1700
Battle of Lemnos

  • move
Basilios Giehos shares another amazing diorama with us. The ship at the center of the show is the iconic Hellenic Navy's armored cruiser, Georgios Averof . Basilios depicts the Averof during the Battle of Lemnos, 1913. The small in scale cruiser from YS Masterpieces but has the same excellent quality as his big brother in 1/350 scale. This model was built for Basilios's participation in the IPMS Scale Model World in Telford. His inspiration comes from a painting which is held in Naval Museum of Athens.

The masts of the kit were rebuilt from brass rods. The resin barrels were also replaced from brass barrels. An elastic thread of 0.001dm was used for rigging. The aerial antennas were scratch built from photo-etched rings and elastic thread. Smoke effects from the barrels were made by hand painted cotton and PVA glue. Water effects by bombs are from cotton and acrylic gel. As always the whole project has painted using acrylics and some oils for the sea.

Model Shipwrights woulf like to thank Basilios Giehos for providing us with photos of his Georgios Averof from the Battle of Lemnos!
