The plans seem to have been archived by the "Wayback Machine" (brilliant thing the Wayback Machine, always worth checking when a link has gone missing in action). You can try this direct link:

Hi Everyone!

This is a bit off topic for this board but I thought anyone who doesn't know might be interested to hear that HMAS Sydney (II) and HSK Kormoran have been found by David Mearns (of HMS ...

I'm guilty of diving into discussion without commenting on how nice the rendering looks as it is. Good job!

In addition to most optional things (stovepipes, etc) being flattened, it was customary ...

I noticed the awning stanchions are still standing on the ships. They did add details to the rendering to break the flatness. However, in the real world situation, they should be lowered, since they a ...

Just seen this thread.

I love this render you have done ,Mark. :D You say it is early days but already it has an evocative feel about it. I hope this is one of many.

Thanks so much Horsa. I wo ...

I'd think none of the details of those ships could be discerned even at the close range you show them in this render. I bet you could show them from another angle, and swap in a 200 poly Titanic mode ...

Hi Jeff. Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm really enjoying doing this image. It is much more fun doing something based on real events.

Are the ships depicted on the horizon representing the G ...

Forgot, I also used the very cool (and you guessed it, free) DreamyPhoto Photoshop plugin by Auto FX to soften the image:

Hi Max. Great to hear from you.

Thanks for the kind words. It means a lot coming from you as your work is one of my favourites.

The effects were all done post process in various paint packages. ...

Hi Tone. Thanks for the detailed response.

Yes, if there were a RA aboard, but there was not, as Pakenham was in New Zealand ahead.

The ship in the foreground is intended to be HMS New Zealand w ...

I cannot make out any flags on the main mast there, nor distinguish the one(s) on the foremast. I think in this case, however, if you mean to depict Indefatigable, that you don't want the national fl ...

Hi Tone and Max,

I found my copy of Anatomy for Hood :) The boats in that are a help. Also think I can get a copy of Anatomy for Dreadnought here in Adelaide for AU$30 so I'm going to pick that up. ...

Hi Tone!

The real bummer is that I had a copy of anatomy for HMS Hood but I can't find it! I suspect that the boats in that would have been ok as a reference. She had a 50ft(?) steam pinnace. I mov ...

Hi everyone.

I'm working on a 3d model of an Indefatigable class battlecruiser.
