MY HOME MADE MODEL FRIGATE


This summer I had a lot of time on my hands. I had been making model planes out of scrap wood. That got boring, so I decided to make a frigate. A frigate is a fast three masted, square-rigged ( meaning the sails run perpendicular to the ship) sailing war ship of medium size. These were used much from 1750-1850. Frigates had 30-44 guns. One of the most powerful, and most feared by the English, was the Constitution; an American frigate. I made my model out of pine wood, bamboo skewers, and popsicle sticks. It took me two days to build and I recommend a project like this for anyone to try.
