1/3000th Modern Chilean Navy

Here's the 1/3000th scale Chilean fleet ready for painting, as half of my second modern naval project this year. I could add a third Type 23 but other than that it's pretty much all there. The aircraft include seven AS532 Cougar helicopters and four F-16's fighters, the former for ASW and to equip the LPD, with the latter for anti-shipping strikes and top cover. The Chileans can fit their Cougars with AM-39 Exocets as well, so they can also be tasked with stand off, anti-shipping missions, making them doubly useful. I'm planning to get started on these at the weekend.

  1. That’s a interesting OOB. The availability of Cougars and Saar 4 had passed me by.

    1. I can’t find the Saar’s In 1:3000. Where did you get them?

    2. They're actually Iranian Kamen class FAC's but similar to the Sa'ar 4 in 1/3000th

  2. If I turn the clock back a bit I can also include a couple of Jacob van Heemskerck frigates...

  4. When I used to scour James FS in the library during the 80's, I always fancied the Peruvian ship "Aguire" later called " Almirante Grau". In service (just about) until 1999...A bit too early?
