    "but am still surprised at wooden doors"
    Well Norm, I guess this was around the period of transition from the Ironclads; black / white with yellow funnels (๐Ÿ˜ฎ) and brass and wood all over the place!

    What I thought, but am still surprised at wooden doors. Whatever, they look nicer, give a bit of colour to a warship.

    Hi Norm,
    If that's a true model, which museum models usually are, - at least 'as built or as taken over', - then it looks like all the doors were wooden. Also on the aft cabin.
    Cheers Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    BTW: Don't forget the hinged gunnels for the 4.7s ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Can't say Norm, not really my era, but here's a few more pics and a source you might find useful. You may be right about the doors, considering the dark colour shown in some of these images. Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Thanks. Will give that a try. Do you think it likely she had wooden doors to the aft bridge structure?

    Started a couple of months back on a waterline model of HMCS Rainbow. About time I did a Canadian ship with my living here!
    As with historic ships, the problem has been getting drawings etc. A visit to the Esquimault Naval Museum netted a small number of photos, but they have a 1/4" to the foot model of the ship on display. I got hull profile drawings of her pre building in England, launch 1892.I have assumed the builder of the museum model had reliable drawings and photos. Any other info will be greatly appreciated.
    That model has access doors to both bridges in mahogany. Comments welcome please.
