Here is a little scene I created with some GHQ Miniatures 1/2400 scale US warships. The scene is the USS New York as fitted out in WW1, escorted by Cassin Class destroyers, Cassin, Cummings, Downs and Duncan.

I cleaned up and painted the five ships. They are all mounted on a 3"x5" wood base....

Agree this is a very small ship and there is surprising detail there . Well done thanks for sharing these.

I don't know what to think about such tiny models. Tom. But I do think that is a very cool diorama scene you came up with for them.

Thanks guys. The GHQ models are excellent. Tiny but well cast with detail and little or no flash or seams to clean up. Tiny brushes and magnifying glasses are definitely a plus when painting these. The base is simply wood I painted blue and added the white wakes.

I am doing another one soon...with a cool story behind it. Stay tuned!

Tom
