Re: History Quiz #146
Automedon and Atlantis are the ships I was looking for.
The model on the left is Glaucus by Albatros (AL-48) which was one of 11 sisters in the class.
And the Atlantis is of course by Neptun.
Perhaps the Blue funnel model was Nestor, NEL 11.
Looks like the German Raider Atlantis by Neptun which attacked Automedon north of Sumatra and captured plans of Singapore which were of use to the Japanese when they attacked. The model is not labelled Automedon but the style of the modelling suggests it might be a Nelson model of one of the Blue Funnel ships that was built to replace WW1 losses.
Identify these two ships (and models) and the historical connection between them. Take the model on the left as representative of her class.
