OK, so I'm looking at David Manley's splendid little "Splendid Little War" rules, and I see that I can pretty much do the US Navy from the Navwar range. However, Mr Navwar only seems to do a couple of suitable Spanish models. What is a fellow to do for the rest? And before anyone suggests it, yes, I might have tried 1/2400 but all my other ships are 1/3000 and I want to be able to use the ones that overlap. And I'm in the UK and not wildly enthusiastic about WTJ's plastic range, beautiful though they undoubtedly are …

Navwar and WTJ are the only ranges I know about.

Not sure what happened to the old Houston's Ships range – that used to have SAW ships.

The Houston's Ironclads range is theoretically still available from Great Endeavors, but those were 1/1000 scale. There are lots of options in other scales. The OP was specifically seeking options in 1/3000 scale.

Thanks chaps. I've managed to identify a few more suitable ones: Garibaldi for C. Colon, some of the British ABCD destroyers for the Spanish ones, and there's even a liner which was one of the Spanish AMCs (and then a Russian one at Tsushima – see the benefits of keeping in scale!) – but there are still a lot of gaps.
