ABOUT THIS WARSHIP

Similar to Canada and the RCN, Australia and the RAN had it's own warship projects. HMAS Australia as part of the "Empire protection plan". This plan including, to protect trade routes near Australia, and to provide their contribution to defense of the Commonwealth Empire as a whole. The design itself would resemble a significantly modified Hawkins class cruiser, with a similar hull shape and armor layout. Difference include the use of either 3 triple or 4 twin turrets, 2 more boilers in a different layout and a slightly modified superstructure and bridge. While Australia have the accurate data about the Hawkins class but at this time the Counties were still under development and thus information on them was scarce.

REASON FOR MAKING THIS WARSHIP

The reason for why I decided to build this warship was because I liked the shape of it, nothing else really. I used this to experiment with the size of my builds because this is the first, and so far only, warship that I have built that is 3 studs wide so far.

WHAT I COULD HAVE DONE BETTER

The biggest thing that i could have done to make this build better was at least get the colors right, however there are not enough pieces around to use to make this warship with the right colors.
