I always had a great liking for the Russo-Japanese War. It probably came from a paper I wrote about the First Pacific Squadron as an undergraduate. In any case, I was very excited when I came across a set of very fine models by Mercator of Russian warships of that period. I bought them all. Later, I added other models. I even modified the POLTAVA class by cutting down the funnels so that each one was different, as they actually were.

And ships from the Second (and Third) Pacific Squadrons.
