As part of my current Sudan project I was looking for some watercraft – specifically Arabian Dhows

Managed to source these from Russia and they work really well with 28mm

Very nice.

Excellent find!

PS. They seem to have stuff in HO scale too, which might be of interest to 15mm gamers.

It says, no Need for glue or scissors?

Nice paper model! Unless I'm missing something it looks like there isn't a 15mm/HO version of that particular kit.

They work well with 28mm. I've got one of their cogs and it looks great with my Lion Rampant stuff.

It takes about 20-30 minutes for the Dhow. Most of it is the rigging.

Hi Eric,

I contacted you as "Houdin" my google account name. I have the Redoubt paddle steamer plus a load of other Sudan stuff going for a "fellow gamer" rate. How can I contact you?
