American Fleet at Santiago de Cuba, 1898

Following the Spanish fleet display, up next is the American fleet present at the Battle of Santiago Harbor.

Like the Spanish ships, the American fleet is all from the old Houston Ship line of 1/1000 or 1/1100 metal models.

I should work on rebasing the fleet since I have added a few additional ships that require basing.

    1. The Brooklyn is certainly big and handsome! Growing up in Oregon, I am partial to the USS Oregon especially in its pre-war white.

  3. Great work and a fascinating niche to game!

    The last time I played naval minis, I was in my teens. Goodness that was a long time ago.

    1. Thank you, Ray. The naval side was quite one-sided. I don't suppose it was destined to be that way. Perhaps actions on open waters may have helped the Spanish or maybe not...
