GREAT LAKES WARSHIPS Scale 1:1200

BACKGROUND INFORMATION & RECOMMENDED READING.

glakes2.jpg (49421 bytes)
Left: Sloop (Ref: GL5).  Right: 10 gun Schooner (Ref: GL2). 

With this series, we cover the various periods of hostilities in North America. The dates in service are shown alongside each model reference, for your information.

Where vessels were rowed as well as sailed on a regular basis, we have supplied a set of oar banks (port and starboard). The wargamer can have the model fully rigged, then at a stage in the game where he/she changes to oars, can simply fit the oarbanks. At this time the sails will be declared 'let fly', 'used in conjunction with the oars', or 'furled' for game purposes.

An important feature is that most of the vessels were used by both sides of the conflict. In the list that follows, only the exceptions are noted.

The hull, masts and bowsprits are in white metal; sails are in photo etched brass. With the sail setting 'easy sail with courses furled', the set sails are brass and the furled courses are white metal.
