This page is all about small ships, the sort you take home to mum and that can live on your desk and then take over your room if you are not careful. Mine are all 1/1200 (Mostly Triang Minic) or 1/1250 scale from various manufacturers. Most of the pages here point to Musings because that is where I did a blog post about them. I have almost 100 ships now, in three jam packed display cases and I still have some that are works in progress.
Enjoy your visit and don’t forget to give me a shout if you have a few that you would like to share. I am particularly interested in the Union-Castle vessels.
I have also been working on a 1/1250ish RMS St Helena and have just more or less completed her. The model is not great, but it was a learning curve. There are two pages associated with the model, start at page 1 and work yourself to the end.
The balance of the ships live on the pages below
- Triang Minic Ships,
- More Triang Minic,
- Fleet Manoeuvres,
- Navy Day
- More Small Ships,
- Modelling the Union-Castle Line (1)
- Modelling the Union-Castle Line (2)
- Drydocking the Fleet
Were do I get them? Most of my Triang Minic stuff has come via ebay, but I have also used Convoy Models for my resin cast UC ships, modern Triang stuff is available in many hobby shops, although the best one to try is CN Collectables and I have also bought fittings from a number of sources. I have also bought ships and Triang accessories from Waterline ships. Display cases I get off ebay from Germany. I also recommend Peter Wiedling in Germany for commercial models.
