Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905)
The naval battle begins! A Pre-dreadnought battleship battle!
About this creation
A small Russo Japanese War naval battle. The two ships are the Suvirov (a my own modified version of the Borodino class Battleship) and the Mirai, (a modified Mikasa Battleship).
The idea is the same of my previous ships, make lots of ships with few details, and create amazing naval battles.
More info here, please click!

- Sir, we have detected a japanese Warship. It seems to be the battleship Mirai.
- Prepara for battle, let´s sink that ship and send all their crew to the Davy Jones' locker!
-Yes sir!

In the Imperial Japanese battleship, everybody screams: "For the Emperor! BANZAI!!! BANZAI!!! BANZAI!!!"
Both ships open fire. Who will win?

The Suvirov lacks the secondary turrets of the Borodinos, but carries more guns and armor.

The Mirai (future in japanese), the pride of the Japanese Imperial Navy.

From Wikipedia
"The Battle of Tsushima (Japanese: 対馬海戦, tsushima-kaisen, Russian: Цусимское сражение, Tsusimskoye srazheniye), commonly known as the “Sea of Japan Naval Battle” (Japanese: 日本海海戦, nihonkai-kaisen) in Japan and the “Battle of Tsushima Strait”, was the major naval battle fought between Russia and Japan during the Russo-Japanese War. This was naval history's only decisive sea battle fought by modern steel battleship fleets,the first naval battle in which wireless telegraphy played a critically important role, and has been characterized as the "dying echo of the old era – for the last time in the history of naval warfare ships of the line of a beaten fleet surrendered on the high seas."
It was fought on May 27–28, 1905 (May 14–15 in the Julian calendar then in use in Russia) in the Tsushima Strait between Korea and southern Japan. In this battle the Japanese fleet under Admiral Tōgō Heihachirō destroyed two-thirds of the Russian fleet, under Admiral Zinovy Rozhestvensky, which had conducted a voyage of over 18,000 nautical miles (33,000 km) to reach the Far East. In London in 1906, Sir George Sydenham Clarke wrote, "The battle of Tsu-shima is by far the greatest and the most important naval event since Trafalgar";"

A Pre dreadnought battleship battle!

Quoting Anders T Thank you for your comment on HMS Surprise. I actually saw these ships before joining mocpages. And was happy to be reminded to comment on them. The ships from that period were wonderful- "steampunk" but real. One could see it was all experimental with a lot of gaps between technology, design, tactics and reality. I understand your choise of scale and it works very well, but it would be beautiful to see, at least one of these ship, in a bigger scale. (it doesn´t have to be minifig) Great presentation btw.
Thank you so much for your reply. Right now, I don´t have plans for a new Pré-Dreagnouth. I´m working on a new large scale battleship and a smaller, but minifig scale armored cruiser. Hope to hear more from you soon! Eínon

Quoting Mark Rodrigues Love the way you’ve staged this naval engagement. These ships must be my favourite amongst your warship creations. I’m really partial to Pre-dreadnoughts, protected cruisers and warships from this period. Your superb vessels also remind me of those wonderful tin toy boats. Well, I just might do one of these old battlewagons for my next project. Regards.
I´m glad to listen that! XD

Looks really good, the ships are great, but not to complicated. That bit of history has always fascinated me! =)

Well done! Keep up the good work. What scale are these new ships? I am currently working on the Japanese Destroyer Yukikaze (1" = 108") to go with my Battleship Yamato diorama from 'Operation Ten Go'. Yukikaze's hull is almost done. -Marcello
