Lovely, absolutely lovely. Such a beautiful little ship. I wish I had 'one last upload' for today, but it was not meant to be. I just have to enjoy what my mates produce...

Thanks all :)

About to set out the outline for the HMCS/HMcss/HMCWS/HMVS Victoria (I) however, there's a slight issue
Quote:
She is 176ft, in length,....
The Australasian Sketcher, 1 July 1874
this the only mention of her length that everyone seems to quote but it's hard to determine whether it's gun deck length, overall or another form of measurement, hence I'm in a quandary over what to do to avoid a scaling issue.

HMVS Victoria (I)

Launched 1855, delivered in 1856, this was one of Australia's first warships and was in my opinion a bit of eye candy as well, 176ft in length she was a jack of all trades, light house duties, patrols, cable laying and surveying to name just some.

Serving in the first Taranaki War, she ferried troops across the ditch to serve as well as bolster naval efforts there, to avoid legal troubles she was considered as a commissioned auxiliary to the Royal Navy. The next year she searched the Gulf of Carpentaria for Burke and Wills without success but contributed much to the exploration of the region. Afterwards she was involved in the rescue of the Netherby and by 1880 she was decommissioned after a fairly full service. Broken up around 1895

HMS Boomerang and her sister HMS Karrakatta were partially paid for by the Australian Colonies to be on the Australian station for the majority of their services. Mostly spent their their lives in Sydney Harbour, they returned to England for scrapping about 1903-1906.

That's a really nice drawing Rodondo, very nice detailing and lovely hull colours too.
I might have been tempted to draw the forecastle casemate with slightly darker outlines but it looks good the way you've done it as the lighter grey blends in well with the white hull stripe.
