1/1200th Napoleonic Coastal Fort

I found this in an aquarium gift shop yesterday. I reckon it's about 1/1200th scale or thereabouts but could possibly be used for 1/600th scale too, with a little imagination.

The real one is off the port of Morlaix on the north coast of Brittany and was built in the sixteenth century then re-modelled by Vauban in the seventeenth:

Unfortunately, one of the sprogs dropped it and broke one end off but I fixed it with superglue. I'll have to re-model the base anyway to get rid of the wave effect and title so it's nit a problem.

  1. Now that is a nice find! I'm glad your family is so tolerant of you turning a holiday into a surreptitious wargaming acquisition project. :-)
