I would say that Belfast and Cavalier are well represented on their own websites with
virtual tours, plus the many publications out there and on line. Other than that, I'd say any of the
those on the list.

Thanks both
In that case I propose starting with the ships in the US as they might be less familiar to our UK based members than the ships which we are so lucky to have over here
Thanks for the comments and for bringing it to notice Colin
I will post some soon

Dear all
On reflection I have started with HMAS Vampire (and as a bonus HMAS Onslow alongside) both in Sydney as part of the Australian National Maritime Museum as I thought a Daring would be of interest to many Deans Modellers
She is preserved in immaculate condition
The photos are now in the Museum Ships Gallery
Pictures taken in 2012
Enjoy!

Dear all
For the second tour I have posted photos of the USS Olympia C-6 one of the more beautiful museum ships (IMHO) along with pictures of the Balao Class Guppy conversion submarine the USS Becuna, both currently afloat in Philadelphia, PA, USA.
Photos taken in the Spring of 2014

Would you have any photos of HMS Undaunted 1886.  I found a family member who was serving on her in 1901.
