Hi Jaguarfold.
                   have a look at these pix. Tell me if this looks a bit more like it.

Looking at your photo's it appears to be an attempt to make a Sun XXV or Sun XXVI because it has a sort of fire monitor platform behind the funnel
I have attached pictures of a Sun xxvi and the Sun Kent for you to compare.  lot of work to do there though, ok2 ok2  but it is more like an attempt at a Sun XXI with added bits. :D

I spent a couple of hours aboard Sun XXVI at Gravesend in November 1996 taking pictures, a few weeks before she was sold by Howard Smith and became 'Saga Moon'.

I have a couple of hundred detail pics (yet to be scanned) if you are interested...  ;)
