Welcome aboard, and will look forward to see your drawings (seeing that Shipbucket is all about the drawings)
My own era of interest corresponds with yours (and Krakatoa's as well), but I'm more interested in merchant ships and passenger ships (although I had drawn several warships).
In a nut shell, welcome aboard and draw some ships, post them and you'll get criticism, some good some snippy and sarcastic, but don't be put off. Just improve your drawings
Thank you Kim for the crest
