                        Got these from Croppers at different times because I felt they were different enough to make an interesting display. See what you think.
                    This was quite an important ship. It took part in the raids on Scarborough, Whitby and Hartlepool although not actually firing any shots. It was at the battle of Jutland and fired the first shots at the start of WW2.
              Although the box says 1935, some research shows that late 1936 is actually a more accurate representation as modelled.
                As your probably aware, I've been a bit under the weather lately so modelling has taken a bit of a back seat. When it was time I thought I should get my lazy self started again, anything complex or fiddly seemed out of the question so I thought some "crash bang whollop" type of modelling might fit the bill, so to give myself enough to do, starting both seemed a good idea.
               Here's progress to date. The pictures probably speak for themselves. Water-lined and lots of dry fitting but not a great deal stuck together other than with Humbrol Maskol so I can rip it apart. 
                  I need to do this so I can plan where the rigging will fall, sus out how to re-engineer the masts and other stuff, then plan the painting.

Just to show the most noticeable between 1935 and 1936, note the "swallows nests" on the port bow, starboard side is the same.

Thought it was time to work on one model and get a bit more adventurous.
                           So here's the main-mast on the 1908 version, a mix of brass tube, rod, etched brass and plastic, bit fiddly.

Taken with flash hence the lousy colour.

Looks like another excellent model for the Haddock Navy.

Hi Haddock,
Looking good, I always like your 'Dreadnought' era ships, they have real character in them.
Cheers,
Bigkev

                                          1936 Version.
                   Think this is as far as I can go before sloshing some paint on.
Lot of attachment points for rigging added, you can't see 'em but they're there, honest.

                            1908 Version.
                        Next job a tidy up.
              Then an orgy of sloshing paint on both models.

How come your sloshing paint on never looks like when I have sloshed some paint on ???????
