Amazingly one of Kitchner's Nile Gunboats, the Malik, from the 1897 Nile Campaign has survived and now graces the Blue Nile Sailing Club in Khartoum. I had considered trying to do a "condensed" version of the Malik when I did the Nile Campaigns years ago, but as with other naval attempts gave up on such a large endeavor. Other makers have now done them, of course.

Production of a steam launch, the inspiration for the "gunboat" shown in Randy's photo, might be more likely when I get around to my Great American Movie series.
