Freighter SS Minos under tropical skys

Freighter SS  Minos

1/64 Scale for 28mm figures   Kit

It was all so romantic; a Chinese junk silhouetted against the orange glow as the sun sank into the South China Sea. But now the First Officer of the Minos vainly searched the darkening horizon for some clue to the location of the mysterious junk. She was running without lights. A bad sign, in these waters. It was a Pirate’s moon - pitch black, only a few stars to light their way.

 Lieutenant Dirk Bogart lowered his binoculars. He stood on the bridge wing of the Tramp Steamer. The lantern of the running light glowed red just below his elbow. The junk’s crew would have no trouble locating the Minos though the night be ever so dark. Dirk slid the door open and stepped into the wheelhouse. The helmsman stood quietly at his post. Captain Cameron was bent over the chart table, dividers in hand.

 When he heard Dirk’s report of the mysterious craft, the Captain laid down his navigating tools and drew a brass key from his jacket pocket. He handed the key to his First Officer. "Open the arms locker and arm the crew. Bring me the Thompson, and the 50 round drum. Double the watch."

 Can you defend the Tramp Steamer Minos against the Chinese Pirates? Can your Chinese Pirates get rich by capturing the "Round Eye" ship? What about that mysterious cargo?

 Why is that strange freighter lying at anchor off the coast of Zimbowie? Could gun smugglers be off-loading dangerous cargo for the Sultan’s rebellion against the Empire?

 Or could it be the German Auxiliary Cruiser Mowie, just waiting for some nosy Royal Navy patrol boat to get in range of its hidden 6" guns?

 This Tramp Steamer will suggest hundreds of exciting scenarios for your Colonial Wars, World War One, and Adventure Games. Designed to be small enough to fit on the game table, yet large enough to be impressive -to allow a small army on its decks.  Completed size 25x5.25x13 inches.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
