Looks good, but it looks like it is riding a bit high in the water.

 

Any lower and the maindeck would be very hard to use, looks just right to me.

 

Really stunning model, love the different paintscheme of only having a strake along upper deck.

So the gun deck is 22 guns of frigate caliber.

 

Sounds more like a smallish two-decker 5th Rate with extra light guns stuffed into the upper works.

Better that then a second Cerberus (back guns almost below the water) ...

Cerberus should not have guns in that location (ditto Renommee, Surprise, Brig / Navy Brig).  I don't think anything is wrong with her waterline.

On the Cerberus, one might remove those 2 guns and add 2x2 guns (6-pdr* ?) on the quarterdeck.

 

* historically 3-pdr, right ?

some of these places are armed to simulate rolling guns out of the stern windows. this way we dont have to model it.

No. There is no reason to think that. Surprise already has 2x valid stern chasers on quarterdeck, and many ships have no stern chasers at all, but would be just as able to bring guns to bear through the stern windows. These are simply hatches mistaken for gunports.

And yes, Cerberus had 3pdr quarterdeck guns historically.

The same might happen to the French Hermione :

- WIP pic shows 30 + 8 (on the quarterdeck) guns

- her original armament was 26 + 6 guns (from Boudriot)
