HMS Canopus 1/200th Scale Pre-Dreadnought Battleship
Just to prove I haven't been too lazy, here's yet another ship! This time it's a pre-dreadnought battleship, HMS Canopus (more or less). Canopus herself played a rather interesting part in the Battle of the Falklands in 1914. The model is once again in 1/200th scale, and that works out to about 26 inches long (compare that to ~35 inches for USS Astoria, a mere cruiser). For a size comparison, I've included a couple shots of HMS Starling (18 inches). Both Starling and Canopus have been in progress for a number of months, glad to finally get them both posted here =) The last couple pictures are of the "reconstruction." This particular model was knocked off of a top shelf by my four legged friends, and it was a beast to put back together (I ended up with about 10 "spare parts" all told). I'm particularly happy with the main gun barrels, boat davits, and the general work-around I used for the vents. Stay tuned, I have something a little bit bigger coming down the ways soon(ish)!

Quoting "Q M" Christopher Honkzo6 Excellent, you've got the gun placing right as well which gives me added joy. I'm planning on building a minifig-scale Canopus, and this is a big help.
OOO! A mini-fig scale Canopus? That has my interest :D Going through some of my great-grandmother's things, we found a postcard of USS Louisiana in her Great White Fleet attire, really nice and trim looking ship, so if I ever get around to ordering some white and yellow bricks I may tackle that. Pre-dreads are really a fun topic, look forward to seeing yours!

Brilliant work, I love the detailing on this, especially as its (relatively) small scale. 5 stars

Ahh, good 'old Canopus! It's not often that you see a LEGO pre-dreadnought, as they are pretty obscure. However, your model gives full justice to the Canopus! Great work!

You're the pre-dreadnought builder we deserve, and the one we need. Glorious work.
