My port area of my layout features a number of vessels that are close to but not 1/160. To adapt them was fairly simple in that I either enlarged things like portholes and hatchways or in some cases shrunk them and the results have been very satisfactory. In some cases I bought the kit just for the hull and severely modified the deck structures or built my own. Only one vessel was an actual 1/160 scale, the ocean research vessel while the tugs and most of the fishing fleet are Japanese 1/150 vessels. I recently bought a steam powered sailing vessel that is 1/124 and realized that that vessel would go very well as a medium sized merchant vessel for a civil war era layout or a layout set in the 1890s to about 1910 or even a little after. I bought the Revelle kit of the USS Harriet Lane, a revenue cutter that saw service from the 1830's to about 1880. The whole vessel on measures out to 19 inches long so would look good on a small wharf scene on a civil war ear layout or a later era. 000_0971-2 by John Moore posted Jul 8, 2019 at 12:07 PM The vessel can pretty much be used as is just place some N scale deckhands on the deck. It is a full hull but I handle that by cutting a shallow recess in the bench work and then casting water around it.
