Avery neat build by PeteW from earlier this year.

The model in this instance was the 1/1200 28 gun “at quarters” British Frigate from Langton models. The “kit” itself is very simple comprising of only 2 parts – the hull, and stern gallery. Sails have to be purchased separately either as white metal or etched brass. The latter come with three masts plus the bowsprit, while for the former the sails and masts are cast together. A choice of sails is available providing a range of settings. Brass ratlines specific to the model can also be purchased.
The frigate hull length is about 3.5cm (1.5 inch), with an overall length of about 6 cm (2.25 inch) and height of model is about 4.5cm (2.5 inch).

The model is a Sails of Glory Proserpine that has been converted to represent the Swedish 44 gun ship. The stern gallery is made from scratch using plasticard and so is the poopdeck. The standing rig has been made by synthetic sewing thread.

Beautiful! The gilded pointy stern gallery came out great, and that red line along the stern part makes the ship.

I remember that link Jonas.
Thanks for the reminder of how you inspired me to do my HEIC Frigate.
