[OL-FB] 36-gun frigate "le Hussard"

Recommended Posts

The captain stood towering on the quarter-deck with his gaze fixed on the horizon. He's to keep a cold and reserved appearence in presence of his crew, but deep inside, he was quite satisfied with his new vessel, a 36-gun frigate built by the Eltina shipyards.

The bow is armed with 4 obusiers de vaisseaux (carronade).

The bulwarks on the waist were pierced with gunports to mount 8 guns of smaller caliber.

In addition to the boat stored amidship, the HUssard has also a gunboat in tow, which can operate in attack or covering a retreat.

Wow, what an excellent frigate! *oh2* The custom hull for the frigate and rowboats is wonderful and the detailing is nothing less than superb. Those two with the amazing rigging and sails create a very eye pleasing ship from all sides! Also, love the scenes and the anchor (how did you build it?).  Truly a wonderful piece, excellent job! :laugh:

 

Can't even imagine how long that rigging took. None the less though, you did an outstanding job on it.

Amazing ship. Wish I had the bricks, motivation and skill to make something similar .. 

But at least I have something to dream about :wub:

Two comparison shots between the Hussard and a smaller frigate built with prefab hull (5 midsections).

The advantage with a custom hull is we can have a more realistic width/length ratio when building larger ships. But it also requires more bricks.

Another beautiful ship! :excited: So much to look at, so much to like! The overhead views in particular demonstrate just how much effort has gone into hull shaping, which is phenomenally done. Very nice. :thumbup:

Thank you for you kind comment. Actually when I started building this one, the main focus was trying to find a way to work out a sturdier hull while having the right shape, a lot of bricks went to the base structure, which made the ship quite heavy.:pir-grin:

Beautiful ship! I always like seeing big builds like this executed well. I quite like the color scheme as well. The blue, red, and yellow work nice with the tan.

Thank you LM71Blackbird, the colour scheme is inspired by the Hermione, or more precisely its replica.

Again a really wonderful ship.

As always I love the hull and the way you achieved the bulwark to be red inwards. All the colours together add a lot to the impression.
I also like the that thing below the gallery. The Circle with the three stripes above. Looks cool.

Thanks Wellesly. That thing below the gallery is supposed to represent that richly ornated curved structure, I don't know the correct term neither.:pir-grin:
