BP Laser sells a brigantine ship in 28mm and a set of cannons on the same scale.

KJoe: It would work as a container ship.

So why don't you get a laser cutter and show them how it's done correctly?

Murphy, it's a ligit criticism, no worse than criticizing a figs' sculpt for out of proportion details or errors. I think your remarks characterizing Kjoe in a poor light are uncalled for.

Its for wargaming. The price is right.

100% accurate ships for wargaming in 28mm can be made. But one will PAY for them. And they still will need to have
compromises in the interest of gaming- like limited

Glad you like it my friend!.

KJoe, if you look closely, there is a slight curve near the waterline. That said, it IS a slab-sided ship. The problem is making an accurate model on a laser cutter that fits in with the price-point that people will pay for.
