Re: You have any Yugoslav navy 1250’s?
Very few models of Yugoslav Navy ships have been made, yet many are available. A contradiction? Well, Wiedling’s Register lists five, four of them pre-WW II, but keep in mind that the bulk of its navy was made up of ex-foreign naval ships. In the case of the pre-1945 navy, these were mostly ex-Austrian, German and Italian ships. So one could assemble a variety of these ships to create a Yugoslav Navy collection.
Argonaut extensively did most of the world’s smaller navies, but the Yugoslav wasn’t one of them, despite the fact that it had some interesting indigenous ships, like the DUBROVNIK and BEOGRAD Class destroyers and ZMAJ. Models of the latter two were produced by Trident and Anker respectively. One can get the cruiser DALMACIJA in the guise of the German NIOBE by Yorck. The model isn’t much changed from how the ship looked in Yugoslav service.
