    Yeah, I know, should finish one project before starting another, but couldn't resist...

    Masts borrowed from Shannon.

    Edit: Size comparison.

    For reference, Shannon is 4ft longer than the Centurion (which is really a 60 gun 4th rate, not a 3rd)

      Been a while since I posted an update here...

      Model is largely complete, only remains to detail the weather deck and some small external details.

      This is the Shannon painted as she was when she defeated the USS Chesapeake. The paintscheme was a disguise, copying the Chesapeake and Constitution who were blockaded in Boston harbour, the idea being that american shipping trying to run the blockade would mistake the Shannon for an American frigate and not try to escape.

      The fight between Shannon and Chesapeake makes interesting reading. Allegedly, a number of 18lb shot fired by Chesapeake at short range into the Shannon's waterline bounced off the hull, perhaps Constitution isn't the only "Ironsides"....
