I have finished the Brazilian ships now for the Battle of Riachuelo. These are 1:1200 scale ships from Pithead Miniatures. They were fun to assemble, paint and base. The only problem with them was all the bowsprits were broken. I had to use whatever tools I had a around to remove them and then replace them with brass wire. Not a problem, I had everything I needed to fix that.
Now I have to work on the river layout and try out rules. The plan is to use Iron and Fire by Dave Manley. I have used the rules before for ACW naval.
