All at Sea - Argonaute
« on: October 17, 2020, 08:41:20 AM »
The first of my French third rates of renown features the 74-gun Argonaute which as I highlight is a surprising choice of French ship for the period.



In a rather short career it seems her most significant action was to have her captain at Trafalgar end up in a rather unseemly argument with a comrade accusing him of being battle-shy.

All your works you show are amazing!
By the way, if you could say, please, the length and the height of this model. Thanks!

Thank you.
Yes the model third rates are about 3.5 inches in length and from the waterline to the top of the main mast.

Lovely.
And the glorious general led the advance
With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss

Fantastique, but the flag on top and the flag in back make it look like the wind is blowing in two different directions period is that just the camera angle?
