Bitte, Ich kanne verstehe nur ein bischen Deutsche.
So, with your permissions I will resort to American!
I have been working on this model for a few months. Inflexible was begun in 1874 and launched, I think, in 1877. It had iron armor and framing with muzzle loading guns. The belt armor of iron and teak was 2 feet thick. For loading the guns were rotated to the central glacis and loaded with mechanisms below the deck.
I hope to turn this into a kit (GBM: Golden Bear Models) soon after its completion.
I will leap to recent pictures that show its current state of completion. If there is interest I will show photos of earlier construction.
I might point out that the model and construction has been planned to build things as separate assemblies as much as possible. Only recently have I glued down the fore and aft structures as well as the catwalk. Currently the funnels, masts and forward raised decks are still unglued.
