You may also add Lembit ( http://www.tank-net....89#entry1317446) to the list of surviving British submarines.

Ah, that British blessed ignorance that fails to see that majority of problems in ME (and to a lesser extent Balkans also) are there because of the Ottoman empire and their style of "government"... So somehow more Ottoman empire becomes good thing, despite all evidence to the contrary.

 

 

 

 

Ignorance is very soft word for alliance of Western powers (not only Brittan) fighting major war against Russia to save Ottoman empire (despite the war is called “Crimean war”, it was fought from Baltics to Kuril islands)

HMS Warrior, and her awesome gun deck. Awesome until some RN officer comes close and kindly informs you those guns are made of plastic :D. Small price to pay, however, as the machinery and rigging look quite well reproduced.

Only thing that I had problem with is that displayed "Colt" revolvers are Italian copies with a brass frame, and such not good for a period (RN used original Colts and Colt never made brass framed c&b revolvers - only such versions were Confederate copies).
