A couple of comments about the models themselves... Scharnhorst was re-painted in greyfrom East Asia colours early in 1914 after an edict came from Germany and von Spee instructed all his captains to comply. If you wish to re-create the battles, use grey models. The model of Invincible (Navis or Navis N) has the raised fore funnel and is only applicable from 1915/16, although the two sisterships were modified before WW1 started. The Clydeside/Superior model has three equal height funnels but that model is to 1/1200 scale. A photographer on Invincible took photos during the Falklands battle, so the shots are of Inflexible. Without further research, I cannot confirm which turrets on the two ships still had their secondary guns mounted in December 1914.
: A quick answer: Battle of the Falklands, 1914
: HMS Invincible which sank SMS Scharnhorst.
: Models by Navis?
