Re: HMS Agincourt
the other name for her was the big ship, i believe she only ever firedONE full broadside and after that a delay was built into the firing circuit so there was a minute gap between turrets to reduce the stress and blast !
Couldn't agree more. Just beautiful!
One of my favourite Royal Navy dreadnoughts. Always remember the description "looked like a battleship exploding when she delivered a full broadside".
I've still got the Combrig 1/700 and ISW 1/350 kits in my stash. Won't be building the 1/700 but the 1/350 maaaaaaay happen...okay, it's a big maybe... :-)
Beautiful model of a beautiful ship with a great nickname - the "Gin Palace"
