yes... WHY?????? - oh... and if you write "HMS" Hood... then you should also put "KMS" in front of Scharnhorst ;)

I felt guilty about having too much RN representation. If peeps are cool with that then fine by me

Re the KMS - is that right? Not saying its not - I just don't know...

All right, I'll toss in my vote then... I have to say the obese, oriental looking beast of the Yamato takes the vote. Beautiful looking ship, stellar.

I wonder, as Robert Ballard thought, if all Japanese BBs are actually lying on the bottom of the sea capsized due to that pagoda? He was stunned when he found Kirishima like that in Iron Bottom Sound.

For my money, most of the Regia Marina had the best looking ships. Even the Conte di Cavours, after the modernization, had great lines.

Them, and YAMATO. The YAMATOS are just uber-cool

If we are voting for ugliest ships, hands-down for me that is the INDEPENDENCE-class CVLs. I realize they were a war-time expedient, but stilll........ugh

LOL, I'll give it a try.

HEY LISTEN UP! Voting here in this thread does NO GOOD! You need to go to the general discussion forum.

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tt.asp?forumid=8

Once there you need to go to the Australian Beauties thread to place you votes.

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3083586&mpage=73

From the sounds of things here, if you guys go there and vote, the Yamato will win. I voted for the Yamato, I want the Yamato to win, so go to the Australian Beauties thread and vote for YAMATO!

Thank You!

Hi MAurelius,

Previous votes have been in a run-off format. Only in the last couple days has there been a 'finals' bracket established. Unless you voted within the last couple of days (all categories, please), your vote is unlikely to be established for the finals.

Please visit the General Discussion forum page for voting. Votes here will not be scored.

MAurelius, may I make so bold as to suggest you get yourself - and your rather pleasant avatar - over to the Aussie Beauties thread, whereupon you will be asked to do your duty. Thank-you sir .
