I take it these were very wet ships looking at the length forward of the A turret?

Very nice progress Jabba. One note though, and that concerns the Underwater torpedo tubes. As seen from the drawing I posted earlier, the torpedo tubes were represented as one full line circle and one dashed line circle, and that means that the dashed line circle represents the torpedo tube on the other side of the ship, but is shown to illustrate its position in the hull. In your otherwise very fine drawing you made two tubes at each location which is wrong. This means HMS Erin had 8 tubes and not 4 tubes.
I hope it makes sense.

Work is very quiet at the moment and I have a wee bit of spare time!

No, not yet. I have made more progress, but getting it perfect is taking some time. It will be done eventually though!

Anyway, here is the final drawing of Erin with added details, ships boats and correct primary armament. Thanks once again to Bezobrazov for helping me out here.
