GHQ 22 gun Xebec

This is my first foray into a non square rigged ship. It wasn't easy and I had a couple of "Do Overs" plus the base warped a bit too much from the plaster. Anyway I will just leave it at this was not my best work. That being said, I am anxious to do another xebec since I feel I learned a lot on this first one. A small fleet of Barbary xebecs would work out well against a couple of American frigates and a few schooners.

Vol, I hadn't seen this before - very cool! I really like the colors you chose, and the sails look awesome. A small fleet of these harassing American frigates will look amazing.

Thanks James but I know this isn't my best work. Too many mistakes and do overs. But I do appreciate your kind comment. I would like to have a few more and hopefully do a better job.
