I am presenting to you all my latest build: Æneias, an Iris class french schooner from around 1820. She is a 14-gun gaff-rigged schooner based on the plans of La Recouvrance, a well-known vessel which sails from Brest. I have followed both the lines and the rigging of the original ship, since I had abundant free plans.There were 5 Iris-class vessels and they were originally used for mail-transport and latter for protection of merchant ships. In case anyone is wandering, the name is from the classical hero Aeneas which is said to have founded Rome (go remember school stuff! ), though I have chosen to write the name in latin.

A broadside being fired:

The intricated SNOT technique of the stern with studs pointing out in 7 different directions:

She is also modular for maintenance reasons:

Beautiful! I'd say this is one of the most convincing sailing ships I've seen :) I love that you went for a smaller vessel as well!

Excellent creation here, the hull is very nicely made, with an original design. Looks incredibly realistic, thanks for posting!

A whole different level of building compared to your previous ship posted here, thanks for adding it to Kings of the Sea :)

I like the graceful shape of the hull and your neat design for the ship's guns. Great photos on the lakes. I hope the crew managed to fend off the giant ducks :)
