Pre-Dreadnought Sale

The world of 1/2400 scale pre-dreadnoughts has finally grown complete enough, so I've decided to part with my large 1/3000 pre-dreadnought collection. Email me if you're interested in all or part of it.

I acquired this collection at flea markets, pretty much as is. I contributed only some sorting and labeling, none of the painting. Most of the castings seem to be Navwar, some are Davco, but I can't tell you which are which. None of the ships are by WTJ. Also, this collection is entirely composed of major vessels, from cruisers on up; there is not a single destroyer (or smaller) in this collection. Note: this collection used to include Italian, Austro-Hungarian, Russian, Japanese and US fleets and some miscellaneous merchants and leftovers, but those all sold separately.

The UK fleet has a huge majority of the major ships (cruiser and up) used in the era 1890-1905. Only 2 are painted, but all except a tiny handful are glued to an ID card indicating the name and type.

Shipping within the US only (sorry, international is just too expensive and hard to deal with). I'm offering each fleet for sale separately, but if you take both fleets, I'll ship them all for free.
