Admiral Are Fjerstad Class Aviso

I started this for the London Treaty Gunboat Challenge but didn't feel like it was good enough to submit, but I've since gone back and gotten it to a post-able point.

Obviously, comments and constructive criticism are appreciated.

Cheers!

Very nice gunboat,
my only thoughts are if you could raise the stern 5" up a deck to clear the stern for ASW/mining or fit 4 guns?

I would then have the 1.1" AA guns moved to beside the funnel?

I would anyway move the .5MGs (especially the rear 4 guns) as they need sky arcs to be useful AA as at this date they are not just anti small boat guns like now but also realistic AA guns (or at least considered such pre WWII)?

I also question your deck 0 and 3" belt, I think simply splinter protection and then something 1"-2" caps over Mags is all you would have?

I've taken your comments into account and made the necessary modifications.

Also, I've completed a drawing of the second vessel of the class ENS Andre Aasen.

She is depicted as scuttled during the Battle of Kulsite, November 19th 1941.


Enjoy!
