French frigate of the middle of the 18th century
This 30 gun French frigate is famous because of its designer, the well-known
naval architect Fredrik Chapman. In addition to the drawings, all the calculations
relating to the construction and the hydrodynamic resistance of the vessel
are provided in Chapman’s “Architectura Navalis Mercatoria”, published
in Stockholm in 1768. Thanks to the fact that “everything is cut”, the preparation
of the components and the choice of woods, even those of you
who are not experts can build a faithful reconstruction of this beautiful ship with
our model, which is based on Chapman’s plans.
