Hi Community of Shipbucket I am brand new to shipbucket, (maybe been lurking for awhile), I am generally new at the forum world as well. I am also in the NS community, but i have only recently discovered it through friend. Before That my Role playing and Alternate Universe and design started when i was back in school in grade 7 (don't worry i am not even over 30) when i made a friend interested in military and that sort of stuff, and that is where it began. My first design i did was of a tank based of the Stug 4
(my inspiration was the Game of Company of Heroes, which had just got) which was done on paper. Since then i have create a country of my own to compete with my friend, but since the end of school my RP and so fourth has been on the decline, till i have found NS which has brought it up a bit. But i have lost my edge and lots of my knowledge due to lack of use, which is why i am here, am hoping you guys could help refine and better my designs, and i hope i can give back too.
My favorite subjects/topics would be.
and South African arm industry.
This what i would reckon i am best at.
My WW2 ships are a bit lacking, sorry guys just not my thing hopefully i can get better at it.
My favorite class of ship i would have to say is A Sa'ar 4 Corvette, because South Africa has a few of them and they look real aggressive, and its a compact system which is still effective at its job.
I like effective and efficiency when it comes to this things.
In terms of Naval design, I like to design modern Corvettes and Frigates, I just like the challenge of getting a capable package under 2000 tons.
I am also a South African fan, As i am South African.
Here is my first some what Complete design on the PC
It is a totally fictional design of my own. It is a Lorraine Class Mini Corvette. She has a displacement of 600 tons and is just 60 meters long.
As you can see i need to work on styling and drawing the sensors.
You can also see my clearly insane train of thought when i put a vertical launch system on a 600 ton Corvette.
I am a sailor and do dingy sailing in real world and influence my designs a lot, and kind of explains the nuttyness a bit.
Thank you for readying and I hope can add to your Community. If i do anything wrong please inform me, i am to forums still don't know how things work really, and I am form a 3rd world country somewhat internet communities are still kind of witchcarft down here.
