[Minairons] Age of Sail Polacre sneak peek

I'm pleased to share what is going to be our next Age of Sail 1/600 scale ship model, an 18th century polacre (also known as polacca). These ships were kind of an evolution from xebecs, primarily designed to outperform these. Polacres most tipically displayed a lateen sail on fore mast while full rigging on main and mizzen masts.

Our polacre model is to have the high quality resin hull you can see in pictures, complemented with white metal masts and sails (pictures just show the 3d-printed masters of these latter, that are going to be brought to foundry soon).
