Victory looks beautiful, and the Vulcan is one of the nicest-looking small vessels on Shipbucket.

Thanks Carthaginian, I believe you mean the Nelson instead of the Victory, though the differences between the two is marginal at best. I'm glad you like the Vulcan, she was a very fine and extremely maneuverable vessel in her time.

Isn't it facing the wrong direction? I thought starboard was standard.

Yes it is facing the wrong way, that's as I'm working from a rare source which faces that way, it will be flipped as the ship was symmetrical on.

A small FYI: Attached are two sets of plans for a Imperial Russian Torpedo Boat Sookhum. (Sorry if anglised spelling is incorrect) The plans are from a Russian site which has scans of various magazines.

Why am I posting these? Oddly enough Sookhum was a sister ship to HMVS Childers.

Cheers

....*Head Explodes*. I'd heard of the Russian sister but I was under the impression that they differed slightly. There are small differences though that I can pick, the outer railing on the Childers continues further fore and that the boat was at one point(briefly) carried aft of the funnels. But I see this has better detail than my source and I'll have to give it an update
