Just sharing some 15mm/100th scale builds made from scraps; nearest camera, Japanese 'steel truck' coastal freighter (kitbashed, mostly from a Robert E Lee river boat), sailing Junk (old PYRO kit) and a Nationalist Chinese/Chicom Patrol Boat (old PT 109 kit).

Nicely done! Not everyone has the ability to see the conversion possibilities of kits like these … and your freighter is a great example of what you can make from something that was originally very different.

Thanks, Bob.

My intent was to encourage others, particularly the younger folks.

Start small, don't be afraid to make mistakes.

This armed launch came from a Revell USS CONSTITUTION kit.

The freighter looks excellent!

I did some of the cutting the hull bottom off to make 15mm Ships as well:


In this case Iron Rams:



No painted photos of these on my old page:

Thanks, Martin! The Patrol Boat is simply a quick salvage job and I'm not done messing with the junk.

Your kitbashes look like extrapolations of the Confederate semi-submersibles.

Ever heard of Ross Winan's cigar ships?
