Hello mates, I leave some photos of my latest works for my Spanish fleet for the game Black Seas.
The boats that I have made for now are:
A frigate
A brig.
An Xebec.
A 3th rate of 74 guns. San Justo

All ships with the exception of Xebec are from Warlord Games. The Xebec is a brand called Hagen miniatures and makes smaller ships quite similar to those of Warlord Games but in metal.

Sails and masts are made by me.
The ratlines are made of nickle silver from a Polish company named Mikrostocznia.

I hope you like them.

Very nice, especially love the xebec. Are you going to name it Cacafego?

ModelJShip07 Dec 2019 9:56 a.m. PST

Would be Cagafuego, and not, this name is for a ship of year 1620 and it was not a Xebec, was a Spanish Galleon.

I see the xebec is hoisting a merchant ensign (or so it seems at a distance). Is she a privateer?

ModelJShip09 Dec 2019 7:50 a.m. PST

When the merchant ensign had the shield of Spain, then, it means that it has "Patente de Corso" (Letter of marque).

I would like in the future to acquire more vessels of this type and make a small fleet of Algerian pirates.
