Ok, so maybe you guys over hear on Model Shipwrights already know about this Shapeways store, but I figured I'd pass along what I just learned. He has two stores that might be of interest: USN Store and Royal Navy Store. I wonder which of his Royal Navy figure sets would be good for the 1/144 Flower-class Corvette?

For my money (I have one to do)I would go with

1/144 RN Seamen Duffel Coat Set201

If the budget runs to it perhaps include
1/144 Royal Navy Seamen Set102
1/144 Merchant Navy Set701

Jim,

Thanks for posting this. I may indeed find use for some of those 1/285 figures...

No problem. I was thinking of using some 1/125 scale figures for the Revell R/V Calypso (if I ever build it).
