Yes with the exception of sudden changes in  speed which happened with the escorts all of the time. Not great billowing clouds of smoke, (Unless they were laying a screen) but still smoke when the fires were stoked with extra oil to build up the needed head of steam. With steam engines nothing happens immediately.


But in any event it is fun to see in the case of many RC ships.

By the looks of it, this was made as number of years ago. She is much more advanced in her restoration now.

Hello Kiyo

You were asking what the cabin at the front of the bridge was the other day. Here is a picture, (If I can get it to work):

Hi Dreadnought and Jim G;
Thank you for your comments. :-)) 





Hi Lou;
Thank you for the information on a small room of the bridge.
As you had mentioned,it was ASW room.
But I have been thinking that this sort of room might have been set in much lower deck of the hull that would have made it easier to detect the sub sound rather than on high deck.... :((

Deck level makes no difference, as sound transmitted electronicaly, so could be anywhere really, as can be seen in Cruel Sea, it was on same level as bridge
