Hey TMP!

It's been awhile since I did some ships, but recently finished two; A French 80 and a British 74. thought I would share some pics:

French 80:

and the British 74:

These are Langton models, rigged with cotton thread stiffened with glue.

There's a few more pics and exciting commentary on the blog:

I really enjoy making the ships. Hopefully these will see some battle soon.

Nicely done. I love the stern on the French ship.

I think I've spotted a slight error you've made with the French ship. It's still on top of the water…..

There's no way the prize crew could haul down those French flags and replace them with British ones if it were beneath the water.

Seems I posted the same pic twice. Cut and paste mistake. Oh well.

Thanks everyone. Fun comments! 😀

Thanks Jon!
I guess how well they fight will be based on who's playing them.
If it's me, bravely but foolishly. 😀
