This is a 1:48 scale model of a Swan Class sloop.  In 1779 she captured the privateer L'Epervier.  She was then captured by Alliance off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1781 and retaken in Boston later that year.  Laid up in 1793, she was renamed Helena in 1797 and sold in 1802.


The primary construction wood is boxwood.  The lower hull and deck planking is holly with accents of cherry.  The only purchased items are the cannon barrels, the pump gearing and lantern lights.
