At Black Cat Bases, you will find a pirate ship in 28mm led by its crew of skeletons. This ship is advertised as being compatible from 15 to 40mm and it is sold 76.

I do so wish that manufacturers of ships would have a look at some before spending so much time and effort creating an inferior product. There are too things that are almost consistently wrong with what is offered commercially – the water-line and the curvature of the hull. Most ships are portrayed far too high out of the water and would be in danger or rolling and capsizing .. and ships hulls and sterns are curved!!! Why usually show them as slab sided? Admittedly it is much harder to pull off in laser cut kits – but resin ones should not be impossible to get right.

These guys do it right with a laser cutter:

I can't recommend them enough.

close to topic, but a little off.

I want to do the Battle of Trafalgar . I have seen beautiful colored little cardboard, cut out models that would allow large fleet fast and low price.

Who makes these
