft as the hangar is so I believe the hangar must fit along the c...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/4j6o4mo804cssdm/Type_26%20Template%20V4.png?dl=1 Cheers for the feedback :D My reasoning with the shading is that my source material displays the flare of the bow as being fairly sharp, hence a lot of shadow around below the front superstructure (see here ). I'll see how I...

Evening all, Minor update of T26 regarding the newly released BAe images following the order for the first batch: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kmiwd253ykki3j1/Type_26%20Template%20V3%2010%20Jul%2017.png?dl=1 They've basically just modified the forward superstructure to include a wider deck space around...

It's such a fantastic reference, I hope I can do justice to it. As a first start, I've done HMS Norfolk as pictured, as she was in 1999. If the basics are okay I'll modify the design for Westminster accordingly. Here's a first draft: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wa1k1u3ujyx67l6/Kent%20Template%20V1.png...
