These are a few of my many creations(or abominations) tell me what you think of them!
My first ship that I made. I have upgraded it with every update and added my camo scheme to it. I tried to make it able to defend itself from almost all sides and it works pretty well.
A small, cheap boarder that I made. It does it's job and my camo looks odd on it.
"Rhett Class Battleship"
My newest ship, I named it after myself because it is the best ship I've made so far and I'm bad at making names. I tried to make it look nice unlike my floating bricks that I usually have and I think I did a good job. I made it able to defend itself from all sides and only armored important areas.
I tried to make a Kirov Airship and it turned out pretty well it also is very effective against buildings that don't have flak guns. I have not played C&C Red Alert 2 but I saw this ship on the internet and thought that it would be a fun ship to try to make.

That's all for now. Tell me if you want to see more of my creations!
Sorry for the small pictures!
If you want to see bigger versions of them go here:
Fixed up the picture links. Looks like postimg does something stupid with URLs, so you have to right-click and get the actual picture URL for embedding purposes.
The Airships version of the Kirov is... adorably derpy.
hmm... I cant see my pictures on here now...
I am deeply confused, because I now can!
I was able to see them before you changed it, were you not able to see them before you changed them?
The only image I can still see is the Kirov I found on google images.
Indeed I was unable to see them. The URLs went to HTML pages rather than raw images. So I went to each page, got the URL of the actual images, and embedded them.
I couldn't see them both times, Zark. XD
Amazing. Uh, I'll upload them to imgur if that's OK and try using that for the embed?
Now I can see them! :D

I can see them now too. The Kirov is adorable.
So, do you guys have any suggestions?
Yes, I suppose I have one.
On your "Rhett Class Battleship", try not to put all the ammunition magazines in one condensed place...it could lead to a catastrophic explosion. To fix this, simply divide them up using a water point or a firedoor.
Also, I like the camouflage on your vessels! What was your inspiration?
Ship camouflage like this Greek ship:
Except I wanted it to look more confusing like the pic above so I did dark gray and light blue.
Some other ships that I made(they still have that problem of ammo and coal close together since I need to condense my ships to save weight):
Gibbous Battleship Another battleship with the idea of covering all sides. I rarely have to use the two cannons in the back of the stern and the armor can stand a fight.
AT-AT My bad attempt at an AT-AT. It's armor helps it withstand most defensive structures to bring in it's assault troops.(hence it's name, All Terrain Armored Transport)
Cool info-graphic about AT-AT's
Heavy Spider Assault Vehicle MK 1(HSAV) It is meant to trample small buildings, capture lightly guarded buildings and blow up anything that it can't crush or capture. The HSAV is the first vehicle to use my experimental ground camouflage. It can be used alone but it is more effective with air support and light tanks backing it up.

Thanks for looking at my ships, suggestions are welcome!
I like the paintjob, but when it comes to shapes they're kinda... Bricky.
I find it hard to make non bricky things in games made out of bricks. I think my Rhett Class Battleship is my best looking ship...
Well, to be honest, although I like the colours I don't really like the shapes of most of your ships. I've seen some ships which I'd say were more interesting in that regard, so it's not just because it's a blocky game - you can still be kinda creative with it.
Most of them look like rectangles with very little to break up the shape.
The two ships I think this description fits the least are Rhett and Kirov.
Rhett, however, has this weird large square section sticking out in the middle which looks out of place somehow. And, erm... The shape resembles a... Erm... Uhhhhh... Well... It looks like a...
Still, my flying bricks of death work! :D I should make a flying brick ship, and have the armor be bricks...
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't."
Speaking of Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is a great book.
I did it! I made The Brick or The Flying Brick. I might make more ships like this, for fun(they probably suck in combat...). Here it is:

We must build flying houses of death!!!

Found this on the internet and I think it fits my designs:
