I've completed my next ship, the Héros. The Héros is a French 3rd rate ship of the line with 74 guns.
Painted By: Jay White
This one painted up much faster than my first one as I had expected. However, I had to repaint the sides as I wasn't happy with the first colour I used for the French "wine" (red-brown) colour. Very happy with the results of this ship. Next up will be the French flagship, which I will be adding a string of signal flags (I'll do this for all the flagships).
Scale is 1/300 - hull is from Old Glory. Sails and gun ports are 3D printed.
Pictures below ... enjoy!
