OK, I found this gaming project by sheer accident. A bit of background about how I found it. My good friend, Steve H. (CombatColours), is working on a 1/200 scale 1930’s China air war project using Wings of Glory. Most of the planes that he is getting are available through Shapeways. Last night, I had some free time that I jumped on Shapeways to look up some of the drawings of his most recent purchase and day dreaming of flying my lonely Peashooter against a horde of Japanese naval air force fighters when, lo and behold, one of the 1/200 scale airplanes had a “also by this designer” icon of another design that I immediately recognized! Yes, five sets of 1/1250 scale ships for the Cod Wars!
I ordered three of the Cod Wars sets last night: 1 (Link) , 2+ (Link) , & 3 (Link) Two sets, 2 and 2+ are the same sets, but 2+ also has the RN vessel, HMS Exmouth. Even though 3rd set has a HMS Exmouth as well, the RN did deploy more than one Type 14 Blackwood class frigates to the area for the Cod Wars. So I will paint up the second one as the HMS Malcolm. The remaining fifth set is six more fishing trawlers, but since I will have 6 between the three sets I ordered, I don’t think I will need more trawlers.
