Did you ever wonder, how many hulls the Battleship has?

Rich Thrash, Brass Team Volunteer

 

In this issue I'm continuing to feature drawings of areas of the ship created by Rolland Garber, a long-time volunteer on the ship.  This one depicts what we would see if we could cut the ship in half. This section is taken through Fireroom 3 showing the structural details of the ship here inside the armored citadel. The people seen in the various compartments are volunteers on the ship that he has added for scale and comedic value. This drawing shows just how well protected the engineering spaces were. In the next issue we'll explore a cutaway view of one of the turrets.
