'Freia' Danish 18-pounder frigate, 1793 [3d model]

Recommended Posts

Very nice model :)

Well, the bulwarks are quite distinctively Danish and a ship that looks French but not quite French means Danish, so it was just a question of looking for a matching armament on threedecks and Freya/Thetis/Iris fit the bill. I ran those names through the rmg collection and found plans for Iris, which was a perfect match for the model apart from later style raised bulwarks and a slightly different stern. So, got to be Freya or Thetis :)

Once you recognize the stern its easy. Strikingly danish design. Used by so so many frigates in those days.

 

Do you mean the shape of the stern underneath her counter? I thought the style of the stern windows looked British.

The sternplate - that framing piece which defines the conture is very evenly rounded. The windows rather thinn. Its how Id define a typical danish stern in the late 1700s..
