Getting on with the theme
SS Alcoa Cruiser was a specially design for the Alcoa Steamship Company, for a combination cargo/passenger ship for Caribbean service. Three ships were built, but were taken by the USN as evacuation transports. Here is Alcoa Cruiser as she would appeared if she was in commercial service (after the war)

I hope you like it.

Of The C1 B program 13 ships were taken and completed as Landing Ships Infantry for the Royal Navy, and were known as C1-S AY1 type. After the war four were sold to China, but because of the civil war there the sale was cncelled, though the four ships were allocated names. In 1960 two of the ships were sold to China (Taiwan) to the China Merchants Steamship Company and were given the names Hai Ou and Hai Ya. In 1972 that company was taken over by the Ya Ming company and Hai Ya was renamed Fu Ming.

Here is Hai Ya. I hope it is to your liking

Here another from that program
The C1 M AV1 type motor ships were designed in WW2 with the Pacific campaign in mind, and so were built as small motor vessels with shallow draught. After the war many were sold to allied nations, Britain having bought 8 ships in total. The Methane Pioneer was a converted C1 M AV1 type, with five vertical tanks and a slightly deeper hull.

Why it is that we have to mention these things over and over and over again to the same artist after every now and then?

NO SHADING IN THE HULL
NO GREY UNDERLINING ON STUFF LIKE ANCHORS

The are the very basic stylistic guidelines that makes shipbucket style what it is. Im really dissapointed.

All ships here were updated to conform with Shipbucket rules (I hope anyway)

anchors are still done horribly wrong. BLACK, everthing outlined in Black. How on earth made even think to alter the very basic feature that makes shipbucket what it is?
