Absolutely you can use it.

Yea I just used the first parts I came across for these kitbashes since the original design is already on the mainsite and these were just me messing around to see what it would look like.

Really DG_Alpha its all your fault. These parts were fine a couple of years ago, then you started redoing all the German ships to impossibly high standards, making the rest of our drawing look bad.

Lookie good. :)
I must admit though, I can't quite understand why you'd put so big guns on such a lightly armoured hull... It feels rather suicidal. And costly. :P

Yea its pretty impracticable, although 4/3 the armament of Scharnhorst on 1/2 the displacement seems cheap to me.

I'm thinking about completely redrawing them all a little better now that DG_Alpha, maomatic, et all have raised the standard for German ships so high. I don't know if I'll get these to that level, but at the very least I'll steal their parts.

I've got an SS of the original design somewhere, IIRC it worked out pretty well. OTOH you've got a battlecruiser with no more armor than Deuschland, she's got no staying power and is in real trouble if Hood ever catches her!

I made a SS report (posted viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3529&start=30#p115666). I could not get the speed up to 34 knots without increasing the displacement well over 17,500 tons. Did you manage to find a way around that?

I'm still looking for the SS, I hope I didn't lose it...

You mean the WWI era ship modernized or a never built design?
