FIMO ships

Some years ago I constructed a set of ships for my colonial wargames using FIMO. This material comes ready-coloured, and when baked at the right temperature in an oven it welds itself together. It is thus possible to make models that don't need painting.

The following model is a light cruiser.

These are two coastal passenger ships.

This is a coastal gunboat based on the so-called 'flat iron' gunboats used by the Royal Navy. They carried a heavy gun armament and were very manoeuvrable, but were also very slow.

A model of a conventional inshore gunboat armed with light guns and a ram.

Native sailing craft. Their wide decks make them ideal cargo carriers.

I hope to use some or all of this models in my forthcoming Laurania campaign.
