... one gets beaten up but the other two give a very good account of themselves indeed.

I don't know if I should be making my post titles less whimsical, in case it wasn't obvious these will be my renditions of the Royal Navy's King George V class battleships.

Opening post has the first three ships of the class shown at key points in their career. Anson and Howe to follow at a later date, with possibily additional camouflage variations of KGV and DoY as well.

Excellent work VC_! Also you did a fantastic job on the camouflage.

One thing, it would be easier if the title followed the standard naming convention.

Good early search,

By searching into my Archives, I think that you can maybe add :
- King George V:
*12/1941 to 05/1942
*06/1942 to late 1943
*late 1944/1945 final version

- Prince of Wales:
*05/1941

- Duke of York:
*11/1941 to 03/1942
* 03/1945
* 1946

- Anson:
*Late 1942
*Late 1943
*03/1945
*03/1946
*09/1949

- Howe:
*08/1942
*1943
*05/1944

great drawings. To my knowledge the most detailed and accurate depiction of these ships according to the shipbucket standards. Beautiful!

Thanks all!

Colombamike, haha those are a lot of options! I don't think I can cover that many (at least not fully accurately without copy-paste shortcuts) but as I said I will go for a few more in due time.

Excellent work, the best KGVs we've had so far.

The only thing you might want to check for 100% accuracy is the colour scheme of the Walruses. :twisted:

Thanks Hood.

The Walruses are unmodified from the part sheet, but their colours to me look pretty good for Dark Slate Grey and Extra Dark Sea Grey over Sky, which is standard FAA scheme pretty much regardless of aircraft type, theatre or year of the war. Do you think some or all of them should be different colours?

Probably nothing major, the correct roundels are hard to show at this small scale and the only differences would be identification codes but again at this scale would be too small to be a serious issue. The majority of Walruses maintained the standard FAA scheme throughout the war.

VERY nice work!

...but shouldn't the thread title be 'A King, a Prince, a Duke and Two Admirals'? :D

Looking great. And I for one enjoy the whimsical title.
