Convoy Models – DH Models – The ‘M’ (Merchant) series

The ‘M’ (Merchant) series comprises models of cargo-passenger liners and dry cargo freighters (‘tramps’) dating from 1910 to 1990. (There are a number of ‘specials’ amongst them). 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’) ‘Ship Recognition Scale’ (rather than the more commonly used 1/1250 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 this exellent range will be back in production shortly.

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. This page was last updated on 4th May 2020. Models in stock are marked by a bold (X)
