HMS Warrior (1906) 1/200th
Armored Cruiser, HMS Warrior, completed in 1906 and lost in the Battle of Jutland in 1916.
About this creation

Here's my interpretation of the Armored Cruiser HMS Warrior (not to be confused with the more famous HMS Warrior now preserved at Portsmouth, which was the first iron-hulled armor plated warship).

Completed in 1906 as the first member of the Warrior sub-class of the Duke of Edinburgh class of armored cruisers. The ships of the Warrior class were the first of the British cruisers to have their secondary armament mounted in turrets rather than in casemates in the hull. Unfortunately, the armored cruiser was quickly made obsolete by the introduction of the faster, more powerfully armed battlecruisers and dreadnought battleships. Warrior was sunk at the Battle of Jutland, along with all but one of the other cruisers that made up the 1st Cruiser Squadron.

HMS Warrior was armed with six BL 9.2 inch MK X guns and four BL 7.5 inch guns, all mounted in single turrets. At 505.3 feet overall, the model works out to be about 96 studs or 30 inches in length. I'm very pleased with how the model came out, except for a lack of detailed plans which means some of the details are somewhat "made-up." The chain going along the length of the model is to represent the rolled up torpedo netting often found on warships of the WWI era.

































Here are some comparison shots with my USS Astoria (the larger, solid gray cruiser), and a quick model I did of HMS Caroline (the smaller, light gray cruiser). Both ships are also in 1/200 scale.

Brilliant design, the SNOT hull is very well made, and it looks very realistic. The detail is great too!

Very nice. Definitely captures the turn-of-the-century design that was common through the Great War.

Great job. My great grandfather died on Warrior at Jutland. This is the best way to visualize the ship.

You make very nice ships, and you ironclads are really beautiful and accurate! I love that type of big behemoth so much! =)

Quoting Mark Rodrigues Wonderful work! You have managed to capture those uncluttered lines of an armored cruiser perfectly. I, myself, am contemplating doing a pre-dreadnought battleship but have not decided on the ship yet. Anyway, just keep those brilliant creations of yours coming. Cheers!
Mark! Thanks very much for the kind comments! Your ships are absolutely amazing! The Great War era ships have a wonderful charm to them. Warrior convinced me to build a Canopus, which I was going to photo and put up soon, but today it had an unfortunate incident provoked by my cats, so there is nothing left!

Really excellent work you got there... I like the "Lego rule bending" stuff (such as the flag staffs at the ends) you got in there, and I'm deeply impressed by the way you constructed the torso of this beast. So, ever thought about working on the Bismarck or Yamato? :D
