“Sjælland a Topsail Schooner” by Wellesley

Wellesley shared his recent ship Sjælland.  The rigging is all hand strung with 78 wheel hubs being used as deadeyes and pulley’s.

So hoist up the Sjælland Sails, see how the main sail sets, but no need to call for the captain just click here!

This MOC was inspired by @Mr. Townsend‘s Miss Elizabeth and @Bregir‘s use of 4185. Also of course the USS Hannah, on which the Miss Elizabeth is based.

A new ship was launched at the Farrensman shipyards. This time an order from the WTC. The Topsail Schooner Sjælland is a fast, light armed merchant vessel. Her rig doesn’t require a big crew and her four carronades as well as her four swivel guns are enough to defend against little ambushes and make her one of the more independent merchant vessels.

78 of those little brown wheels are in this MOC. I’m happy with the result, only the sheets for the foresails bother me a bit. I might think of another solution but for now I want to give her some rest.
