Which ships are in bad need of a cosmetic makeover?

My vote goes to the ugly stepchild of WOWS.

Murmansk.  :cap_fainting:

That poor thing is such an eyesore that I can't stand to even look at it let alone play it. I have to fight the constant urge to sell it.

Most ships are a treat for the eyes due to the level of detail and color palate. Poor Murmansk looks as if it was designed with McPaint c. 1997.

 

:Smile_child:

 

Any other ships in need of some love from the design team?

Gearing. She sits too high in the water and has eaten too many Twinkies.

As far as truly cosmetic changes, a great deal of the older ships, especially USN and IJN, have a lot more rust than newer models. I’d like to see WG spend some time cleaning them up.

The A hulls for Izumo and the IJN T4 BB are totally missing any small details on deck, just a vast expanse of timber deck and unadorned superstructure. They desperately need more detail.

Here's looking at you KUMA....ohh the nastyness. Good little ship, nasty as hell default paint schemes. Rusty and faded as heck.

Izumo. Maybe after the US DDs get their remodels, she'll get the redo (or replacement) she surely needs.

 

That superstructure.... bleh.

Nelson. Most RN BBs are ugly but Nelson and her sister Rodney, have got to be the ugliest BBs in history.

Izumo for sure. That Easter Island head/Squidward house superstructure just looks ridiculous. Of course, the almost completely clear deck doesn’t help, but I’m just glad I won’t have to look at it if I ever grind that line (since the zoomed out view is from behind the ship).

Weser’s spindle mast could use some some work too. With a saw to the base of it.

Was going to say QE, (CV version,) but, whatever.

Murmansk, Marblehead, are fine. Love the heck out of those porcupines.

Red October...

...that thing is on par with QE, (CV.)

I couldn't agree more.  Apparently her remodel is nearly done, alongside the rest of the US DD line, and will be put in the live game before the end of the year.  Hopefully the new model is very similar in size and freeboard to the Yue Yang model - they should be identical with Gearing just being a bit longer.

Oktober Revulsion.

Stem to stern , keel to mast-top, side to beastly side.

Ugly is as ugly does.

Good guns and I like to play her but yes, there are days when i wish they'd make a paperbag camo for her. She sure is not pretty :-)

Okt Rev.

T6-8 German DD.

Anything with camo motif akin to spaceships, anime, road warrior, monsters, birds or neon camo.

I don’t understand the antipathy some folks have for ships like Nelson, Lenin and Izumo. I love the “business in the front” ships.

What I really don’t like is the mesh cone masts on the old American dreadnoughts. Looks like grandma sat down to knit herself a battleship from the keel up and ran out of wool.

LOL...

Why does that remind me of something from Disneyworld?  Maybe a cross between Cinderella's castle and the pirates of the Caribbean ride, with a little bit of the Nautilus thrown in.

Atago is an amazing ship, but her model seems a bit half-baked to me. I'd love to see her touched up to the quality of more recent ship releases.
