Thanks for explanation on the Torpedo tube Haddock.
Never thought a warship of that size would have torpedo tubes fore and aft.
You live and learn. Thanks Haddock......

There were also two more tubes below the waterline. They were fitted around the area of the main forward gun turret. The ship carried fourteen torpedoes (15"). Don't think they were very effective and I've yet to find any record of them being used, except in practice.

Mainmast and derricks rigged. Gaff plus rigging for same to go on yet.
I found threading the pulleys quite difficult.

                         Just plastic I'm pleased to say. The pulling boats aren't very nicely done, the gunnel's are very thick, to scale, about 12ins, but the innards are separate pieces, bit difficult to thin down without losing the shape.

       Boats painted and in place. The "goalposts" are just there to fix the position of the boats, it's all rather cramped in that area.

Fore-deck and quarter-deck railings added, plus one or two other bits and bobs.
Still more detail to add yet.

I'll trump that Kiteman!
It looks excellent in pictures and will be breath taking up close.
