The picture above is of the second of the conversions undertaken for the 1914 Turkish fleet using Minifigs ships. She is the Reshadieh or HMS Erin as she became after having been seized by the Royal Navy. I opted for her rather than HMS Agincourt simply because she was a very easy conversion to do whereas the Agincourt would have been rather more ambitious!
She was a good ship although quite short ranged by Royal Navy standards although as she was only used in the North Sea this was not so much of a handicap. It does mean though that both her and the Yavuz will need to consider frequent coaling stops whilst out raiding allied supply lines.
As mentioned the model was very straightforward to make and merely involved removing the third funnel and clearing the top of the rear deck house from one of the Lion class models I have and simply adding a turret. Some plastic rod was added to the rear of the new turret for some detailing.
Strictly speaking 'Q' turret should be a deck higher than on the Lion but this would have involved some fairly drastic surgery and so I left it as is.
I have changed my mind about converting another of the Lions so Reshadieh will be the only one. The two ships will form a powerful force that the Royal Navy will have to treat with respect and that will need to be urgently dealt with as soon as they are able to.
