CS Privateer 'Beauregard', Savannah GA 1861 - 1:124 scale
« on: January 03, 2017, 02:03:57 AM »
Too-Slow schooner (7 kph) fitted out by a private investment group with a single rifled 24lb gun (probably a pivot, as the Antebellum slavers were armed).
Waiting for a 24lb pivot gun, standing and running rigging. Currently berthed on a bed of Joe Frogger rum cookies.

Hull spliced from leftover LINDBERG Blockade Runner bow and stern sections.





Probably wind up rigged Brigantine style.

That's some outstanding work below the waterline!

I've never seen a better representation of barnacled copper cladding.

Well done!

P.S. Mind if I grab a cookie?  ;D
