  Clicked on one of the videos listed alonside yours, Gingyer, about the Siege of Malta. Terrible mish-mash but some interesting shots of 4- and 8-barrelled pompoms in action.

I've done it all my life;
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps 'em on the knife.

Absolutely beautiful looking hull, but the superstructure looks like it came form a corn flakes box.
just my opinion it is ugly, but the hull looks great..........
