Further fun cutting and gluing as Spanish and French sloop/corvette options are added to the collection.


Plus work has commenced on the planned inclusion of some 64-gun and 80-gun options modelled on the generic 74-gun model from Warlord.


With careful cutting and application of liquid cement the final model can be fairly straightforward to do.

Those lengthened corvettes came out really nice.

What are you going to do with the stumpy brigs made of the leftovers? grin

PS: I really like those boats hanging off the stern. I'm going to have to do that myself. Did you fabricate those davits, or is that some kind of kit?

Thanks for your comments chaps.

The stumpy brigs are just that, smaller brigs than the 18-gun cruizer type and the davit boats are left overs from other kits. I don't throw spare parts away and keep a box of the leftovers for conversion jobs like this.
