    Default Some Ships

    1/1200 Lively and 1/700 Sophie, the two non-scratch ships of my Patrick O’Brian project.

    The Sophie is 3D printed, from Saturnalia Studios. I considered scratching it as the model is not exactly correct, but at that time I hadn’t taken the plunge into building supplies. Lively is a Langton 38, I switched to 1/1200 in the middle of the project as I find scales like 1/700 are not very playable.

    If you have access to a 3d printer try looking at the Wargaming3d site, there are a number of hulls and masts available, if you were not aware that is

    Thanks for the advice! I am aware they exist but have never looked into them. I must do so.

    Its well worth the look, most of the Spanish ships if not all for Trafalgar are there, sized more accurately than the officiall ones, plus other classes for France, Britain, Denmark, and Russia, somI recommend a look.

    Has many more unusual vessels like Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Russian, Turkish...

    Both have a basic line of British, French and some Spanish.
