Here is my painted up Langton Miniatures model of HMS Prince, built in 1670 a one hundred gun 1st rate and during the Third Anglo Dutch War served as the flagship of The Lord High Admiral The Duke of York.



A bit of chat and a few more photos here:

Only twenty more to go!

That is very nice. Man those lower gun positions are close to the waterline though.

Your model is 1st Rate too!

Very nice work!

Thanks fellas, I thought that about the guns too but I wouldn't question Langton, must be the way it was!

I believe the Vasa had a similar problem.

She's heading down into a wave. Look at the stern.

Gorgeous work! That era of ships is so colorful and aesthetically pleasing. You've done a great job of depicting that in your miniature!

Thanks again lads, this particular period does indeed produce some beautiful model ships, everyone loves gold and big flags!

The guns are fine. In the 17th century large ship design was still developing. Many ships were crank or rode lower in the water than expected.

Well done!
