HMS Diadem 1897 - 1900
« on: September 14, 2007, 03:06:52 PM »

Just wondering if anyone has drawings for 'Diadem' or any of her sisters, eg 'Niobe' et al. These two were both in Killary Harbour on 8th October 1899, as can be seen in this painting based on the well known Lawrence collection photograph and owned by an acquaintance in Dublin.



I'm wondering if a 2nd hand 'Kent' hull, already hacked about by a previous owner, could be adapted. The length overall is very similar.

(the ship in the foreground is said to be 'Pelorus'. 'Diadem' and her sister are possibly the two to the left, follwed by 'Majestic' class battleships.)

I have a Majestic class, you could get the plans from Deans Marine, they will also do a step by step disc as well

I have a set of Niobe plans. They aren't the greatest, but you can see most of what you need to. Let me know if you want a set. Darren

There's a copy of Warship 44 on eBay at the moment. Has a useful article on the Diadem class.
