"USS Adrian Benson" is an exploratory submarine suitable for any Victorian SciFi, Pulp Fiction, or Fantasy/SF game. But there is more to it:

Adrian Benson is a retired submariner in the United States Navy.  He co-hosted the Wargaming Recon podcast.  During his time on the show he appeared in a decade worth of episodes on topics ranging from mental health to naval wargaming.
Tragically he is loosing his fight with cancer at the age of 55.  He will leave behind a wife, daughter, son, and grandson.  His love for tabletop gaming inspired thousands of gamers across the globe.


To keep his spirit alive and remind us of him everytime we are enjoying a game in this kind of setting I created this submarine kit bearing his name.
For each kit sold, $10 will be donated to cancer research.

Farewell, Adrian!

That is a splendid tribute to a man lost to cancer much too young. I applaud your gesture, and I hope this kit will grace many VSF tables.
Operating from an abandoned US spy base somewhere in the Australian outback, Miniature Martin produces games and scale miniatures set in parallel worlds, past and future. He is NOT trying to take over the Earth. This time.
