Does anyone know of a source for parts that can be used to fix up 1:1200/1250 ships. Alnavco doesn't supply theirs anymore and H&R is long out of business. I am in need of small guns, catapults, cranes, etc. Many of my models have been in storage for several years, and were used for wargaming back in the 1970s. They now look a bit rough. I was thinking of fixing them up and selling some them off since I don't have a good place to store or display them.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Maybe photoetched parts? Tom's has a few sets for US ships: http://www.tomsmodelworks.com/catalog/i ... Path=23_36

Thanks! That's a start. Still need guns, particularly AA mounts. May buy some of the Lindberg re-pops of the old Pyros. Not terribly accurate, but better than nothing.

Martin Brown at http://waterline-ships.com/ has a large selection of 1/1200-1250 parts and accessories.
