While Bellerophon awaits the arrival of some new paint I've returned to my HMAS Sydney.

Most excellent and quite the accomplishment in such an apparently small scale!

Nice! :smiley:

I'd like a HMAS Sydney (I) in 1/350, then I'd buy a SMS Emden & do a little Christmas Island/North Keeling diorama (it bugs me that there are Emden kits in 1/350 available but no Sydney kits).

Yeah never understood it myself.  I was going to do a dio myself with Emden, but decided I wanted a version of each Sydney by themselves

I recommend Dutch Fleet Naval Miniatures on Shapeways for the last two HMAS Sydneys (FFG7 and F100) https://www.shapeways.com/shops/dutchfleet?section=Australia&s=0
