As talked about on discord, but just put here for reference :P
- I use J.Scholtens as credit on my drawings
- There is no 'shipbucket.com' in the lower right corner
- the very pronounced knuckle in the bow is missing on your drawing
- There are some water outlets in the stern not shown on the current drawing (easily found because of 'rust' flowing out of them on pictures.

I ask of you to prove me wrong. Not say I am wrong, but prove it, because then I will have learned something new.

Welcome back!

Maybe the windows on the front of the superstructure need to be shaded a light shade to reflect the angle?

There's no such thing as "nothing left to draw" If you can down 10 pints and draw, you're doing alright by my standards
