Currently working on another set of renders, in my own particular style, based on what is essentially a D&D adventure hook:
The F-106- 26 December 1956 to 8 August 1988
Gone But Not Forgotten

It's certainly plausible. Set in the 1870's, just after the Franco-Prussian War ?

Brain just moved another cog and a thought occurred. If the French pirate had been a powder monkey (or whatever the French equivalent was) then set in the 1870's and he wouldn't need to be that elderly ? Could have him as a young member of the nobility who's fled the 1830 French revolution ? Family was on the wrong side ?

On a side note, I'm thinking of modifying the Class of 1940, as mentioned here on the blurb for the Boudicca.  As stated, four light cruisers and three fast BBs.  However, I'm thinking 8 ships- 4 light and 4 heavy cruisers- ordered from various shipyards before the runup to World War II, for two ships, the Fall of France.

Already, I've got the Brookylyn-class CL Plentyn Taranau and Town-class Boudicca.  To round out the light cruisers, a La Galissonniere and a Nürnburg.  For the heavy cruisers, I'm thinking Wichita-class and County-class.  I'm thinking either German, Italian, or French for the other two.  No need for anything heavier as, according to my headcanon, Londthyrian government purchased the four Mackensen-class battlecruisers in the early 20's, for a negotiated price of 16 million RM in gold, were completed and are in service when the Class of 1940 is entering service.

Seeing Ericr's Sunderland/RB-50 mashup in red got me to thinking...and I wonder how a Sunderland would look in either USAF TAC or SAC SEA camouflage.

Which reminds me...I *really* need to learn how to work with (and, obviously get) Adobe PS.

I was only thinking of a Sunderland in BPF colours/markings yesterday Scoot. Thoughts triggered by that very same model  :thumbsup:

Whilst I know I should be slogging along on either the Great Elven Sith War, Three Little Maids, Elven Blend, or plotting what to do for the Blue Lights GB, there are times when I pull up my render program and whatever transient nodes of inspiration I had suddenly go POOF.  Of course, I also blame the fact that SWMBO has introduced me to Rockstar Games' MMO (massively multiplayer online game) Red Dead Online, set in the waning days of the American Old West.  And being the oddball that I am, I've a mustang named Thunderbolt.  Of course, I've also got another mustang named Rossini.
