I'd say that's perfect! I'm really looking forward to this one...having done the full tour of her in Long Beach. My late brother-in-law, an Army Captain (AA Artillery, Normandy, Ardennes, Battle of the Bulge, etc)...came home on her, still as a troopship. Said there were more than 10,000 troops on board!

Im planning on Doing a Grey Ghost Version of her. And a 1937 refit version with the Engineering Quarters added over the Verandah Grill.

She is a Beautiful Ship and i plan to do her Justice.

What you've done with success so far.
Modeling and texturing such a large liner needs an awful lot of time, search and work.
We need more accurate historic liners so this project is a very welcome one and from what I see on these shots, that's a promising WIP and I hope the end result will fully do her justice indeed. I hope she'll be adapted and released for VSF though.

Just one thing I can see without carefully studying that model though: Be sure to make the glass enclosed promenade windows match the davits along the whole lenght.

Congratulations for this fine work so far.

Dom.

I like not only the hull textures but also the new color of the Cunard orange-red on the funnels. Excellent job Micahel. Good luck on completion of the ship

Thank you, The funnels were color matched to a paint chip from the original Mauretania, i just took those RGB Values and Voila!

The only thing i'm wondering is how to make a sailbf.x file glow......

To make a sailbf.x file glow, i think it has something to do with the way it is lit up (i definitely know how to work with this in sketchup but DE, no so much :? )

While the Telegraphs are bronze and polished today ( which was the doing of Long Beach) They where painted all 31 years of her Service with Cunard, The Telegraph Color was the inspiration or Caronia's Green hull. The Telegraphs where painted to reduce glare, only the handles and bells where Left Bronze.
