OK, so this my first attempt at a large scale warship; which took two days, a lot of arguing and pissing off of Admins on the ShipBucket Discord Server, swearing, stress, crying and assistance.


So here it is, a large Crown Colony Class Cruiser Style Light Cruiser for a Private Alternate Universe Scenario.

I noticed I didn't do the flag, but I am not in the mood for flags right now.


Feedback is encouraged for this. I went through a lot of stress to get it done.

I don't see any major errors in the design itself, the only errors that I can see relate to the way it was drawn, such as non-uniform colors and shading inconsistencies.

The design itself looks good (the Crown Colonies were nice looking ships) but there are a number of errors style wise.
Here are a few of them;
Random light grey line on the forward hull just under the deck
Bow section is slightly different shade
Plimsol line markings are missing on the boot topping
Lighter grey around the torpedo tubes from where they have been pasted in
Belt is different shade of grey from rest of hull
Aft hull is different shade from the rest
Complete lack of any underwater hull shading
The rear superstructure from X turret to the 4in guns is of hull shade and doesn't match rest of superstructure
Crane is of different shade of grey
Ditch that old crappy pom-pom drawing and get a new one off the RN parts sheet
There are probably newer MG mounts too
The searchlight tub ahead of the forefunnel merges into the funnel

So plenty yet to work on but mainly its colour fixes. Whenever cutting and pasting you need to be very careful with the shades.

Thanks Hood. Glad to see someone else agrees that the Crown Colonies were good looking ships. Had Gambia been in good condition, the Imperial War Museum would have hauled her off to London whilst Belfast would have been left to the mercy of the breakers yard.


Could you do me a favour and mark some of the offending areas for me to fix so I know what I'm doing. I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks for the feedback mate.

You are making progress despite all the "blood, sweat, and tears" your drawings seem to produce. ;)

But why name your ship after a hole in a wall?

Is the flag some kind of mistake since it is a white flag with a random red line.
