    A small 20-gun corvette, the Maagen appears to have been built in 1690, and was either wrecked and rebuilt in 1694 or modified at that date.
    Was on the Pre-Approved plans list. WIP Thread can be found here http://www.burningsea.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1540

      28 gun French Light Frigate

      I started work on my next ship. She is a French Light Frigate based on plans from the Orlogsbasen (the do not appear on the web site) for an unnamed ship, probably Nymphe. She probably dates from the 1700-07 period and was 96 peids. I am going to enlarge her a bit (to 109 peids) and use these plans to build l' Astree, a 28 gun Frigate of 1727.

        Hi,

        I'm thinking about getting into this moddeling thing (I know I need to build a small boat first)

        but I found an interesting looking ship on chapman plate 39 no. 10 It appears to be a ketch with 10 3lb guns (could be upped to 4lbs in game) and a single 18lb chaser, it would appear to provide something rather different...

        length 74' (approx)
        guns (10 3-4lbs) 1 18lb chaser
        Ketch rigged

          Moulded Breadth: 29'6"
          Burthen: 416 tons

          Armament

          Quarter deck: 4 or 6 x 4pdr

          This ship was originally started by Cornwallis, but was then deserted some months ago. I'm starting over with this now.

              Vaisseau de 46

              After much beating around the bush I have decided on this ship as my next project.

              She measures 40m between the Perpendiculars, so the fls length will be slightly longer.
              Historically the 46 guns would have been:
              8 4lbs
              20 8lbs (but cut for 22)
              22 18lbs

                I got the plans from Michael O'Dwyer and this looks like the most information we can gather about it.

                23.24 by 5.9 meters
                14 Swivels
                8 4lbs Cannons
                Snow Rigged

                Here's a link to some plans:

                    I have graduated with my B. A. Visual Art, Game Art. I would love to say I have all kinds of time to hurry and finish the Kronshlot and perhaps continue on some other ships but, that wouldn't be totally realistic of me. With life, work, children and grandchildren it's a tough and busy life for me. Anyhow I DO promise to go back to the Kronshlot fix things I did wrong prior to getting the B. A. and resubmit the ship for approval as time allows. I always finish what I start no matter how long it takes. *laughs* and the ship has been a work in progress. Thanks for being patient Yarrrr!

                              Castle Friedrichsburg, Brigantine
                              Length 22 meters

                              6 guns, small to med. plus swivles

                              Plans purchased from http://www.bestscalemodels.com/cgi-b...&affiliate_id=

                              The gaff and boom main sail has been replaced with a more historically correct lug sail.
                              Apparently the design was Provisionally Approved, but the link to that thread located in the Archival thread is no longer correct. I will be working off plans and a picture of the old model. I do need someone to figure out what numbers are used on the scale at the bottom of the plans.


                              Also to kriswood, the wiki is offline and I know Im going to need the tutorials on there. If you could please get that back up and running, send me a pm with the text and pics or even send me a pm asking for my email so you send the stuff directly to me that would be great.
