Jack Alexander - Junks and Korean warships
A very welcome "junk e-mail" arrived today with these pictures of Jack Alexander's junks and Korean warships, based on illustrations from the Osprey book. Jack made an original and then cast each of the 'spikes' on the Korean Turtle ship and made the small guns for the other Korean ships. So that the Junks can be used across a wide period, he also made 'oar' sections to slip over the gun ports.
I think these pictures are truly remarkable, thanks to Alan for sending the pictures and to Jack Alexander for agreeing to their posting.
