Read This

This site is devoted to collecting and building 1:1200/1250 scale ship models.  It is part of the SteelNavy site but has its own set of menus and navigation buttons. Paul Jacobs edits this portion of the Warship site. He has been building and collecting 1:1200/1250 scale ships for over 40 years and writes for both Plastic Ship Modeler and Waterline International.  Inquiries and article submissions should be directed to Paul at The site is under development, hence the occasional sooncome.gif (1024 bytes) sign.  Ship modelers new to this scale should start by reading Paul's introductory articles in the 1250 World section.  Then take a look at the 1250 Scale Producers' Gallery  for a sampling of currently available models.  Updates to this portion of the Warship site will be listed on the 1250 What's New page, accessible by clicking the red What's New button above.
