Yes, ace, you're right, about the monitor thing, but, like i've said, that's not highly prioritized right at the moment, with our impending family expansion.
The reason I've completely rejected Karle's version, is due to the fact that since he's not gotten those crucial flute features aft correct, but rather appears to have winged it, then how could I trust him to be correct with other stuff. Hence why i did the "development" on my own.
Look, I sincerely believe I've researched this class far more thoroughly that he has (no offense). He posts drawings almost every week, often several on one day. How can you do a thorough research and apply it if you're that fast? And I have spent several decades of my life doing this research, so I believe my knowledge of this class is pretty solid.
just saying, I am only pointing at his shading style and colour choice, I cannot check any of the hull shape without good references, but I have to say that even if it has mistakes aft, midships it looks much better shaped then yours. this is because I can see he followed the general 45 degrees rule for hull shading, and while it might not be perfectly accurate with lesser refernces then yours, I still have no idea what kind of shading rule you have followed, as you seem to have mixed a few. that is all that my comment comparing with karle's work meant
