In the port of London, there is an armed paddle steamer.  Think the hull number is N48?  Is that boat historical?

Looks like somebody made a bit of a mistake when they put her in, though - HMS Medway Queen only has one funnel, and the model in port has two:

What makes this odd is that Medway Queen was modeled for Operation Dynamo, and when I looked up a Youtube video of that op, there she has her proper single funnel.

hmm maybe I am wrong, and it isn't Medway Queen, they did operate a number of other paddle steamers as mine sweepers.

Medway Queen as modelled for the Dunkirk operation in WOWS = f2d8f706-6cb3-11e7-b835-d89d6715223c_120

could it be PS Waverley instead?

It's pretty obviously the Medway Queen model, aside from the doubled funnel.  The bridge is the same, there's the decorative gappy-bits on the paddle wheel housing, and the N48 marking is the same on both.

I think the single-funnel steamer on the other side of the river is the Canterbury model, for another Dynamo reprise.  I think the yellow-topped ships to the player-ship's port-aft (thus to the Medway Queen's bow) are the Goliath model - Parks made it home eventually :Smile_teethhappy:.  Some of the smaller and more distant ships might also be Dynamo veterans, but I can't tell from the standard camera viewpoint.

I guess there was a copy-paste error when they assembled the port.  Maybe the original deck doohickeys in that spot didn't copy over properly, and the modeler duplicated the funnel rather than leave the deck open.

Remember, this is the alternative timeline where the high-tier British heavies were actually built. :cap_haloween:
