Going backwards in progression from SMS Baden. First battleship of the Kaiserlichemarine with all-centerline armament.

Still incomplete, but most of the main structural work is done. Still need to shade UW hull, etc. but thought I would show everyone what I have so far.

Very nice shipmate; these older German warships deserve more coverage, and I'd complete forgot that the Baden's wern't the first all centerline warships in that service.

Very nice, but are you sure the belt armour should be outlined in black

I like it!

I just evolved your SMS Goeben to fictional 1942s refitted Yavuz. Would you like to do it the same way with your SMS Koenig or may I?

It's not so much outlined as the belt has a top edge that slants outward a bit. Black being the part closest to the hull.

Want to finish her up before I even think of hypothetical updates. Might do a Dreieinig version at some point. Then again she died at Scapa Flow upholding the honor of the Kaiserliche Marine so...

Indeed they are. Konig class was equipped with them until Jutland.

Pretty much done, unless I find anything I missed. Non-grainy broadside views are tough to find.
