    Can anyone point me to a source for anchor chains in 1/200, 1/250, & 1/300 scales.:confused:

    I currently have a Maly Bismarck in the works and have an Essex and three Russian Vessels in the rapidly growing archives.

    Thanks in advance.

    I get my chain at a doll house supply stores and or low budget jewlery outlets at the mall.

    There is no need for scale since different ships have different chain size do to there differing anchors. Just get cheap light weight fine jewlery chains and eyeball it for scale. There are plenty of sizes to choose from.

    Yeah, I was going to suggest the same thing. Those inexpensive jewelry stores have a lot of different size chains that can be used for many different applications in modeling. :)

    If the jewelry/craft store option fails, you can order chain on-line from Model

    Check the jewelry section of stores like Michaels, Roberts, or Ben Franklins. They usually have packets of chain in about three foot lengths. I think I've seen it at Squadron Hobbies online store.
