Here is a (very nearly finished) HMS Tiger. There are still more details I need to get right from old photos etc.

I plan to do 2 more drawings of her in a later configuration, then maybe a 'what if' drawing in which she was retained in the fleet and modernised to WWII standards.

Enjoy!

Thanks for drawing her! She's my favourite Battlecruiser too :D Must be the three funnels...

I'm not certain about your date, though. Tiger was launched December 1913. But by then she wasn't much more than a hulk :twisted:. She spent well into September 1914 in the fitting out basin and ran trials in October.
