Scratch Built Pre-Dreadnought

Hi all

I decided to try my hand at scratchbuilding some toy ships. My first project has been a pre-dreadnought. It is not representing any historical type but I tried to get the general lines.

The ship is made from balsa wood, the gun turrets are from pens, the gun barrels and straight masts from 25mm Perry miniatures pikes and the top masts are from GW sprues.

I like it. It measures 5 inches in length and about 1.5 inches width. I will use it either with pre-dread rules and with Dystopian Wars.
