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.
Forgot about this thread until I was sorting out what toys I’m going to be playing with in 2015… Here’s a few pics of TD’s 1/2400th General Apraxin and Idzumo, along with a few tugs, lighters and trawlers (the latter not listed on the site yet I think, but available and, to me suggestive of Otranto Barrage fodder). A few ironclads lurking in the background. The new TD ships are different from the previous fare in that they don’t have bases, are multi-piece and carry more detail (though perhaps not as much as the WTJ equivalents). I’ll be ordering more in the coming year.
Okaaaaay, I’m going to try and and a pic or two here….
