Another shot of one of the frigates

Here is a close up of one of the frigates.  As you can see, I have only done the standing rigging.  But I did feel the need to fly the flag from a line and not just glue it to the edge of the sail.
This ship has the sails turned to starboard in a more "natural" sailing position. This does really change the look of the ship.  Now if the spanker sails were available with a curve in the other direction...

Here they are.  The HMS Amazon, HMS Desiree, HMS Blanche, HMS Alcmene. 
(Name order does not match the picture.)
The first 4 British ships for the Copenhagen battle completely finished.  You can also see in the back ground the next 2 ships in process, HMS Saturn and HMS Ramilles.

These are only 18 months behind schedule. :-(
2 of these had been languishing in a box almost finished for over a year.  I found the flags and bases again a couple of months ago, so I decided to try and get some of these done.  I finished these mid-November.  The hardest part is still painting the hulls.
