I have updated my ocean liner a little bit.

made her 5 meter longer, changed the bow, moved superstructure 4-5 meter more aft at the front and added 1 more deck. to make it look more a like a vessel designed for passenger transport and not something that are trying to look better then other vessel aka. "Hotel ship"

Errant Express class ocean liner

[ img ]

The Errant Express, along with sistership SS Resplendant Charity, were two ocean liners displacing 61 000 tonnes standard and capable of carrying around 3000 passengers. Errant Express had a cruising speed of 22 knots and a maximum speed of 25 knots. Both were designed to be able to travel across the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean. Launched during WW1, both ships were first utilized by the Antaran Navy to ferry soldiers before being released to their original company.

A somewhat last minute decision to enter this comp - the Orleans Class ocean liner:

[ img ]

SS Orleans (1935)
SS Rossiter (1939)

Displacement: 49,950t
Length: 260.6m
Beam: 30.1m
Draft: 10.2m
Speed: 32kn (max), 28kn (service)
Passengers: 1,750
Crew: 862

A class of two ships designed for speed and comfort, serving the routes from Esperance to Cape Town and Esperance to Southampton. Due to their use in the tropics they were designed to enable air flow and ventilation for cooling as well as making extensive use of new technologies in air conditioning, with their interiors reflecting this approach as well as providing a more relaxed ambience than the more formal aesthetic prevalent on contemporary transatlantic liners. While fitted with a catapult and aircraft facilities for more efficient and wider ranging mail delivery, these was removed from SS Orleans 4 years into its service and SS Rossiter was built without one. Both ships had their maiden voyages prior to the start of World War 2 (though SS Rossiter by only a few months), and saw wartime service as troopships primarily transporting Recherchean, Australian and New Zealand troops to Egypt and England. Upon the return of peace and the repatriation of service men and women, both ships resumed service on their pre-war routes and, increasingly, on cruise voyages. SS Rossiter was sold for scrap in 1972, but SS Orleans managed to survive and is a permanent exhibit and conference centre at the National Maritime Museum in Esperance Harbour.

A sister ship - SS Victoria - was built in Australia for the Australian Line to serve Pacific routes, primarily between Sydney and Los Angeles/Auckland.

VERY nice work, Rowdy!

I hope no one minds if I make an entry. I first posted this about five years ago, but have made a few modifications. If it's not eligible due to being a kitbash, please let me know and I'll delete it.

The flagship of Germania's Knight's Cross Line, the IMS Empress Kōjun, named for the wife of Japan's Emperor Shōwa. The preceding two ships in the class are the IMS Empress Shōken (a copy of Cunard's RMS Queen Mary, named for the wife of Emperor Meiji) and IMS Empress Teimei (a copy of Cunard's RMS Queen Elizabeth, named for the wife of Emperor Taisho).
