  7. Gentlemen, can show this in the photos of the real guns?
  8. My regards! Question to colleagues. There is on the drawing an element of the Swedish cannon of 1780-1790 The naval cannon of Tornqvist`s sistem How it should look: A, B, C or else. I can not find a photo of this real cannon in internet. Colleagues, help me please.
  9. Roger, hello Interesting. And where can I read this article?
  10. On this 22-gun cutter-brig Mercury сaptain Robert Crown, a Scotsman in the Russian service, attacked the Swedish 44-gun frigate Venus in 1789 and was able to capture a superior enemy. Then Robert Crown commanded his prize - this frigate Venus. Therefore, in the Russian archives there are drawings of this frigate Venus, which served in the Russian fleet. So, I do not think that in the Swedish archive can be drawings of the cutter-brig Mercury. Although, who knows .. Although the cutter was bought in England, it could have been built in another country. I guess it was built in Denmark. I have not seen a similar drawing in the English archives. But something similar I could see in the Danish archive
  11. For my part should be explained. The photo shows a model from the Central Naval Museum in St. Petersburg. Model cutter with a brig sailing. The figure is the god Mercury. 1/24 scale Model made in the 19th century According to the museum, this is the model of the cutter-brig "Mercury", which was bought in England in 1788, and which in 1789 captured the Swedish frigate "Venus". I found in the archives information that after the purchase in England, this cutter was immediately sheathed with copper on the Thames River in private shipyards, why its arrival in the Baltic Sea was delayed a few months from the plan That is why I have a question. On the one hand there is a museum model with clinker, and on the other it is known for certain that there was a copper plating. And where is the truth? My personal opinion is that - probably, the creator of the model was wrong when he made clinker. Sailing equipment on the model is shown as of the 19th century, not at the time of purchase of the cutter in 1788 P.S. Long stored in a warehouse in the basement. The condition is very deplorable. Now the model is under reconstruction in the museum.
  12. Colleagues, what can you say about this particular question?
