Gangut by JanBoruta Gangut by JanBoruta
Another space battleship, this time I based on the Russian Gangut-class dreadnought of 1914.

Apart from mounting large engines and adding huge amount of armament I moved the middle chimney towards the rear mast to expose the two gun turrets.

Wnjoy!
Tom :D

Possibly. It might be the angle of the ship in the picture, too....

Wow, that's quite a bit different from the other ones you have done.....and for some reason, I really like it...mabye it's because it's more symmetrical or something...

Looks pretty sweet man.

A few things though, personally I'd like some better distinction between the conning towers. I'd think that the fore tower would have some greater size or detail to it as it's probably the command tower of the two.

2. One minor thing, the perspective on the aft secondary far-side turret seems a bit off. It seems too far aft and too large compared to the near-side secondary turret.

3. I think you should remove or partly rework the small middle mast. As the ship is, I dont think the two central turrets would have anywhere near sufficient room to rotate to bear to the other side. Their barrels would run into the small mast. Even at their maximum elevation (which because of the turret construction, does not look more than 30' probably).

One idea might be to put both the fore-central turret and the foreward conning tower + side turrets? on a bit of a raised portion. Just to better emphasize the front. Though at the same time I think it would ruin the flat-deck through feel you've got going on. A possibility anyway.

Hope something's semi-useful. Great job!

1. By 'towers' you mean these two superstructures in the front and the rear between the pairs of main gun turrets? :P They are of the sizes they used to be on the real ocean-going ship. :D

2. "Aft" = "afront"? :o Yes it's too large, thanks for figuring it out :)

3. Originally there was a funnel instead of the mast, but I wanted to show off the turrets. I know about that drawback that makes it impossible for the turrets to rotate, many people mentioned it, but I didn't want this sketch to be elaborate. I just wanted to show a concept, the original battleship was longer, so if I made it entirely realistic then the turretss issue would be gone :)

Thanks for good critique. :)

Well in English there's the fore/bow/front of the ship, the aft/rear of the ship, and port/left and starboard/right side.

So yeah Aft = rear. And yeah I wasnt sure about the towers, I'm not very familiar with ocean-going designs and those I am familiar with tend to be from a later period.

I wasnt sure if anyone had mentioned the turrets or not, half of your comments seem to be in some germanic language that I can't read :)

I'd really like to say it's calssified, but I think I am allowed to write that neither of us is willing to finally translate our scriptwriter's effort from Polish to English :lol: So it's kinda in a dead point. If I manage to fin some time I'll try to translate it :) But then we'll have to decide who is drawing what and fact that we live in places 400kilometres away from each other does not help (especially when it would come to drawing e.g one half of a page by me and the second half by him) :o For now I'll be doing some ordinary drawings with the space-dreadnoughts ;)
