This has been my Quarantine project for the past few months and, now that I’m going back to work full time, I probably won’t have much time to finish it soon. It’s getting close though so I thought I’d post it. Without further ado, my first frigate.

HMS BIRCH

And the helm works! I’m pretty proud of the rope system that I was able to implement that works just like the real steering systems of the time.
