German Battleship Ludendorff by Dawley German Battleship Ludendorff by Dawley
Hello again, fellow deviants! Wow, almost a month since my last submission. Time really does fly/soar/crash and knock you into a concussion so that you forget about time, doesn't it? =P

Anyway. This is something that's been cooking in my head for a while. I have a hobby where I draw made-up ships, and yesterday I decided to draw up one of them, the DKM Ludendorff, in MS Paint.

Now, with about three hours of work time under its belt, I present the digitised version. :)

Statistics on the ship:

German Battleship Ludendorff

Length: 672 feet
Breadth: 77 feet
-31,000 tonnes (unloaded)
-37,000 tonnes (loaded)
Speed: 22 knots cruising, 28 knots full speed

Launched: June 10, 1939
Commissioned: August 02, 1943
Fate: The Ludendorff was sunk at dock while being repaired for torpedo damage in January 1945, before being raised in June of that year and repaired. After having replacement boilers installed and all below-waterline damage repaired, she was sunk during Operation Crossroads in 1946.

Any crits and comments are welcome. And sorry about the size of the picture, guys. I'll make a bigger one next time.

Until next time,

Oh, thank you! :D

Heh. I drew it on paper months ago (while Superman was playing in the background) and I spent ages trying to make it look similar in design to other ships of the period.
