THE 'OCEANIC' SERIES OF SHIP MODELS BY MR F G SKINNER

 

This was, as will be seen from the following lists, an extensive range of 1/1250 scale ship models of many countries and periods, produced by Mr F G Skinner of Torquay, England. Supply could be a little problematical and quality, too, could be variable, but the extensive list contained many lesser known ship classes (Royal Navy enthusiasts will note such 'delicacies' as 'Crystal' [stationary experimental vessel], 'Matapan' [Sonar Trials Vessel], and 'Mermaid' [ex-Ghanaian 'frigate'], as well as the various 'Yard Craft'), and the models were ideal for wargaming or for those who collect the ships of particular navies. Some of the Royal Navy auxiliary types were good, and are still sought after. (An example of these one of these is 'HMS Girdle Ness' - a Guided Missile Trials ship). A number of secondhand RN models appeared in the catalogue of a major supplier a year or two ago and were soon snapped up.
A number of items appeared on eBay in February 2007 and some went for prices that might not have been imagined. Amongst them were HMSs 'Girdle Ness' (180), 'Hartland Point' (179), & 'Vidal' (125), as well as the RFAs 'Reliant' (208) & 'Retainer' (209).
The lists that follow are based on 'List 8', which was issued in (approximately) 1992 or 1993. Readers should note the eclectic numbering system used. Prices are as given; in some cases the price has been crossed out. Where this has happened the 'price box' has been 'greyed out'; if the price is visible it has been given under the grey.
There has been some discussion as to whether or not these models are to 1/1200 or 1/1250 scale. In List No.8, from which the following are abstracted, the scale is shown as '1/1250' - please see the scan

There are a number of sublists and these are given on the following separate pages:
