It might just be me, but the hull looks quite low, I am worried about this ship's strength, especially with that big cargo ramp cutting into it amidships :P The hull should not be that straight in her shading if you want to get her to those speeds.

thanks to all.

last drawing the Juno class support ship has been updated:

- enlarged the flight deck by a couple of meters
- increased the hull depth with around a meter.
- increased the hull high above water by some
- added a "sort off" beam around the center of the ship right under the ramp, to give better protection toward the dock when she is docked, but also as an part of the hull strength.
- gave the bulb a minor face-lift... literally... I lifted it up a couple pix.
- added and adjusted minor details.

Much better, looking great now...... just the minor remark, that an beam near the waterline does very little for the strenght against bending :P putting that beam at deck level or above the cargo door however, helps a lot!

Very nice work, your on a roll with these replenishment ships.

One note, beware those old Sea Kings as they still have the erroneous door behind the cockpit which was on the portside only.

I quite like the Sword. My only criticism is the odd curving foremast, which (though it might bring to mind the namesake) would be heavier and more costly to construct for no real good reason.
