1/1200 Langton Miniatures HMS Cambrian

Hello all,
my second 1/1200 Langton napoleonic ship she's HMS Cambrian a 40 gun frigate she was built in 1797 and wrecked in 1828 . When built she  she carried 24 pounders but they proved heavy so they were replaced with 18 pounders . Cambrian served all over she caught many privateers many in in American waters in rivers and estuary's where they would hold up  This of course got them in trouble with the American government . Later in her career after the napoleonic wars she was present at the battle of Navarino 1827 but after pursuing Greek pirates she was involved in a collision with HMS Isis that pushed here on to rocks ( off Crete ) where she was wrecked (all the crew were saved) .
 Well thanks for stopping by .
Regards Gav .
