By propeller arrangement I mean, the fully visible propeller is forward, but the part of the propeller that's visible under the hull looks like it's placed back a bit. Is that the central propeller?

If I'm not mistaken it's the same arrangement used on the South Dakota (where the inboard props are inside a tunnel created by the outboard skegs).

Very interesting. You might be correct.

In Callieverse, there are 747s that are specifically built for Operations in Aururian Airspace. These modifications include a ventral tail fin for added stability, and a navigator's bay in the nose (forward of the nose wheel bay, but aft of the pressure bulkhead. Due to the added weight and subsequent costs, few airlines bought such variants. Here we see the major versions of the 747 (pre -5/600) and a representative livery the version was seen in:

All of these Aircraft can be seen at Mayi-Thakurti in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The ASB! I had almost forgot about that proposal. And those are some nice liveries, especially the Thai one, I always loved their old one.
(just a small detail. The -200P&W actualy has RR engines, and the -300RR sports GEs)

Thanks. The Thai one doesn't do anything for me, but it was simple.

Derp.

I was wondering if you had a response to my PM I sent you a few days back? Unless you plan on doing a -500/600 on your own, in which case I look forward to seeing it.

Uhm, weird, I've not recieved any PM lately, the last one dates a month ago when I was talking with Colo about the KC-10.
Anyway, I had no plans for the -500 and -600 when I redrew the FD 747s, but now that I'm into their FD scale update the idea is starting to tempt me.

SUPER-DERP. It seems I closed that tab without hitting "Send".

Here arethe main references I have on the fuselage changes with the -500 and -600s:

Don't want to triple post n FD AU, so I'll double post here instead:

Being the Aururian version basically means the addition of the navigator's bay to the forward avionics compartment.

HIMS Alinga lead ship of the last two battleships ever built by the Aururian Navy. Designed during the Great Pacific War, with a fundamental misconception of the specifications of the Yamato-type battleship, she was constrained by the need to use old guns and turrets from battleships canceled at Washington in 1922. Without this re-using that cut more than a third from the cost of the ships, they never would have been built. Neither saw action in the war they were built for, Alinga completing in August and Wuriupranili in November of 1945. (The second ship still holds the record for heaviest hull weight conventionally launched in the Empire.) Obsolescent upon completion, they held the state pictured above only until 1953, when the first of several refits updated their secondary gun mounts. Both continue to serve as training ships, rotating in and out of reserve until their so called 'BBGN' replacements are completed. Obsolete since all-weather strike aircraft arrived in the carrier fleet, occasionally being called upon shock and awe purposes, and the Admiralty desperately awaits their formal retirement.
