Meh, they took the easy way out and made it symmetrical port and stbd.  :wacko:

Easy way out? Surely not being symmetrical would be easier... :unsure:

Tamar's is tame compared to the Argus scheme.

Why the lumpy finish?  Is she coated with Radar Absorbent Material?

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Paint probably has some of those qualities embedded.

Do you see the 'Stealth' B-2 design on the stern?  ;D

The Norwegian Navy would like a word about ship camouflage - https://www.seaforces.org/marint/Norwegian-Navy/Corvette/Skjold-class.htm

What awesome looking vessels! Part catamaran and part hovercraft with four turbines, four missile launchers and a 30 mm cannon. What's not to like?

And it does 60 kts on a calm sea!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
