A better Ger/BB/1905 (yes, that was the designation)
My original concept was that this ship would be designated the Ger/BB/1905, although I have had second thoughts about that. That is why I did the Ger/BB/1906 Springsharp design. I just did some GIMP hacking on the picture, in hopes of making it better.
I spent 11 years on active duty in the navy. Half was as an enlisted man and half as an officer. My Dad had interested me in the navy and ships, when I was young. I found that I was attracted to doing research, regardless of topic, although much of that research has been in the fields of naval and military history. My Dad was also an artist, and got me drawing and painting since I was three. Much of my work consists of portraits of military and naval historical figures, as well as ships and tanks.
