Marvellous statement of activity prior to the advent of thrusters and when there was still some elegance in a ship's lines.

Hi Stephen, you certainly put a lot of work in this excellent piece. Who knows, she once may be seen on board together with my 1:200 model.

Lovely as forecast Stephen! Rotterdam is the ethereal belle of this happy ball. All vanishing points thoroughly banished and vanished. (But plenty of hawseholes top right!) I add my congratulations to those above.

Beautiful image. We had the pleasure to stay the night onboard ss Rotterdam last week. Still an amazing ship in beautiful condition inside and out.

Wonderful painting. The Everard's looks like the Gillian class.
