Re: WIN a free Handmade Ship!
No such design drawings appear in the 1924, 1925, 1927, or 1929 JFS.
But if the aft funnel and the midships gun were reversed in their positions it would most closely match the NAVIGATORI Classin layout.
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!
