Title: Finally found a use for those left over Napoleonic naval ships
Post by: Moggy on November 28, 2020, 03:10:05 PM
Yep,

Simply file off the detail on the sides and fill in the top to hide what it is and there you have it...... Instant river barges. And no mucking about with awful masts/sails/

I am even going to make a raft over the tops of 2 frigates to make fire rafts.

Will post some piccies once done

BTW I have left over ships because I tend to buy job lots from Ebay. Some are battered or missing masts or really badly painted (even by my standards)

Cheers

That sounds like a cunning plan, Derek 

Do please share photos of your reincarnated Napoleonic ships!

Some quick barges just waiting to be either towed or sunk and some (unlit) fire-rafts .

About 2 hours work. I like repurposing stuff. Gives me an excuse to give to the wife about all the odds and ends I keep from other stuff.

Cheers
