Does anybody do gunboats in this scale?Something the French would have on the Niger River for example.

Perhaps in a 3d printed 15mm From the Virtual Armchair General

I had one of his boats at one time but it would be too big I believe.His 28mm's are large and says his boats are 1/48 and I'm looking for 1/72.
Thank you anyway.

I strongly suggest you contact Dan Gurule, owner/operator of the "Last Stand Boatyard." He's a colonial gamer active here on TMP who builds a variety of gunboats in 28mm and also 15mm, and also takes custom orders, so he may be able to build something just for you in 1/72nd scale, which is in between. He's a great guy and a very reliable person to do business with. He's a friend of mine, but I wouldn't recommend him or his boats if they weren't awesome.

Here's a link to his catalogue page:

…and also a direct link to his blog:

…and finally here's just a few pics of his homemade gunboats:

Another recommendation for Dan. I have many of his boats and he has great communication, makes quality boats and is a nice guy,,,,
