A beautiful ship with an honorable history. I just finished reading "First Victory" by Mike Carlton. I hadn't realised how effective a raider she'd been - a single ship disrupting Allied trade and troop movements, and tying up the resources of a whole fleet trying to find her. And Sydney only happened to be in the right place because she was escorting a convoy - otherwise Emden could have kept going for a considerably longer time. And she gave a very good account of herself despite being heavily outgunned by Sydney

 

You've made a beautiful model of her, Boris, worthy of such a beautiful ship.

My avatar approves!

 

One thing I notice on your model is that the steam pipes on the forward funnel appear to be on the outside of the grab rails; is that correct? I have a partially completed 1/200 HMV version of this model, and I couldn't tell if the pipes went to the inside or outside -- I ended up putting them on the outside only because I could not figure out any way to put them on the inside.

 

Cheers!

Hello Boris,

that is a great way to build this phenomenal ship and to remember the sailors that manned her. Beautiful built with astonishing detailing.

 

The flag on the bow is placed upside down to the mast... The real German flag starts allways with black on the top* - as you can see on the picture below in the Imperial War Ensign - black-white-red. As in the flag song:

Hope to see some more progress of the EMDEN in her tropical "suit" in the future.

_____

*The Flag of the GDR-nowerdays is wrong as the metallic "colour" (gold) had to be on the top - heraldicaly; in the real German flag the silver=white is in the middle so the heavier colour (black) went to the top.

Take care!
