Here is my late entry as usual,also my first drawing of real ship because mostly i draw personal design

Italian Orsa Class Torpedoboat

The Orsa class were a group of large torpedo boats or destroyer escorts built for the Italian Navy in the late 1930s. They were an enlarged version of the Spica-class torpedo boat, with more endurance and a greater depth charge load but less powerful machinery and a lighter gun armament.The resulting Orsa Class came from Regia Marina studies on Escort Ship capable to escort Italian convoy from Italian colony against light attack.

Orsa,The lead ship of the class,was laid down in 15 February 1936 in CNR Palermo Naval Yard,and commisioned in March 1938

In 1942,Orsa as with other Italian ships were painted in dazzle camouflage and her AA armament were upgraded

[ img ]

In mid 1943,Orsa underwent modernization with replacing her old 100mm OTO 35 mount with new OTO 37 mount that would remain for rest of her life.She also receiving different pattern of camouflage and substantial AA upgrade with 20mm Oerlikon and German 20mm Flakvierling in new mount.

After the Armistice,Orsa were lucky,compare to her sister ship Pegaso and Procione which have been scuttled to prevent her capture,The ships sailed with doomed Roma to surrender into Allied Forces,and she made it,safely and quicky were brought back into service with Royal Navy,although still with Italian crew,she bear standard RN blue camouflage from 1944-1945.

After war she was briefly decommissioned only to be re-commissioned again and rebuilt by post-war Marina Militare in 1955,Decommissioned 1964 and finally scrapped in 1965

Thats all about it folks!,although im originally going to draw post war version too,but have some difficulties didnt make it in-time,and its been a great time to draw Italian Ships which seems to be ignored :D ,so thats all :)

These torpedo boats are aesthetically pleasing. Great work.

I suspected Golly would be giving us a Soviet carrier in some form. ;)

The Type 21 looks great, even better than the previous version we had in the archive.
Tone looks good and the Orsas are outstanding too! I was just wondering last week when the last time anybody drew an Italian warship.

Wow, so many of these turned out really well. It'll be hard to choose any winners.

It also seems we've made a lot of progress towards new parts, I know I did. Hopefully I'll be able to finish out the T21 class soon. And then maybe onto a Falklands war project...

It's striking to me how, though the individual parts are all getting much better, modern Shipbucket drawings feel much less like copy and paste jobs than they did five or ten years ago. They're ships, not roughly-ship-shaped blobs of components and sub-components.
