Last week I finished my second set of models of the Peruvian navy circa the War of the Pacific (1879-1882), this time in 1/2400th scale. All the models are from tumbling dice, a wonderful little company that makes a great and very reasonably priced range of 2400th ships from the age of steam and iron – Including all the ships needed to wargame the War of the Pacific.
The Fleet all together.
From furthest to closest – the Sloop Pilcomayo, The Turret ship Huáscar and the Corvette Unión.
Whilst Tumbling Dice make a very nice model of the Huáscar, I took it upon myself to adjust it slightly to capture the character of the original ship, I did a very simple conversion, removing the masts and bow section and replacing them with a narrow flag pole out of brass wire and resulting the bow out of miliput. I’m really rather chuffed with how it turned out.
I have also painted up the Chilean fleet and will post some photos of it once the bases for them have turned up and they can be finished.
Oh, I also pained up some Brigade Models Airships for use with my Russian Fleet.
Tell me what you think
