Who did the …Yard models? They were very good

Those would be mine- Bay Area Yards. Still have a few of the items available, but most are no longer available. Now on Facebook, as opposed to a proper website. It's nice to see an occasional BAY mini in a game along with Thoroughbred, Peter Pigs, Shapeways, and all the others. Ironclad and ACW gaming is still with us.

I have a Bay Area Yards rendition of Shenandoah. It's warped. All of my other ships are Thoroughbreds and have never had a problem with them. They are simply beautiful models.

Unfortunately, resin can warp far more often than metal. Never seen any metal thoroughbred minis that had any warpage at all. speaks well for their quality.

Sad to hear about your range, Scafcom1. I only have BAY ironclads (and some of Squirmydads papercrafts).
