Have red, gold green and white raked stripes on the tail fin? The raking should match the angle of the leading edge of the fin.
If I wasn't so terrible at drawing I'd sketch it.
While the Brits could back Chile, I don't think they'll miss the opportunity to use this to settle the 'Falklands Question' with Argentina. Back Argentina, provide intel and political support, and in return get the Argentinian government to finally acknowledge British sovereignty over the Falklands. Possibly toss in a preferrential trade/fishing agreement to sweeten the deal and get better access to Argentine markets while they're at it.I am doubtfull on two points here.
First would Britain realy back Chile to that extent?
Because of point two, would the LoN back an aggressive war by Chile?
And while I can see the USA backing Chile to a degree here, I doubt they want to build the precedent of aggressive war as being ok. More so as they would probably face a block of other nations that have to lose something if this is going to happen... you know keeping the status quo and all that.
Is Yuri going to enter history as Yuri the Patient? Is he doomed to pine after Zella fruitlessly forever? Or will Zella realise too late her true feelings for Yuri? Stay tuned for another exciting episode of Stupid Luck and Happenstance! Same Bat-time! Same Bat-Channel!A lifetime had given Manfred von Richthofen a bit of perspective over matters he was mostly past. Mostly it revolved around how silly the games young people played were. Sitting in his seat, he observed how Emil Holz’s girl Zella and Yuri, the Cameraman, who was accompanying her were attempting to act as if they were just co-workers. Manfred knew that they had been all over the World over the last few years and if there were any chemistry between them, nature would eventually run its course. Of course, sometimes it took a while to get there. Käte would have laughed at what was going on here. She would have said that if it was obvious to the likes of Manfred, then it must be to everyone else. It would have made sitting in the tight confines of the Dorner Private Jet that Manfred owned for this extended flight to Argentina uncomfortable it he couldn’t see the humor in the situation. The two of them were with Manfred so that they could film this trip for the people back home.
I think Kiki is going to be OK and a fantastic mum. Still neurotic as hell though. And that river/canal cruise idea could be exactly what they all need.Minutes later, as the fireworks display reached its conclusion Kiki finally got Nina to calm down, though she suspected that it was more exhaustion and relief that the loud noise from the fireworks were over. Climbing down the ladder to the saloon, Kiki realized that she still had months of leave ahead of her. If she wanted to, she could spend the summer on the Meta. The Black Sea, the South of France, or any number of other places were within reach. Ben would need to be talked into it, but it would be a comfortable way to learn to be a family. With that, the engine of the Meta turned over and she got underway, bound for her mooring which was just a short walk from home. She could get used to having someone else to do the piloting as well now that she was thinking about it.
The ML Meta is a Dutch Barge with a flat bottomed hull and shallow draft. Perfect for rivers and canals. She can operate in sheltered coastal waters such as the Baltic in calm weather, but the open ocean, even the South Pacific, is out of the question.If they have a LPD or LSD heading out to the PacFleet load the Meta on board and fly out when it gets to Japan or the German Pacific Islands. Then have a cruise so the little one can meet the cousins in Japan or cruise the islands where they love Kiki and would want to meet the little one also.
I mean OTL if the Argentinians had waited for a decade the Brits would have probably handed those Islands over without a fuss. They were important when the Empire still needed them as a coaling station, and then again once they were invaded. Not in between. In fact, they were considered a drain on resources in the between times...While the Brits could back Chile, I don't think they'll miss the opportunity to use this to settle the 'Falklands Question' with Argentina.

Even inshore, boats like the Meta would, as the old salts might say, “roll on wet grass”.The ML Meta is a Dutch Barge with a flat bottomed hull and shallow draft. Perfect for rivers and canals.

When you see the young Queen Elizabeth taking a narrowboat through the Norfolk Broads, you know it's become a thing.Kiki could start a trend where traveling through Europe in a personal water craft is something that is both adventurous in some ways and safe at the same time.
Various local governments or private companies can establish docks with electrical, water, and waste management hook ups for overnight stays which will encourage tourism.
One of the things I wanted to do was take one of those boats you can rent and go through the old Erie Canal and I was saving my money for it but things just didn't work out but it was still enough to dream and plan for it.
If Kiki does gets to design and build her own boat she can always use the Meta for her support team.
