Re: WIN a free Handmade Ship!
Thank you all for your suggestions, I too thought it may be a FUBUKI anticipation, but was hoping for something a little more definitive. The "1924 JANES FIGHTING SHIPS" was reprinted in the 1960-70's, and can be readily found. I wonder if it carried any information on the 1923 Appropriations and a postulated design. I know JANEs often showed designs that actually came out a bit differently. If someone has the 1924 available, can they look? Or would a later volume be needed ? I've seen several pictures of FUBUKI from the Fwd/Port quarter, and it is easy to miss the aft turret.
It is closer in some aspects to the NAVIGATORI if the funnel/gun were switched, but I think that is a bit later
I Recently received a ship collection of early 1920's ship models made of wood and wire (Like Bass or Lime wood). Included were 20 of the same design I could not identify. The rest of the models were easily identifiable. Attached are some pictures.
The first person who can come up with a verifiable identification of the model wins it (just pay $7.50 shipping). By verifiable, I mean a plan drawing or description that makes sense from a published source. I do believe the models came from the early 1920's, as the other models, wood box, shipping tag seem to bear that out. Came from UK.
I have an plausible idea, but don't want to taint the research efforts. It made be a planned ship that came out differently. A periord Janes might help (one of the other models I could only find in a 1914 Janes). Good Luck!
