All ships from both sides at Trafalgar - so lots of ships which can be used in KMH scenarios.

Looks interesting. What scale are the ships?

I am told that the 74 Bellerophon measures 54mm from stern to bow - which I guess makes them fairly small although what the scale is I don't know.

Something like the Langton ships I fancy but a great deal cheaper to buy and minutes to make rather not hours.

The images can be scanned or copied however and then reproduced at whatever size is required

Thanks Northman.
Wikipedia says that Bellerophon had a length of 51.2m along the gun deck so that would put the scale at around 1:1000 which is slightly bigger than the 1:1200 Langton ships and way bigger than the 1:2400 I usually play with. Definitely worth looking into.
