Now to the problem of the small service boats placed somewhat higher than normal. I tried to find detailed pictures of how "Bismarck" was in real and found that if the service boats would be places lower, they would lessen the working space on the deck, especially if we try to fill the space left fr...

The lengthening and machinery has something to do with the equipment as in that the new machinery and it's modified funnel block the catapult, so already very early in the construction process that aircraft crane, hangar and catapult would not be placed as such. you said "The big crane was already ...

The catapult was indeed planned at first (in my AU DKM timeline...) but dropped when the new guidelines for the German DKM were implemented which stated that each fleet would have one aircraft carrier in its line-up. This obviously made battleship or heavy cruisers not needing anymore to carry scou...

What do you think? When story of tiny mustache Austrian and his crooks end around 1935, Reichsmarine would not transform in Kriegsmarine so it would use Weimarer ensign or just go back to Kaiserliche white ensign. The name Reich still apply as Germany had been a federation of lands, term Third Reic...

I have a few comments on the drawing. Your aircraft catapult is still visible but now blocked by the aft part of the funnel. At the same time, there is a black line between that aft part of the funnel and the rest of the funnel, suggesting that funnel extension is very thin. I doubt that is correct...

I did expect rather white ensign of Kaiserliche Marine. You hit the nail on one of my basic doubts regarding the era I'm putting my AU in... and this reflects obviously on the flags... First, the regime which was overthrown by the victorious high ranking officers was named "Third Reich". This is wr...

A 9x15-in. gunned Salmon & Gluckstein? Nice! Can't wait to see Bismarck and Tirpitz and their successors! I can't draw new designs from scratch, as said above. But what I can is upload already made designs stored in my files. Taking into account the AU scenario described in the beginning, in 1939 G...

Next airplane to be presented here is totally AU, a twin engined Ju 52, complete designation Ju 52/2m. The original /3m flew for the first time in 1930, revolutionized air transport at least in the thirties, but by end of that decade it was already outdated. Its main drawback was too little engine p...

So let's start with the analyzis of the planes on my part list regarding Germany between, say, 1937 and 1960. Two things to have in mind: This list is not complete, it contains what I see as the most important types developed and built during that timespan and second, this is an AU list, altough mos...
