Otway was of similar dimensions but slightly different appearance. Good call by Roger
I believe that the Nelson model was the later Otranto from the 1920s which served as a troopship during WW2 and brought my father back to the UK from India in 1944.
When I made up a diorama in 2014 for the 100th anniversary of Coronel, I used RG42 Otway as a stand-in for Otranto.
