    Thanks mate. At present no-one seems to have any stud link chain in stock. Have finalised the boats - 3 cutters, 3 whalers, 1 motor launch and a dinghy - see pic

    Jeez! You do come up with 'em don't you Norm!?๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Testing me again?๐Ÿ˜‰
    Best I can do is the attached two pics.
    One showing Rainbow, the other HMCS Niobe of the same era. Both at anchor with detail of the bow.
    Incidentally; Niobe preceded Rainbow as the first HMCS ship by just two weeks.
    Both pics seem to show the chain links as being as near as dammit the same length as the inner diameter of the portholes.
    So I reckon if you take that as your guideline you won't be far wrong.๐Ÿ‘
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Doug,
    Have a measurement problem. How long would anchor chain links have been in the early 1900s? I would assume about 18"?

    I have given Rainbow two cutters and two whalers, and think will add one 30ft launch and a sixteen foot dinghy. Does this sound about what she would have carried?

    Aha! Cleaned me glasses and enlarged the photo!๐Ÿค“
    Now I see it, gun barrel hidden under the deck.
    And the 'bar' is the outboard deck support.
    Very good Chief๐Ÿ‘

    Look carefully and you will see the gun shield underneath the raised deck. I have them facing fore and aft, so no barrel protruding.

    With regard to the workmanship Martin I agree with you.
    But I know from helping with research for his previous models that Norm is a stickler for details, as far as humanly possible! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Norm: that reminds me!
    Have we seen any pics of your completed Dreadnought!?
