So, sinking the vessel was purely pyrrhic...

Well, I imagine the curtailing of patrols is a partial victory, at that.

I would have liked to hear how the Lady did in her particular tussle, though.

PS Lest it be mistaken, my keen interest in the battle is all up to your sterling reporting, of course.  ;)

Looks like it was lots of fun.

Where did you get the Tong’s flagship (junk)?  Thanks.

Looks a lot like 'puzzle kits' I've seen on eBay, usally shipped from China.

Sunjester, I want to hear more about the gunboat, as I assume you put it together from scratch. Do you have a build page on it?

Still love looking at the battle again.

I believe the junk came from Sarissa (it's not my model).

The gunboat and launch came from this chap on Ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/actualsizeminiatures?_trksid=p2047675.m3561.l2559
who sells a lot of useful naval bits.

Thanks so much!

Alas, between fear of shippage to our side of briny, as well as the large number of terribly 'shiny' items to scroll through, I may never find the answer in either case, much less than follow through to purchase.  :o

Dan,  your on your own. ;)

Edit: Okay, couldn't stop scrolling Sarissa; here's A kit for a junk. https://sarissa-precision.com/collections/28mm/products/chinese-junk-28mm

Looks simple enough.  Even I could assemble that, with my fat and shaky hands.

Thanks, you’re the best.

Dan
