'Hercules' Frigate 30 guns (With Plans)

Recommended Posts

Elements of this ship look very American, indeed I am almost certain this is based on the Chapelle plans for USS Constellation (would link but difficult on phone). As such probably an invented ship, perhaps for a model kit.

A very different arrangement. Yours is a conventional frigate with enclosed deck guns in a single full battery and F'csle and Quarterdeck ordnance (perhaps '"spardeck" ordnance if one was to be picky).

The original looks like the older frigates of one and half batteries. Such as Pomone: http://threedecks.org/index.php?display_type=show_ship&id=15490

 

The heavy ordnance is in a half battery in the Gundeck, with a full battery of lighter pieces carried on the weatherdeck. No ordnance in F'csle or quarterdeck locations.
