BEYOND AWESOME!!!

As for the last in the Ballin trio, she conducted her trials as SS Bismarck and was painted in HAPAG colors, so you could include that in the group as well. :D Will HMS Caledonia be forthcoming too?

Really? she was finished? I have read that Bismarck was left at the shipyard undone (without interiers and some parts) and only afrer 1920 she was finised...

ok, that wlii be easy to add original Bismarck painted to HAPAG

what about HMS Caledonia.... if somebody helps me to find some photos :)

I hope the ferry I posted earlier was good enough for you boys!
When I give a general comment (like "great work" or the like) it usually refers to everything posted since my previous comment there, unless stated otherwise, so: Yes, Your ferry was more than just "good enough" :)
(and it has been uploaded long ago ;) )

Yes, she was launched right before World War I began and spent 1914-18 languishing in the fitting-out basin. She was completed in 1922, and was finished as Bismarck, not Majestic, as a final dig at her new British owners. She performed her trials under HAPAG Commodore Hans Ruser, who was also former skipper of both Imperator and Vaterland. The Captain of Majestic, Bertram Hayes, arrived aboard to find the cabins for the German crewmembers were finished perfectly, while his cabin was being used to store out-of-work toilets.

Awesome! One small change, though, to the credits. Bismarck was launched in 1914 and completed in 1922.
