Hello,

Apologies for the technical difficulties - as I said, its been a while since I've been posting anything here.

Does Dropbox still work for loading images? If not, what is the preferred method?

I am working on re-posting, hopefully I can correct this soon...

Cheers,
StealthJester

Greetings! I'm back after an extended period of dealing with life and medical issues - with a brand new AU... Reader's Digest version: After winning Antietam and Gettysburg, the Confederates gain recognition from Europe (primarily the UK and France). These countries oversee a negotiated settlement a...

A valid observation... At this point my universe is not set in stone - I can easily see the Dutch (who retained a number of obsolete vessels after WWI in our timeline) sending these ships off to rot in the East Indies as "Colonial Defense Ships". You are right in pointing out that the VKM's limited ...

You raise some good points, JSB; let me take a shot at addressing them. As to the Great War (our timeline’s WWI): Viewing the Channel Clash in context with the Great War as a whole, I look at it like I would if Japan had won the Battle of Midway; as a temporary strategic advantage which the Central ...

Greetings, Here is the first of what I hope will be a series of ships from my alternate timeline where the United Kingdom of the Netherlands survives into the 20th Century. Enjoy! https://www.dropbox.com/s/dnt49d16bxctyfw/CA%20Zeeland%201908.PNG?dl=1 Zeeland Class Armored Cruisers Displacement: 10,0...

Greetings! Here is my second effort. She is a member of the follow-on class to the Reinier Claeszen class battlecruisers (see my earlier post) designed to address the shortcomings of those ships. She is armed with 10 x 350mm guns, which were built by Krupp of Germany (similar to the Mackensen class ...

I had to create a circumstance where the United Kingdom of the Netherlands survives into the 20th Century, so yes, in my alternate timeline it has a king during this period. He is Christoffel I of the House of Orange-Saxe-Coburg which was created by a political marriage between the two predominate r...

Definitely food for thought… Your thought on using the UK 343mm shell is a good one and in fact the original draft of my AU had the British selling the Orion class to the Dutch (my Washington Naval Treaty does not prohibit sales of ships to other nations). But thanks to overzealous French troops vio...

Thank you all for your welcomes and feedback. I would like, and eventually intend, to post this ship (and others from the same AU) on the Alternate Universe forum with additional information and histories. For now I'd thought I'd address the questions posed. The original Project 743 design dates fro...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/puqqnnh7n5pn7gc/BC%20Reinier%20Claeszen%201915.PNG?dl=0 This is my first posting to Shipbucket. The Reinier Claeszen class is from my AU where the United Kingdom of the Netherlands survives into the 20th Century. Based on a sketch of the Germania Werft Project 743 design wi...
