collaboration with Master Builders Richard Houston and Chris Ferree, TVAG presents
this line of inexpensive self assembly, full color, card
stock ship models in 25mm scale. The initial release includes 6 models in 28mm scale, and each will be duplicated in 15mm
Richard Houston's 30+ years experience of ship modeling have allowed him to create authentic designs which are now "reproducible"
for far less cost than his hand-made, wooden and metal Houston's Ships.
As builder, all you need
provide are Crew, Armaments, and such Ship's Fittings as you like.
All these River Gunboat designs (with more to come) are specifically designed
for the popular rules set Boilers And Breechloaders,
but will fight just as well with other rules.
New Gunboat designs already in development will include versions of
Side-Wheelers, and Screw Driven types.
Self-assembly is the most affordable and easiest way to add an
amphibious element to your Colonial and Pulp War Games, requiring only glue, scissors, and foam core or heavy matte board for bracing. All models have
been designed to carry full complements of Crew and Armaments through any number of battles. With the photographic textures added by
TVAG to Richard's original designs, no painting is required.
NOTE: All photos on this and the related page are of prototype
designs. The products for sale may vary in small details or colors, any differences representing improvements over the models shown.
