The H3b was a 45,000 ton displacement unbuilt battleship design featuring 6 x 18 inch guns across only 2 turrets with the unusual arrangement of having both turrets mounted high and forward but only one able to fire forwards. It also included massive 14 inch main belt armor and a phenomenal top speed of 33 knots. For more information on this amazing ship check-out Red Admiral's posting on the Re: G3 Battle Cruiser and N3 Battleship thread:


I haven't really done it justice as I used HMS Vanguard secondary armament and I couldn't find any good source material for 'Pom pom' AA guns but I hope it's of some entertainment anyway.

It works fine in on a PC in Firefox but I just tried it on a mac using Safari and it didn't. Even in Explorer on the Mac I just got an un-scalable part of the image. If it's still a problem I'm happy to email it to you. Let me know.
Cheers, Woody
Hummm...maybe it was too big? I've re-saved at a greater JPEG compression and the file is now only 422 KB also I removed the spaces and brackets from the file name. But in the meantime I found some 2 pounder 'pom-pom' reference so at least that bit is now more authentic. Also now there are 2 versions; one 'aged' and one 'restored'. The aged version looks perhaps more credible but the restored one has prettier colours :). Let me know it you still can't see them.
Cheers, Woody
