Other than a few kits, navy ship models of late 19th early 20th century were for decades ignored by model companies (US market anyway).  Glad to see them showing up during recent years.
Enjoyed careful study of build details which you obviously paid much attention to.  Like how deck contrasts realistically with superstructure, boats, guns, and fittings.  Doing the rigging with its many attachment points to deck and masts is an UGH job, though must say you got it.  The more one (a model builder) looks the more one sees lotta work done with fine results.  :smiley:  :smiley:  :smiley:
Considering starting ship kitbash so paying more attention to ships. 
Get flashback of 4-stacker destroyers.
