Yesterday we had already mentioned that small is “hot”. A series of SCHOWANEK metal ships in scale 1/1250 is coming up for auction. This manufacturer is wellknown since he produced a massive fleet of civilian and military ships.
SCHOWANEK was not the first with his “waterline” models. Already from about 1932 WIKING Modellbau (Germany / Berlin) offered metal ships in this size.
Although it is rather “static” you can create an impressive diorama with those little ships, complete with all the accessorieslike the quais, lighthouse etc. Feel the breeze in your hair and smell the sea!
