I guess that’ll be the case for quite a few people, and in that respect it’s perhaps a strange choice to kick off a new range. Then again, I suppose it’s the big seller in this period.
I’d like to see some Sino-Japanese and Spanish-American war ships, plus a few Turkish and Russian ironclads in the Victorian range wouldn’t go amiss! Despite the difference in price, I’ve been won over by the slightly chunkier 1/2400 for this period, cf. 1/3000.
