|Here are some photos of my model of the Russian predreadnought battleship Sinop. I built it in 1/550 scale from drawings from Tomitch's Warships of the Impreial Russian Navy and
from the Internet. I gather that there may be no reliable plan drawings of the boat deck, so it is a bit iffy there. Anyway, Sinop and her sisters, Imperatritsa Ekaterina II, Chesma, and
Georgey Pobiedonosetz, were attractive ships with a novel main battery arrangement of 6 12-inch guns, two more guns than most predreadnought battleships.
