Thank you Roback, I wouldn't go that far.
A friend on another site is doing an article in a New Zealand magazine on the sinking of the SS BEAVERFORD. And couldn't find a useable photo of ADMIRAL SCHEER after modernisation. I had limited time so 'cheated' a bit and by putting the subject ship quite far away, thereby only suggesting ship details. However the main changes of the modernisation are visible, these are, raked bow, pole mast instead of tower, and a raked funnel top.
