Lady and Gentlemen

I know that, with 4-5 exceptions, the beauty contests over on the General Discussion forum have not been your bag. Fair enough. However, I hope I have something on offer that is more to the liking of the navy-knowledgable people here.

Like the thread title says, I am looking for the most beautiful ships of WWII. The first category up for grabs is the most beautiful of the Fast Battleships. There are two groups of three, and I am looking for 1 vote per person in each group please. If you fancy it, please drop by the Australian Beauties thread and cast your vote.

Note: we are talking aesthetics only here - not war record.

I think one should consider the Bismarck-Class to be amongst the top 5 ;)

very nice lines...

Well she's in Group 1 - along with Vittorio Veneto and King George V if you fancy voting for her. Personally I vote for your avatar

Would be good to have a few more voters.

Yes, but she's not a fast battleship. She will be in the battlecruisers competition no doubt.

Bismark should be disqualified - just plain ugly.

de gustibus non est disputandum....

but I do hope you vote for the looks - and not the history ;) - otherwise Bismarck would HAVE to win :P :P :P

PS: Vanguard would have been my 2nd choice...

How about HMS Victory, she was still in commission 39-45. She still is.

I would have loved to be able to include Vanguard - but sadly her completion in 1946 rules her out. Such a shame because she is one gorgeous ship

Yamato class gets my vote. Something that big with clean lines and still looks like a Battleship

No sir! This was the thanks the Grand Old Lady got after she had won the war. The image you were thinking of was as per below:

Warspite1 sends over a deadly salvo and Yamato blows up - Hurrah . Now its off to Trincomalee for tea and medals
