:welcome: to modelwarships.com

An unusual but well deserved ship to make a model of!!

Coincidentally... I came across this fine photo of Drotning V from the
Blog of a japanese Digital colorist....
link below

http://livedoor.blogimg.jp/irootoko_jr/ ... ca0c29.jpg

Please show more images of this model-- either before paint and/or

close-up images are always interesting--especially when constructed all of wood.

You may find the work of this modeller interesting also...

Splendid work about a very interesting ship !

I wonder about the wisdom of using wood as a building material though, as it might not age too well, especially if mixed with plastic and metal.

Hi James,

Nice build!
Very happy to see a build of one of our "Pansarskepp" = Armoured ship.
She is one of our three Coastal defence ships or Coastal battleships as they were also called.

Why Your interest in swedish ships?

Please post more pics!!!

Cheers!

Patrick

Does anyone here know who makes a 1/700 kit of any of the Swedish coastal defence battleships? Namely the Sverige, the Drotning Victoria and the Gustav V?

HP models only seems to offer a kit of the Royal Swedish Navy cruiser Gotland, but no Swedish battleships.

They have some fine lines, if you know what I mean, and they look similar to the British R class battleships or even the Queen Elizabeth's battleships in their 1920s configuration.

Great looking array of ships!!

...and tempting me to ask for more photos of the individual ship models

they look fabulous!

more photos please--bigger photos and closer up--it looks most interesting

particularly that French vessel--==> Dupoy de lome?

Best wishes

Jim Baumann
