Man-of-war WIP

Work on what is going to be our third 1:600 scale Age of Sail range model has already started. Now we're planning to do a man-of-war, loosely based on the plans of an early 1700s Russian warship.

At so an early design stage, many features are quite provisional, some of which are to be refined step by step, or even modified. What I can say right now is that further detailing is to include open artillery ports, mizzen mast re-design, as well as fore and main masts re-sizing. Hull is going to be around 8 or 9 cm long. So there's still a lot of work ahead!

These look really good and I’m watching with real interest. If you come out with a small sloop I’ll pounce on this range for a pirate game.

After this ship of the line, we were thinking of switching to smaller ships for a time. We had in mind to develop first a small series of xebecs (a 'pure' lateen rigged one, another 'hybrid' one combining square and lateen sails, and finally a war xebec inspired on Ottoman samples).
