"In 1884 American inventor Frank Stockburn invented a machine that generated a power opposite to that of gravity. His machine, called the Negative Gravity Screw was used to make the first Aeronef. History changed from that date..."

MINIATURES:

All miniatures are supplied UNPAINTED and not recommended for children under 14.

The Wessex Games Aeronef 1/1200th scale miniatures line provides vessels for many of the aeronaval forces on Earth, Mars and Venus. Most nations supply vessels to their allies, so it is not uncommon to see French built craft in Russian service of British aeronef in the American and Japanese aeronavies.
