Finally, the rebuilt version, after being mined and having her back broken. She emerged with a widened and strengthened hull, which enabled her to continue with further rebuilds postwar, without having to loose her main guns. I've represented her as she would have appeared prior to the Battle of North Cape, at which time she had the Walrus aircraft removed.

I'm still working on the modernised version, which is how the ship appears today.

Great work Bill, an awesome piece of work.

The only question I have is the twin 20mm mounts, they don't look like the ones off the sheet and they don't (IMHO) look quite right.

Astounding work as per usual, but you might have a minor drawing error on the aft armor belt.

Bronies are like the Forsworn. Everyone agrees that they are a problem but nobody wants to expend the energy rooting them out.

"That is a very graphic analogy which aids understanding wonderfully while being, strictly speaking, wrong in every possible way."

Ah, I forgot I'd done the version straight from one of the drawings, but I'll change these to the sheet version.

Yes, I think you're refering to that odd descending line? It does appear on all the drawings, so I included it, but I'm not sure what it signifies.

Looking again I've also missed off some of the 'strakes' on the hull sides, so I'll add these when I update it.

Howcome I spot this only now :(

Nevertheless, she is in great fit, good compination of awsome ship in awsome paint together in a awsome drawing really leashes SB into new heigths.
I also remain eagerly waiting to see the final configuration, perhaps adding some finnish tourist curing their hangover on the deck ;)
