Back again!

It's been a while since I've submitted anything here but I've just finished another ship/boat/vessel applicable to both iterations of the Falklands AU.

This Tug class is obviously a contemporary one, and i will detail it's predecessors in due course. (I also now have to bring the first class i drew up to this new drawing standard...) It is based on the Robert Allen Pty Ltd RAstar tug design family which is currently used all over the world.

Cheers

As per my previous post, i decided it was time to revamp the very first drawing i did for shipbucket and bring it up to my current standards. As such;

I have two additional Tug variants in the works currently which i will add in due course to complete the Falklands contemporary tug fleet.


Cheers

Great work.

The window shades are non-standard but the more I see these grey/blue shades for ships and aircraft I wonder if there should not be a new standard someday...

Agreed. Great work, but your fonts on the credit lines seem a bit off. It either too big or in bold letters, or maybe the two.
Windows do not conform the now current standards, but IMHO they do enhance the pleasing appearance of this little tug.

I try to stick to the rulebook as much as possible - but there are some i've decided to 'bend' from time to time to achieve what i deen to be a better result. Hope this doesn't offend.

Ok so it's time for a revival here;

This beast is far from finished but I wanted some input before I got too much further...

[ img ]

The Idea of this class of vessels is based on the idea that the German's in this AU could have actually finished the Mackensen class of Battlecruisers before the Armistice, and begun work on the follow-up class (I've chosen to use Tempest's Linienschiff L20e for this purpose), getting them to the stage that the Mackensens were at in the real world by the time of the Kaiser's abdication. In the negotiations of the Washington Naval Treaty, the DCFI negotiates the acquisition of two of the incomplete L20e's as the foundations for conversion to Aircraft Carriers during the 1920's as part of a hedge against Argentinian and Thiarian naval strength in the South Atlantic. Close collaboration with the Royal Navy (who are toying with the Courageous-class conversions at much the same time) results in a very similar design being chosen (albeit with a different hull as the starting point).
HMFS Vigorous and Veritable are converted in the Falklands and enter RFN service in 1928 and 1930 respectively. Both see action in the 1929-31 war against Argentina and are progressively updated during the late-30's, being superseded by more modern vessels as fleet carriers by 1941. Demoted but still useful, they serve ably during WW2 - Vigorous survives the conflict, is decommissioned and then scrapped in 1947, whilst Veritable is torpedoed by a Thiarian Submarine whilst escorting a convoy off Ascension Island in March 1941, still afloat but unable to make it home, her crew are taken off before one of her attendant Destroyers delivers the coup de gras.
The Vigorous class are DCFI's first true fleet Aircraft Carriers, preceded only by the experimental HMFS Magellan (converted from an ocean liner in 1919)
