1/550 French battleship Brennus (Scratchbuilt)
I built this model using plans I obtained from Modelarstwo Okretowe. This model represents the ship after reconstruction. Due to instability problems, the ship was lowered one deck, had her rear military mast replaced with a pole mast, and had an underwater bulge installed. However, all this work did not solve her instability problems. After her rebuild, she heeled so much when both main turrets were trained on the same beam that her armor belt was submerged.
