Hopefully others have pics of some scratchbuilt vessels they could share. Here's my RN "Vosper" MTB in 1/56th scale:


Hopefully I'll have enough free time this winter to build something bigger.

You should make a mould & cast it in resin. Well done

This is a USN LCVP landing craft that I originally built in wood, then reconstructed in plastic card – its now being produced in resin and sold by JTFM:



You can buy it here:

Very nice vessels!

I especially like the MTB.

I've been at it again. This time scratch building a WW1(ish) Sub Chaser. Model is made entirely from wood and metal. Scale is 28mm or in this case 1/56th.
