Re: Houston's Ship Models
Rich Houstons partial civil war models can still be purchased thru Stone Mountain Miniatures, however his Foreign Ship line was bought out & for a while was offered. I am not sure who has the molds now, been trying to find out for quite awhile. The scale of the ships varied quite a bit due to the casting process.
Brad Grapper made quite a few of his masters & Rich's casting had problems with shrinkage on different size & shape of each model. they were great for wargaming purposes & I still have mine.
Does anyone know if there is a listing/tally of all the ship models made by the former Houston's Ship Models? I've picked up a few and I've found that although advertised as 1/1200, they really seem to run in the 1/900-1/1100 range.
