Convoy Models – Second-hand models (& some new stuff, too)

This was a ‘temporary’ page put on prior to the July 2006 Welton show, but it seems to be a permanent fixture . Hopefully it gives an idea of some of the second-hand models that I have in stock at the moment. I have shown a ‘condition’ for many of the models. This is obviously ‘subjective’, but I would hope is fair. (I am leaving a number of sold items on pro tem as indication of some of the other material that passes through my hands). The list  was last updated on 13th September 2020.  Items in stock at  the moment are shown by a bold (X).

The models on this page are to the scale of 1/1200 or 1/1250 (1″ = 100′: the international ship recognition scale)

All models listed on this 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. Payment may be made by a number of means: Paypal, Bank Transfer, 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.

For further details contact Tim Hudson: convoy [at] photrek.co.uk  or  directly by  telephone 01522 524672 (Overseas dialling: 00 44 1522 524672)
