20 Gun Sixth Rate Sloop of War


Recommended Posts

Kits like that? None. As Bob has suggested, if you want to go the kit route, you'll have to find something similar and modify it. Unfortunately, other than the ubiquitous Constitution, there aren't many kits of U.S. warships from that era at all, though I think Wasp might be on a certain designer's radar if memory serves me.

...  I assumed that the model in the picture is of an unnamed British frigate since the model is in a British museum.  No flags flying from the masthead and several frigates from that era swapped hands at least once.  Plus British, French and American frigates had a lot in common in the late 18th century and early 19th century.

Actually, based on number of guns, it is a sloop, which is also how the NMM describes it.

Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.
