This is one of my favourite wrecks.
The SS Thistlegorm:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Thistlegorm
A British ship sunk 1941 in the Red Sea.
There are motorcycles, trucks, tanks and even two steam locomotives on the ship!

Here's a page with lot of pictures, a 3d view and movies about it.

I think this would be a good choice. It's supposed to be a great wreck to dive in one of the best diving destinations in the world.

Nice. Lots of variety, it's not just the wreck but the cargo that we need to see in the dives, Thanks Egyptsun for the post.

Would be a great diving site, could have a contest finding all the different objects scattered in and around the ship.

It's got my vote, but only because the Eaton didn't sink when the Wisky hit her. She did break her keel though.

I really like the idea of the SS Thistlegorm wreck. This wreck is featured in one of the Depth Hunter 2 levels. I looked around and saw the train engine along with other train cars. There were also tanks and trucks and other smaller objects scattered around. I also saw a deck gun, and an anchor and chain along with a detailed anchor winch.

I wonder if our total pledge amount would cover the cost of modeling all of these objects?

That might be true... In the other hand: all these objects are reusable vor other Vertigo or WOD projects.
They might even have some.

I hope it is possible. I think the SS Thistlegorm wreck should be included in a game named "World of Diving". If our funds can not cover it, I hope it can be included as a future DLC.
