I took a break from my American fleet to build another French ship of the line. This is the GHQ version of a Téméraire class 74 gun ship Le Fouguex.

Very nice work!

Awesome work Vol, beautifully done! Is the color scheme of your own devising or drawn from a picture? Very interesting look.

A combination between a painting and one of Rod's examples in his rigging book, and my youngest daughter's interpretation of the colors. Brown ochre, red, and field blue.

I love her. Thanks for showing me how poor my ships are. You make me try harder, which is good. You give me a high-bar too get over. I can smell the tar and paint with a little sea-salt.

Couldn't comment on this when it first came up…

Very pretty Frenchie you got there!

Love the asymmetrical studding sail configuration, but wonder how they fare "in close quarters" on the tabletop.

Unfortunately, Vol's account has been locked so he can't respond to any comments.

I would be happy to pass on anything to Vol that comes up here. I would think that in life they would shorten sail before going into action. I have a number of models with different sail-settings, but do not change the model if we change sail-setting in the game. I would love the idea of having a number of "Frigates" with different sail-settings and change the model as one changes the sails. This would work for a ship duel game. Expensive but very nice.
