Poorly reconstructed Nusret minelayer in Tarsus, Turkey in 2003. The major part of the hull comes from the original ship. Some pieces of her original equipment can be seen in Naval Museums in Istanbul and Çanakklale too. These pictures were taken in 2010.

Nusret’s name plates exposed in the Naval Museum at Beşiktaş, Istanbul. The one on the top was used after 1928 and the one on the bottom is the original Ottoman one dated 1331 in the Muslim calendar or 1913 (AD).

Poorly reconstructed Turkish mines are one of very few weaknesses of this beautifully made replica of Nusret.
