The first is a Gunboat Squadron.
I added bowsprits made from brass rod, removed the original mainsails and replaced them with gaff-rigged ones.
|Modifications with 1mm brass rod|
The second conversion was a 12-gun Sloop made from the 18-gun Brig kit.
I’ve used the headsails and spanker from the Third Rate kit while keeping the Brig kit’s topgallant. With the spanker boons from the Brig being too small for the 3rd Rate sail, I could have used the ones from the Third Rate, but wasn’t prepared to cannibalise the kit to that extent, so the brass rod came out again to make new ones.
