Here is a battleship I'm making. This in NOT the Thunderchild, but I envisioned her to be something about this size. Not doing anything below the waterline as it won't be seen anyway. This is what I have so far. Ignore the colors, just getting the shape right.

    Actually looks good ... esp. the secondary turret size and placement.
    Do have a function over form issue, though. As designed, those guns have very little elevation/declination capability so range is going to be an issue. Maybe make the turrets a bit taller so the guns can pivot in the vertical?

    Looking like a good start. Are the turrets chamfered or is the smoothing turned up too high?

    The turrets of the day didn't really have too much in the way of elevation. Sometimes they would intentionally flood one side to increase it. It was a major fail, adding to the hulls being way too low for seaworthiness.

    And yes Armond, the turrets are chamfered a bit. The more I progress the the more I want to deviate, but as of right now, this is very close to the BB-1, 2 and 3.
