I hope this is the right place. It's my first time and I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm midway through applying to be an officer in the RN - as part of my preparation, and let's be honest, procrastination, I made a personal wall chart using the shipbucket images of current RN ships to help me revise Navy knowledge. It's been a great help. However, there are a few ships missing from the current RN line-up. I thought I'd take a crack at them, not in any serious attempt to reach Shipbucket standards but just something that I could use to fill in the gaps. I hope I haven't stepped on anyone's toes; I've used the previous RN ships for inspiration and for things like flags which I couldn't get to look good. I started with Scimitar, Sabre and Gleaner, which I couldn't find anywhere, because they were small and seemed straightforward, then I got overambitious and had a go at HMS Echo and the new River class.
New River - HMS Forth (Irritating that it's the fifth ship of the class, but never mind)
The Merlin used to be on the deck but it stuck out so far over the end that I had to move it or it would have been cut off. It looks daft on the real thing anyway, so I hope I put it vaguely in the right place.
(Also, when I first started drawing it I used the Omani OPV image that's already on the website because they're based on the same design ... it's still got the same bow waterline to stem curve, everything else I had to change. Should there be credit assigned to MConrads on the diagram somewhere?)
I'd appreciate your feedback and criticism and whatever else! I know there's probably tons wrong with them, but I thought I'd put them up here and you guys could maybe help me improve them. I've achieved my main aim of filling the gaps in on my sheet so any other value they may have is a bonus.
