Filipe Ramirez:

I think you must already be aware are this site, but just in case, I thought I should list it. I just stumbled upon the Dhonburi section this afternoon. There is a nice drawing of the Dhonburi and quite a few photos of the ship & her sisters & even a painting.

As I'll be building another coast-defence ship in the near future (HMTBD Velox will be next though!), I've got some questions to contribute to this thread.

Paper Shipwright have just released a 1/250 scale card model of the Danish coast defence ship Peder Skram. This ship was built in 1908, and served until WW2 when it was captured and used as a flak ship by the Germans (after being scuttled in 1943); it was eventually sunk in 1945 by Allied bombing, and was raised + scrapped in 1949. It had two near-sisters, Herluf Trolle and Olfert Fischer, both scrapped in the 1930s.

I ordered the PS card kit yesterday, and am planning on scratchbuilding a 1/96 styrene model using this card model as a plan, the same way I built HMVS Cerberus (also from a PS card model). However, I wouldn't have been able to complete Cerberus to anywhere near as high a level of detail without the many contemporary photographs and drawings of the ship which I downloaded from http://cerberus.com.au . Paper Shipwright's kits are very accurate and detailed for their size, but if you're building a model 2.6 times as large, a lot more detail is needed! (this is a problem I've also encountered with my current scratchbuild USS Hazard, the card model for which is fairly basic and simplified)

I'm not sure what date the kit represents, as the ship was refitted a number of times before WW2. At one point it had a catapult floatplane (a license-built Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 monoplane) which would be interesting to build.

After searching on Google I've found the following pages on the Peder Skram:
http://www.milhist.dk/weapons/shipdata/skram_1908.htm
http://navalhistory.dk/English/TheShips ... fense(1908).htm (can't get this one to work as a URL for some reason)
Both of these have some interesting + useful history and data on the ship but very little in the way of photos.

and this page:
http://navalhistory.dk/English/History/1939_1945/US/PederSkram_us.htm
with a large collection of photos of the scuttled ship in 1943.

Anyway, my question is - does anyone know of any other sources of reference on this ship - in online or book form? Jane's Fighting Ships of WW1 has a small photo and (I think) a small line drawing or silhouette, but that's about it.

I have Vainammoine. Very nice tiny model. I have her planned to be built for ages but can't figure out her camo scheme by 1942 which is quite nice but photos are erratic and no profiles of her camo scheme are available as far as I am aware. Also, there would be the issue of what paints to use.

Brazilian Navy mantains till today the Monitor "Parnaíba", comissioned in 1938. For its 69 years, the ship is in excellent conditions. You can see and read more at:

Enjoy!!! :thumbs_up_1:

I now have three models of M-class monitors in 1/600:

http://ptdockyard.com/1600-russian-civil-war/

M-25 with 7.5"
M-27 with Triple 4"
M class with two 6"

I'm not aware of any other M-class kits out there now.
