is the Airfix 1:600 scale kit of HMS
Iron Duke. I tried to backdate
the kit to circa. 1916. The White Ensign Models photo-etched set
was used.. The deck was replaced with scribed Evergreen styrene. The
boats were reworked to have benches and planking. It's a bit of a quirky
kit - with a number of features that were either deleted or replaced.
The excessive flaring at the end of the main guns; the small "T" s at
the ends of the secondary armament; the grommet-like portholes and elaborate
spotting top, all had to go.
