Corel 1/96 HMS Greyhound English Frigate Kit SM59

The Greyhound was a frigate with 20 cannons designed by Stacey, launched from the Deptford shipyard on February 13, 1720. Little is known of its seafaring history, it seems that together with other very similar ships, it was used in the Mediterranean to fight the pirates that plagued the coasts. The results were disappointing because the pirate ships were very agile, and armed with 4-6 cannons in the bow, and confronted the frigates head-on and prevailed.

The H.M.S. Greyhound model features plank-on-frame construction in C.N.C. routed wood. The hull uses flexible lime-wood strips for the first planking and dark walnut for the second. Fittings include ready-to-use blocks and deadeyes, blackened metal anchors, brass rods and nails, and gilded metal stern and bow decorations. Britannia metal gunports and lifeboat are expertly cast. Twenty burnished metal cannon on wooden carriages sit on the main deck. Kit is complete with wooden display board and cradle, four sheets of plans and illustrated instruction manual.
