The Cod Wars

Someone sent me a message via the Shapeways website a few months ago, asking if I’d like to make some models to go with a set of wargame rules for the Cod Wars (actually written by someone I had previously come across on the Wings of War forums.)

I can vaguely remember this from my childhood (history here) The relationship between the UK and Iceland got quite frosty.
There are also a few good videos on youtube that give a good impression of what was happening at the time.

I like a challenge and it sounded vaguely interesting.

So, after a bit of research, I made a few 1/1250 scale models.

With the ships being quite small (5-6cm long) and the Frosted Ultra Detail material being quite expensive I decided to cut down the handling fee shapeways charge for each model by combining 6 into a single “print”.

This gave us a British tug, 3 trawlers and a couple of Icelandic Gun boats, Tyr and Baldur
