Lately on Kijiji I found an ad for a bunch of 1/2400 warships. I asked the owner to send me a list and at first glance it seemed quite substantial, so I made an offer. But when the box arrived, I felt its weight and I knew the content was going to be awesome.
There is enough WW1 ships to make the Home Fleet and the High Seas Fleet. There is also a good core of pre-dreadnought ships to have a downsized battle of Tsushima. The rest is made of WW2 battleships and there are some 1/1200 ships as well.
Here is a "sub-box" full of C-in-C goodies. Some of the ships are in pure lead.
For comparison, here are side by side a 1/2400 battleship, a 1/1200 sail ship (74 guns) and a 1/1200 battleship (Lion). It's just mind boggling how big warships have become with time.
But before I start playing with my new ships, I have to finish my little Russians. Better get at it.
