Lars has asked me to post some pictures of my scratchbuilt Barham (1889) so here it goes.
This is my second cruiser build from Friedman's British cruisers of the Victorian era, after Fearless.
viewtopic.php?f=60&t=156848&view=next
Barham was a much more complex build than Fearless so it took a while. She is attached to a temporary base as she will join her flagship if I ever finish her - Kombrig's Victoria. This also means that she is still without two of her boats as I do not want to risk breaking them off when transferring her to the new base.
I have already worked out drawings for Barracouta so I will see you in 4-ish years -:)

Looks really nice! Do you have any more pictures of the model? I wouldn't mind some more- just to keep me occupied for the next four years until your next project lands!

Regards,
Timothy

This is just gorgeous, congratulations for this very unusual subject!
I always liked the bizarre-industrial look of those late victorian vessels!
Funny, I just finished my "Barham" two months ago, using the same plans. Do You have information / plans on sister "Bellona" and her different gun placements?
Cheers!
Christian

Thanks for the comments. Will try and take some more pictures later. For the differences between Barham and Bellona I mainly used online pictures of the IWM as they have most of the Symonds collection online. The main thing to look out for is not the differences between Barham and Bellona but rather the difference between before and after reboilering. It seems like the main deck gun and the torpedo tubes switched position when the ships were given new boilers and masts in 1899. As you can see I went for the 1893 fit.
1/6000, do you also have pictures?

And all four torpedo cruiser classes in the RN in '700 as they are now. The Archer class hull is by far the most difficult one, you are looking at the third attempt, and will probably be finished last
