I hope I have not stepped on too many toes by doing this, but its just that I couldn't keep myself NOT drawing some british A to I class destroyer any longer :D
(And this was something I started to feel this morning, and spend my whole afternoon for drawing, thus no deliquate requests in PM to people usually drawing RN ships)
I was really hoping to do either Amazon or Ambuscade themselves, since they differed quite lot from the actuall production ships, and left the big classes to the regular Royal navy artists. Unfortuanetly I wasen't able to get good and detailed linedrawing from neither, so I choose the next most intresting of them, the I class. Thanks to Waldemar Kaczmarczyk's great and accurate drawings from the Orketny Wojenne magazines (parts 44 and 45 are specially dedicated to British fleet destroyer of the mentioned A-I classes, so eveyrone should get them, tons of good pics and drawings) I was able to get work with HMS Intrepid on his orginal quise:

here's also the TTs and the 120mm QF mkIX on seperate sheet, if anyone is intressed:

Excellent work Golly!
I might have some stuff on Amazon or Ambuscade, but probably not detailed enough (scans from Whitleys Destroyers of WW2).

Those parts look good too. I'm hoping to do an update soon so I'll add them then.

Nice looking ship Golly, and well drawn.

My only observation is that your White Ensign looks a bit 'Iffy'.

But otherwise, very well done :!:

I am very happy to see this A-I class ship Golly. The Interwars DD's were on my list for after I finish the E class cruisers. Unlike some, I am very happy to see anyone do some of the myriad of ships and variations that make up the A-I classes.

Will you also do the H's which were almost the same as the I's, the major difference being quads instead of quintuple banks of torpedo tubes? Also will you be doing any of the wartime variations for armament? Is the leader HMS Inglefield, also to be drawn by you?

Those torpedo tubes are going to be excellent for the J,K,N class that also used the quintuple sets.

Thanks for the comments.

as for the following on ships, I don't know. I really have just now been able to restart actuall drawing process since the summer, and there is so much of ships to on the pile waiting my attention, so I cannot promise anything at short notice atleast.

Good job Golly. It is a pleasant surprise, and yes we want you to do more destroyers, please ;)
