I really enjoy building Navwar ships, not because they are great detailed molds, but because they are not. I enjoy trying to fix them up so they can take the table with the Langtons and GHQs and Davcos. Among the package Gunner sent me were three Mars 22 gun corvettes. I didn't have any corvettes built so I decided to work on these. Unfortunately I did not take any photos of them right out of the package. Like most of the Navwar models the first thing I do is throw all of the sail/mast sets in the scrap lead pile for melting down. In this case I kept the bow sprit and sprit sails as they appeared to be fairly sturdy. I raised the hulls using my normal method (see http://volsminiatures.blogspot.com/2015/01/my-method-for-raising-navwar-hulls.html) and scratchbuilt the masts (see http://volsminiatures.blogspot.com/2013/04/scratch-building-11200-ship-masts.html) and the sails.
The next few posts will be the individual finished corvettes.
