Thanks...
I drawn it starting from a cut-off found on internet...i heavily reworked it. The result is quite good for me...good for an A4 print to put in a bedroom poster...maybe not too good, but I fear it's the only such drawing present in the net at the moment

Walter: Could you give us a Lusitania rendering
as she appeared on 7 May 1915, in particular the dis-coloring of her funnels...as seen in Ken Marschall's famous NY harbor painting. A nice starboard profile would be appreciated...kind'a what W. Schweiger may have seen thru his U-boat's periscope.

Walter & all - Actually a drawing I was hoping for would be similar to the identification and signal silhouettes, British Liners. Pictured in
Jane's Fighting Ship's 1914 are silhouettes of of OLYMPIC(Y) , LUSITANIA (W) MAURETANIA (X).
An image of that type, with 7 May '15 colors added, no need to depict the Old Head of Kinsale...
The differating top-decking ventilation pipes of LUCY & MAURY are even seen in the silouettes.
