Here is my version of the kit- almost complete  ^^^
My full build so far is on the Mayhem site under the title 'Fear God and Dreadnought'!
My Dreadnought is representative of the vessel in June 1916 with the torpedo nets removed and the new director tower on top of the foretop.
The bridge's navigation deck has been cut back as per the drawing in the Anatomy of the Ship book.
The only items I've changed have been the smaller ship's boats replaced with resin items and all the stanchions are upgraded to turned brass items with 0.2mm nickel silver rod.
