Hi Everyone. Just wanting to let you know I have finished my 1/32nd scale model of the Gayundah and the finished result can be seen on my blog link
Or you can Google Col's Tanks
Thanks for looking.
Cheers
Col

Great looking gunboat.

Absolutely brilliant.

Well done.

Main gun is on display on a plinth outside the Australian War Memorial, Canberra, in case you didn't know.

In far better shape than the remaining hull, a rusting away breakwater at Woody Point, Redcliffe Peninsula (I have been visiting this site regularly since around 1963).

Have a great day, Frank

Thanks Everyone, for your very kind comments. Might look at a 2nd class Torpedo Boat next, NSW and QLD had them, and would be a bit easier than Gayundah!
Frank, the original main armament (8 inch) is on display at the QLD Maritime Museum. I'm not sure where the later (6 inch) is on display. That might be the one at Canberra.

SaltyDog,

You are correct – gun in Canberra is the 6". link

I'm up in Brissy in August, so I'll try to see the Qld Maritime Museum.

Have a great day, Frank
