Inspired by the pictures found in the European forum (https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/6872-alt_naval-and-other-never-were-pics/), I decided to play with images in photoshop and see what would come out.

Cruiser Kronshtadt, preserved as a museum ship, passes through the Palace Bridge bound to repairs in... Kronshtadt!

More will follow, as I like to dabble in photoshop so I won't forget what I've learned.

 How can she be in a museum when she was sunk and pretty much broken up on the floor of the Atlantic ocean ?

all these ships were sunk or scrapped
It's a work of imagination that I could have turned into

On the one hand its an awesome photoshop job.

 

On the other it's kinda depressing to think about 'what could have been?' like the USS Cabot.

Or the USS Enterprise, HMS Warspite. There was considerable public pressure to keep both as museum ships when they were sold to scrap. The first was the only surviving carrier from the 30's (and present in almost every battle between carriers), while the other was a veteran from WW1 and WW2.

again, awesome photoshop

 

but....... a towed ship likely wouldn't have smoke coming from her funnels.

I took inspiration in this picture:

battle-of-tsushima-strait-mary-evans-picture-library.thumb.jpg.ae5f7aa42740b4461f63eced33099618.jpg

The Russian battleship in question is the Oryol, which, in spite of sailing under her own steam, eventually had to be towed to Japan to keep up with the rest of the surrendered fleet, as the ship began to list and her engines failed. So, in  this alternate reality, Mikasa, being hit in the armour belt a few times, would have a few boilers disabled. Still able to put out steam, but way too little to keep cruising speed with the rest of the fleet. Hence the smoke out of the funnels.
