Many, many years ago when wargaming was new Slim Mumford converted dozens of the Airfix HMS Victory, built or converted sloops, frigates, merchantmen, gun batteries, boats, harbours and other stuff. The ships all have interchangeable flags so that they can be used by different navies. Masts can be removed to show damage. Signalling is by signal flags and Slim made a code book and flags for the players!
It was a truly magnificent effort and we resurrected them for a battle last Monday evening.
