    It is great to see the batch construction process in action Julián. You will soon be giving Clipper a run for his money.
    I look forward to seeing the rest of the project come to fruition.

    I absolutely love those ships!

    I love that you have used that colour for the Swedish ships instead of the otherwise so common okra/beige/yellow line. It was common for Swedes to just use varnish.

    Me personally would have chosen to have a 74 or two and then 60-64 gun ships (of the Wasa-class) for the rest of the ships of the line. Sweden preferred ships that could navigate the archipelago and the 64 gun ships built by Chapman was a great stable gun platform, unusually heavily armed, and with a shallow draft.

    Indeed, that was the logical thing, but my client wanted the fleet as we see it. The only addition I made was a ship of 110 guns and another one of 80 guns, the rest of boats are between Russian captured and Swedish.

    I glad you like them

    Best regards,
    Julián
