HMS Surprise – 28mm Napoleonic Ship

My next project is going to be 28mm Napoleonic naval battles. I think I’ll stick to Frigate or smaller actions, but who knows…

This is my first ship, from Old Modern Handcrafts. I believe they are made in Vietnam and imported. This is T191 and is 1:58 scale.

The model needed the base of its hull cut off and I’ve taken some photos of that process below.
