I purchased one of these box-scale fort pencil sharpeners on a whim, and found that Ft. Sumter scaled out to 1/1200 very closely. the fort can be removed from the base by drilling three rivet points.

Yeah I know about the typo.

Yes, I have a couple of them I use with a sailing ship sharpener that I bought on pencilthings.com. Good to know on the 1:1200. Thanks.
