Matt, remember that this is a painting, not a photo. However, picture #7 is a photo and the features can be seen in more detail.

I'd not heard of this Ship until I logged onto your Site, the outline certainly looks a lot different to any other outline that I associate with a Ship of this size. Do you know if the lines are painted on the side of the ship, or are they part of the original build - its hard to tell from the photograph? I liked the fact that it was in COLOUR, as it adds that extra bit of can I say Mystery to it.
