[Minairons] Going for an early frigate now

Our small Age of Sail ships range keeps growing, at a slow pace but steadily. This in pictures is our upcoming release: a mid-17th century frigate, a boat design laying mid way between 16th century 'fast galleons' and 18th century proper frigates --or so it seems to me, at least. Swift and maneuverable, this is the kind of ship one would choose for naval scouting or privateering.

Image

Model itself consists of 10 parts in total, with a hull resin and white metal rigging. Ultimate model kit is to be sold in box along with an appropriate flag sheet.

Image

The assembled sample model in pictures has been slightly modified by attaching two pieces of wire for flagstaffs --one at stern, the other on mainmast.

I'm not sure that I like metal sails. Maybe you should make only masts and sails could be made out of paper, fabric etc.
