  • The measurements are slightly off by an inch or two between several of the infobox measurements and the prose. It's either a rounding error on the part of a convert template or something else, but it needs to be clarified.
  • "The Hector-class ships had one 2-cylinder horizontal return connecting-rod steam engine..." -- as this paragraph is worded, it sounds as if both ships shared the listed equipment. The sentences just need slight retweaking.
  • "... but the hoisting gear was never fitted." -- on either ship, I presume?
  • "Both ships did little of significance until they were assigned to the Particular Service Squadron from June to August 1878 during the Russian war scare during the Russo-Turkish War, under the command of Admiral Geoffrey Hornby." -- This implies they did something significant during the war, but it isn't addressed where they went or what they did over the course of that event.
  • "...under the command of Admiral Geoffrey Hornby." -- this sentence is a little vague. Do you mean one or both of the ships was under his command, or that the entire squadron was?I suspect it's the squadron but it isn't explicitly clear.
  • "She was offered for sale in 1922, but there were no takers so that she was converted into a floating oil tank in 1926 and towed to Hamoaze.[20]" -- You don't mention anything about her history between this and her scrapping.
    • Umm, she's a floating oil tank. There is no published history for this time.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 03:28, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Footnote 1 needs a source.
  • Dablinks return no problems. There are no external links, and there are no disambiguation links. I see no problems with article stability or neutrality, and the image appears to be properly licensed.
Placing the article on hold pending improvements. —Ed!(talk) 03:08, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
All done. Thanks for the review.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 03:28, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
