1/1200 Langton Miniatures French Frigate

Hi all,
I have another ship on the stocks this time a French one in this case she is the French 36 gun frigate La Reunion . Launched in 1786 was captured 1793 and wrecked (in British service) 1796 . She was armed with mostly 12 pounders and six 6 pounders during the French Revolution she commerce raided out of Cherbourg . In 1793 she was made a prize of HMS Cresent in a fight in the English Channel . Later in Royal Navy service she was wrecked in the Thames Estuary (1796) .
 A word of caution on the paint scheme I have used the present French frigate Harmione as a guide to painting I like the look so I am sticking with it . I am trying out the brass sail set and I hope to use paint brush bristles for rigging this time to see how it works .
So the next ship post will see her finished off (I hope 😏) .
All the best, keep your powder dry and your ships biscuits free of weevils 😉.
Until next time...........
Regards Gav .
