Holidays offer unexpected opportunities. Sometimes you come across the most sumptuous of things in the most unexpected places, like a haberdashery shop. Along with the cotton reels and needles there were hundreds(?) of ex-magazine (Del Prado?) miniatures - mostly planes and Sci-Fi machines. However these pocket battleships caught my eye (see below):
I have a couple of County Class WWII British cruisers courtesy of the Airfix 1/1200 "Sink the Bismarck" set but I could do with a couple of Leander light cruisers! The scale .. well it will do for me as 1/1200 ;)
Alternatively, these two and the KM Scharnhorst against HMS Hood and perhaps HMS Suffolk! Fletcher Pratt beckons!
