Langton Miniatures 1/300 Schooner

This is another 1/300 Langton ship model, this time an American schooner with a pivot gun, from the war of 1812. I modified it very slightly by removing the davits and ship's boat from the stern. Not to be wasteful, I added some rowers to the boat and positioned it on the base a bit ahead of the ship. I like what it does for the overall sense of scale.

Langton Miniatures 1/300 Brig

Here are some photos of a 1/300 scale English Brig, a Langton Miniatures kit, from around the time of the War of 1812. I am reluctant to call it finished at this point, as there is still some additional rigging and some weathering effects for the sails that I may eventually undertake. On a project where the intricacy of the detail is one of the chief delights it's difficult to reach a stopping point!
