I bought these from Jack when I was first introduced to him by our mutual friend Stuart Asquith when he still lived in Harrow.
It was a very long time ago and I fell out of love with 54mm gaming only painting one set of crew and they have been in a box for many, many years. Anyway I thought I would share with you another example of Jack's handy work.
The boats/barges themselves are made of card. Jack cast up the machine guns and the sailors come from a range I think he sold to Little Legion but he made them himself.
The roof to the 'steering house' can be removed
and up to 12 figures or equipment can be carried in the hold which also has a removable deck cover.
Jack is 90 this August still making bits and pieces and has just finished gluing together lots of Perry's ACW figures.
