Old and retired ferry's

MV Jupiter 1974 (shown as she was in 2011)
[ img ]
MV Jupiter was a passenger and vehicle ferry in the fleet of Caledonian MacBrayne in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. She was the oldest of three "streakers" and the third River Clyde steamer to bear the name 'Jupiter'. Her open car deck was accessible by stern and side ramps ro-ro. She entered service in 1974, and operated the Gourock to Dunoon crossing for much of her career. In 2006, she became the oldest vessel in the CalMac fleet and operated for longer than any vessel ever in the fleet. Jupiter was sold for breaking in 2011.

Neat little boats, but I've never been a big fan on putting the funnel marks and logos on the drawings. Unlike the various crests and coats of arms they aren't unique to the vessel. A bit like putting the Royal Navys logo on a drawing of the HMS Dragon

Very nice work, especially the new edition. I would lose the logo.

EDIT: you need to change GB to Great Britain, as that is the currently accepted format. Some shading under the bridge wings? Maybe the template is too big for these ships.

It's getting there. The font should be Arial 10 for the top line and 8 for the artist. You also have some full stops where there shouldn't be.

Spot on job on these drawings, but the fonts... well it had been mentioned already.
I would love to see these with the underwater hull if possible (it isn't mandatory).
The templates are wrong, or too small, as the credits should be to the right of the scale bar, and not below.
