15/10/2023. 1910-1914   Orkin 30"   USS Texas Superdreadnought.       Repair and Restoration.

Ten months of blood sweat and tears, not so much a restoration as a total refit. This very rare beast was in a right state when I got her. All the work has been fabricated from scratch, the primary datum being taken from remaining witness marks on the deck and then scaling up from images I found from various sources. Not a bad turnout.
