Perhaps drawing inspiration from the Beach Boys classic, Waltersons showed off the new and improved packaging for their relaunched 1:700 sale warships series. Besides opening differently, making it far more easier to remove from its outer box, the new design features a wave-like blister in which the warship sits, which will differ markedly from ship-to-ship to signify the changes in wakes formed by each warship as it passes through the surf.
Look for the first squadron of warships to set sail later this winter. We are still awaiting pricing and dates of availability for some of the new toolings announced earlier this month.
In related news, the Company also posted several images of the new display stand being developed for each warship. Each ship will sit atop twin diecast metal pillars, that will be finished in chrome rather than gold, and attached to a wood-like display plinth, thereby making them much more attractive as potential conversation pieces on desks and credenzas.
