Convoy Models – DH Models – The ‘L’ (Liner) series

I’m pleased to report that, after many delays and tribulations, the long-awaited reissue, by Dave Hampson (DH Models), of the Len Jordan/WMS range is underway. The following are now available and are available from me direct or at the ‘Ship Shows’ at Lincoln & Liverpool. Tim Hudson (Convoy Models: convoy@photrek.co.uk)

The ‘L’ (Liner) series comprises models of passenger and passenger-cargo liners dating from 1900 to 1975. The majority of ships are UK flagged, but there are a number from other countries. The models are kits in white resin and are to 1/1200 scale (1″ = 100′) which is the ‘traditional’ UK (‘Imperial’) scale (rather than the more commonly used 1/1250 scale (which is the International Ship Recognition Scale) – for vessels of this size the two are widely regarded as compatible). Construction of the models is simple as the models are mainly ‘one-piece’ mouldings which require little preparation beyond cleaning. The models can then be painted to your satisfaction. I regret I am not able to offer a painting service but I can suggest people who may be able to help.
At the moment supply of the models is limited but hopefully more & more models in this excellent range will be back in production shortly. Please feel free to enquire regarding the availability of individual ships. (Updated 15/04/2024)

All models listed on these pages can be obtained directly from Tim Hudson by mail, or at the ‘Ship Shows’ and other events that he visits (or even by calling personally). Prices listed are in GBP Sterling, and exclude a contribution towards postage & packing. Payment may be made by a number of means: Paypal, BACS (or similar), cash, or a personal cheque drawn in GBP on a UK bank. Regrettably I’m not able to accept payment by Credit or Debit Card. Due to increasing delays within the banking system BACS is prefered.
Models in stock are shown by a red (X). This page was last updated on 15th April, 2024
