Anybody interested in Russo-Japanese war ships?

Anybody interested in Russo-Japanese war ships?

If you are familiar with this war you will know what I am talking about. I was thinking of re-enacting the battle where the Russians and Japanese navies met. Instead of crushing Russian "junks" right away, the Japs made a silly manuever, turning around the whole fleet right right under Russian fire. Try as the did, Russian gunners had so little target practice during the voyage to Japan (due to a shortage of ammunition) they made almost no hits. There was an interesting coincidence the Russian are proud of. One of the missiles landed in the captain's cabin several feet away from the great up and coming Admiral of the Japanese fleet.

This is what I was thinking of possibly re-enacting in some way and I was wondering if any of you sea dogs had pictures or links to warships who took part in the Russo-Japanese war.  :o
