The frigate was the eighteenth-century equivalent of the cruiser used for a wide variety of roles from fleet reconnaissance to patrolling the sea lanes. Launched in 1794, Diana was a typical British frigate of the period, whose long and active career spanned virtually all the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. In 1815 she was sold to the Dutch Navy, which she continued to serve until destroyed by an accidental fire in 1839.
A full description of the ship and her position in the development of the British frigate.
. A pictorial selection covering the most reliable models of the ship.
. A guide to the ship’s color scheme and decorative work on the book jacket.
. More than 300 perspective and 3-view drawings, with in-depth descriptive keys, of every detail of the ship — general arrangements, hull construction, fittings, masts and yards, rigging and sails, and armament.
Another e-Book for all the Period Ship Modelers out there and I think some of the MSW people will appreciate this one.
