|These are some photographs of my recently completed model of the Russian predreadnought Gangout. We have had a lockdown due to the Wuhan virus here in Hawaii that has given me loads of free time to work on this model that has been sitting
on my desk since November. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. I had concerns about it’s small size (it is a little more than 6 inches long) and black hull that makes it impossible to see details. I have seen nicer models of Gangout, but I
think my results could have been worse, so I am happy. The scale is 1/550 and the model is scratch built in cardboard.
