The transition from metal castings to 3Dprinted resin continues for the original 28mm naval guns and fittings from the late Richard Houston. Several replacement weapons have been added to the range, far superior to the old castings, as you can see.

24-pounder Hales Rocket with Gunwale Mount

Asian Jingals with Gunwale Mounts

Chinese/Tibetan Heavy Jingal on Tripod Mount

And, many replacement and altogether new items have been added to the range of ship's fittings, too.

Watertight Deck Hatch

Power Winch

3-Pipe Ship's Horn

Among the items the range never offered before are four different types of ship's navigation lamps: a large and small pair of oil burners for the 19th Century, and large and small versions of 20th Century electrics. Now you can add Red for Port and Green for Starboard running lights to your bridges/wheelhouses for most any vessel.

Large Oil Lamps

Small Electric Lamps

New cabin doors, deck hatches, and vertical ladders have joined the mix, making TVAG's by far the largest and most affordable source for ship and gunboat scratchbuilders to provide your own models for Pulp and/or Colonial-era games.
