Williamstown Shipyard - Torpedoboat Flotilla

I started work last night on my torpedoboats for a mooted Fort Gellibrand game in the near future. They are from the top Comissioner, No.1, Nepean and Lonsdale. I have photographed my original Nepean for reference - it's in it's post 1886 configuration which is fine, but I've decided to do it and it's sister in their original configuration, with no dropping gear and the bow torpedo tube.
You'll notice some torpedoes I've started making to the right of the picture.

I've test-fitted the deck-houses to the Nepean and Lonsdale and you'll note the work done on the sterns of Commissioner and No. 1.
More tomorrow.
