1:2400 scratch-built First Balkan War fleets

The First Balkan War naval project is in full gear with all the capital ships completed. All have been scratch built using PVC modelling sheet and tube.

The fleets represent those engaged at the Battle of Elli or İmroz Deniz Muharebesi (Battle of the Dardanelles) that took place on 16 December 1912.

The battle was the largest navel battle of the First balkan war and saw the Hellenic flagship - Georgios Averof - almost single-handedly drive off the Ottoman fleet.

Here are a few pictures of the capital ships for the Ottomans and the Greeks.




The Hellenic Aetos Class Destroyers underway.
Thanks for looking.

    1. Thanks Chris, appreciate it. I'm really pleased with the result. What I like is they are of a level of finish that they fit in with my others. Destroyers this week then to do some gaming with them!! Thanks for your comment. Alan
