Valeriy V

Cruiser Varyag 1901 by Valeriy V - scale 1:75

Recommended Posts

One can occasionally find wheel chucks on eBay under 'watchmakers lathe'. I was able to get two sets, large and small, at different times. However, often the ones you see are either rusted or beaten up.

Wow!

 

Valeriy, you have made great progress since I last looked in on this build.

 

Thank you Phil!

I tried to the best of my ability during all your absence. :)

Very nice work Valeriy, as usual. The thing about torpedo nets is how many ships carried them for... maybe 25 years? And as far as I know, they only did what they were designed to do once, at the Japanese attack on Port Darwin in 1904.

On the Varyag with networks it turned out even sadder. From the United States, the Varyag came only with poles. And the networks themselves appeared in Russia later, when Varyag was already flooded in Chemulpo.
