Re: Augusta Victoria model
This is a great information. I acquired a 1/1250 model of Augusta Victoria some years ago for conversion, but put it aside when I read that the vessel was lengthened by 61’ and the middle mast removed, prior to war service. Both the models I found on Sammelhafen appear to have the original configuration of 3 masts. Assuming this is the case, is it worth surgery on a model to add 5/8” to the middle of the hull? Anyone try this already?
In 1904, Germany sold the fast liner Augusta Victoria to Russia. She was renamed to Kuban and became an auxiliary cruiser.
My question: what guns were added to her? How many? And where?
