Re: Is Miles Vaughn still selling ship models from AZ?
Where are the pictures you mentioned above? I went through all three (?) of the books and didnít notice them. Just curious, I have two of Mileís ďIJSĒ DDs, and I think the hulls were of popsicle sticks, but I left them as they are, as a representative of a builders make ( and they were just a Warhaming type sample.)
I did, but it was of such a quality that I completely redid it; my publication in 2014 on Naval Anti-Aircraft in WW II has good photos of before and after. That publication is still available at $25. from me.
Robert - Do you have any Miles Vaughn scratch builds? If so, how about a photo or two?
Thank you all for your responses. I am writing a book on ship models and was just curious about whether Miles is still in business, since I have purchased unusual models from him in the past, from his lists. He is certainly a part of the history of small scale ship models.
Miles used to advertise in Sea Classics, but I don't think I've seen it for a few years.

Miles made a lot of wood ships (mostly for wargaming purposes, I think) and also had a pretty active second-hand business. This was mostly before on-line was a thing, and his catalogs were Xeroxed, typed price lists.
Miles Vaughn. Wow, I havenít heard that name for many years. I donít recall, did he sell ship models or books? Itís been too long. Are you thinking of Doug Knowlton, whoís in Tucson?
Does anyone know if Miles Vaughn is still selling ship models via his mailed lists?
