    MODELING RECOMMENDATIONS: I'd just use SGN110 Portland for everything back to 1747 Assistance. Experiment, Grampus, Trusty and Antelope I'm not sure.

    Some of those may well be of use to me as I complete the 50 gun ships in the history thread DB.
    Thanks. Rob.
    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Right now, my gut says Portland works for everything except Grampus (could maybe pass with a new sternboard) and the Experiments, including Antelope. I'd need to check stats, but I'm wondering if Experiment couldn't be slipstreamed into a Roebuck 44. What say ye about these additions to the Reprint Pool, shipmates?

    I'm in favour. As we said before at this scale who except an expert will know. Also we are most likly to get a sculpt which covers the maximum ground ands if the odd sternboard needs a bit of the Rod Langton treatment I'm sure we can cope with that.

    In this case Grampus and the Experiments are enclosed, all others open with varying degrees of "porch overhang." I could probably add the smaller 1741 Est 50's which Experiment was a throwback to the dimensions of into this chart, but IIRC none made it to even the AWI.
