Excellent work, Cunardfun. I would suggest to shade the bulb at the bows, a bit, but itbiz your call.
Other than that, it's superb Shipbucket at its best.

Nice drawing of the QE2, however one point needs attention: the QE2 had a very visible "hump" behind the bridge, because the top deck of the balcony suites actually protruded above the bridge deck:

Beautiful work...here's hoping she is soon rescued from her limbo in Dubai.

Wonderful job, Cunardfan.

Couple of points...

The name on the bow has the letters l and i in lower case making it look a bit odd. And I think you should add the year depicted because there were significant differences pre refit.

Love the grim wheels!

EDIT: also, I'd like to see the large windows below the promenade deck squared off, but that's like, my opinion, man!

Name corrected, I didn't add the year simply because I don't have an exact date beyond 1999 through 2006ish.
As for the windows, I chose not to square them off earlier in the drawing process because they are rounded on the actual ship.

I've been waiting a while for someone to draw the QE2. Simply beautiful, Cunardfan.

nice work, didn't study it closer, but the bow could be soften up a little, at the moment it looks like to straight line meeting each other at an angle.

You're right, made the correction.

I decided to complete probably the easiest pair of ships on my list, since the base ship already exists. I have very little history for the Vardulia, except for I know she was built in 1944 and was by Cunard from Ministry of War Transport in 1947 and was sold to Panama and renamed Valencia in 1954. The Vandalia was built in 1943 for the United States War Shipping Administration, but was transferred to the Ministry of War Transport upon completion. She was purchased by Cunard in 1947 before being sold to Liberia in 1954 and was sent to Spanish ship breaker in 1971.

Very nice work! I hope that after all the Cunarders currently on your list are completed, you'll take on the challenge known as Aquitania...you'd definitely do her justice!
