That steamer looks great, but what I really want is the gorilla. He’s not on your website.

Ordered this morning along with a few Pulp Miniature packs for crew.

I've been really wanting an affordable and good looking tramp (steamer that is!) for years and this one looks like it'll really fit the bill!

Yesterday, I finished painting (and rigging) the Tramp Steamer.







I've also added lots of extra details like instruments, wheel, telegraphs and chart table for the bridge, derricks and Nav lights.

There are lots more photos of the ship both painted and unpainted @ http://wargamesbuildings.co.uk/Tramp-Steam-28mm-scale

Who was it, again, that had a minis set with a not-Allan?

EDIT:

Hinterland, found it!

I'm mulling over the idea of adding a pack of miniatures to our Classic Movies Range to go with our Tramp Steamer kit. Just need to think off some movies that feature a Tramp Steamer.

Has any one got any suggestions?

Sally 4th Tramp Steamer: Lee Shepard has just sent us this lovely picture of the  “Maria Rosaria” out of Valletta (because his  wife is Maltese). Always good to see what people have done with our kits.
