The ship is larger than it needs to be. A battleship was never larger than it needed to be. The fact is even with bulky electronics and missile stowage a missle cruiser was far smaller than this with identical capabilties. Nothing larger than Long Beach is realistically needed. Maybe of you could pr...

Hmmm, the only English-language source about the 'Convertiplano' I can find that backs up that claim of 300 flights is Wikipedia. Most other offical Brazilian sites only claim ground-tests were achieved. The 'Convertiplano' sounds very much like a research hack being part Spitfire and with a US radi...

Looking better. A good looking ship no doubt, one of sleekest RN ships of her era (late war, early postwar).

Super work, can't say much more than that.
Looking forward to Vikrant, Sea Hawks and Alizes...

Great work Bill. Shame about the base differences but getting those pixels right is hell. I guess ten people could draw the same ship and none of them would be identical.

That's one thing that makes Shipbucket special, talent and drawing skills plays a bigger part than some folks think it does.

That is a beauty! A tremendous piece of work. You must have worked hard. I can't find many faults and you've used the correct turrets and 5.25in turrets and everything. You've come a long way since you joined and this just tops the bill as my fave drawing of late (pushing even the Kirov aside). One ...

A great looking little FAC, quite practical and it looks good too both in shipbucket terms and in overall looks. Chaff/flare launchers are basically rifled mortars anyway so I can't see why a 120mm mortar wouldn't work (I'm sure Israel or some nation like that uses a 120mm mortar for just such a rol...

There are a few faults, which are inherent in kitbashing. The after main rangefinder between the Mk37 and the funnel has no room to turn at all and poor field of vision. Ditch it. The forward one is ok-ish but probably needs more room too. The platform on the rear tripod is too close to the funnel.....

A vast improvement on the old Kirov on the bucket in every way (it now looks attractive as well as mighty). I never realised that the underwater section of hull was so bumpy and lumpy. Those fins or whatever they are must create some drag but perhaps they were neccessary to counterbalance the topwei...

A very fine drawing of an unusual battleship (for its time), good details too. Probably your best work to date.
