Smooth Water by LordDoomhammer Smooth Water by LordDoomhammer
My finished Battleships on very calm waters, waiting to get an order to launch, to make the silence disappear...
As always build in SketchUp, Textures made in PS, rendered in Kerkythea and finally overpaint in PS again. Decided to put this in the 3D folder, as it's my first showing of the finished models. The next ones will be back in the painting section ;)

Hope you like it! :)

What are they based on?

The battleship to the right is based upon the French Richelieu-class, whilst the others are based on the Japanise Tone-class. Both have been altered to appear more similar in terms of design. So no historical accuracy here!

LOL A Tone class heavy cruiser when she was still in her light cruiser design phase (4x3 15,5cm) but with French turrets and equipment? :D

You have a good eye! They were built for a fantasy-universe, with both ships serving the same nation I suppose, so they had to look more familiar - so they used similiar armanents to my Richelieu-class ;)

Is this coincidence or you know previously that the Tone class was laid down as a light cruiser with 4x3 15,5cm guns? :)

Mostly coincidence - I worked from image references mostly (even though I read a lot about the vessels in advance and knew about it's development) and tried to match the size and feel to the references.

If you are interested in Japanese cruisers I have the book Japanese Cruisers by Lacroix, a very good book in pdf format, I can provide it to you to read :)

Oh yes for sure! I'm always on the lookout for reference material or books of such subject matters, though there's hardly any (or way too expensive) ;)

The ship on the left was so well camouflaged that when I first saw it, I mistook it for an island! :D

Thanks! Though I can't take all the credit, as the choice of vessels was decided by a commission for which I actually built these ships ;)

That's only possible as video/animation I guess. Gotta sign up in this group to get allowance:

and I used an mp3 codec on my videos, as they work almost everywhere and Da doesn't have the best video system ;)
