HMS Titan stern

I have just added the stern onto the Titan. The next step is to mount the half and full cannons on the gun deck. Once I have mounted the 26 guns on the gun deck I will add the main deck.

HMS Titan 32 gun frigate


This is my first 28mm scale ship. I started last summer by carving the base hull out of solid wood and then building up the gundeck using balsa wood. The ship will carry 26 x 12lb  guns on the gun deck and 6 x 6 lb guns on the main deck.
