I completely destroyed the Tumbling Dice model of the Peruvian central battery ironclad Independencia at the weekend, in an attempt to remove the sails attached to the foremast. I was about to order a replacement when I thought about using the ASV45 Armide model as an alternative, which is near enough the right shape and size. It also doesn’t have the sails cast on to the model, so wouldn’t need any surgery to look like the actual thing for the Battle of Iquique. As an added bonus, I happen to have a model already assembled as the Dannebrog for my now mothballed 1864 project, so all I need to do is add a replacement funnel and possibly remove some of the spars, with a new shorter base glued underneath to match the other ships in the Peruvian fleet.
