Jack Alexander - Colonial Gunboat







Jack Alexander is the man behind the Jacklex ranges, and also designed the Miltra 1/72 WW11 figures for Bish Iwaszko. Jack's wargaming is still going strong and through Alan I have some pictures for you of his modelling skills, here with his colonial gunboat, followed by a steam launch, and an American Civil War Colonial house. Please note that these are private modelling projects, and are not available commercially or for sale. I have always had a particularly soft spot for Jack's colonial figures and I hope others will also be specially pleased to see these pictures.

I knew Jack very well back in the day. I still remember a battle with his Franco-Prussian war armies at the Garrison wargames club where Jack’s Prussian cavalry was practically wiped-out in seconds flat because a photographer from Miniature Warfare wanted a shot of the cavalry charging through a small ravine.

He is one of life’s good guys without a doubt. Knowing I had a sizeable ACW set up, he used to always slip me some of his “new” ACW figures pre-release – and they were ace! Good to see he’s still “soldiering on”.

You are a bad man Clive - you've got me browsing the Jacklex lists at Spencer Smith. Lovely models, any more to come?

Hi Clive

Great blog...I love the pictures of the Gun Boat too.

I bought my first Jaclex figures a few years ago and have now only just managed to get them finished...

Have a look at the link
