Perhaps the most famous ship of Trafalgar outside of HMS Victory.

Although the Battle of Trafalgar is known for a fight between ships of the line, there were also a few very small vessels present. HMS Pickle was one of them. A small but also a very fast ship. She was also the first ship to bring news of the victory at Trafalgar (and Nelson's death) to England just 14 days after the battle. Eurobricks member Dread Pirate Wesley has made this fine vessel in LEGO and he did an excellent job. Even more because it's his first attempt at a historical ship.
