Has anyone purchased the E or S boat or Fairmile from H&R? I saw that they were making these in 1/300 about a year ago in a WI magazine. Was wondering about using them in Cruel Seas.

Also, for crew, could I use H&R artillery crew? I'm sure the various coastal forces wore helmets when going into action but not sure if they wore specific naval uniforms.

thanks

No idea, Bob, but I love the thought of having crew on naval wargaming boats – sort of brings it to life!

Love to see some photos if you do get some and paint them up.

I just ordered three 1/300 coastal boats from H&R. My order was much larger until the 40% postage to the US clicked in. Wow!

Elsewhere on TMP is a photo of a 1/300 scratch-built with crew from Langton. I cannot find these figures on the Langton site.

We may have to wait until Warlord sells them separately.

I have the old H&R Vosper and S-Boote as well as two plastic models that came with the latest Wargames Illustrated magazine. The H&R is slightly shorter though is also an earlier version of the Schnellboote. So it may be appropriate. Hadn't thought about adding crew. Have to go dig through my gubbins box.

Heroics and Ros are advertised on their web site as 1/600 scale, half the size of Warlord's boats.

4D, they have two ranges, one is 1/300 the other, much larger range in 1/600 – the former Skytrex range

@Virtual… -- Thanks. I saw those figs but they were Napoleonic. I wasn't sure if there were WWII crew somewhere else.

Re: Heroics & Ros --
In their web shop:
"Coastal Forces 1/600th Naval Range" are indeed 1/600, matching those from PT Dockyard
"Landing Craft & Ships" are the old Skytrex 1/300 and match boats in Warlord's Cruel Seas

Q#1: I found some old Navwar coastal boats. The product numbers are the same as H&R/Skytrex. Are Akytrex old Navwar (or vice versa)?

Q#2: Does anyone have reference to old Navwar product info and can identify these packs -- NT-140 (gun and crew); NTP-25 (guns); NTP-22 (guns); B-46 (guns).

Thanks

Q1 – Navwar boats are now H&R.

1/600th Skytrex are now sold by H&R too.

Can't help with Q2.

@ Schgun: indeed, I wouldn't have found those in a month of Sundays.

@shogun, at 1/300 a lot of the Napoleonic crews pass for whatever you want them to be. :) The ones on my picture are select napoleonics.
