HMS Serapis was a ship of the Roebuck Class, a 5th rated ship with 44 guns.
I think the old Airfix HMS Shannon will have to be pressed into service as a stand in.
I already have a Shannon built, but not water lined, I will chop it up and add some rigging and then come up with a small diorama.

Very Nice, and atmospheric display.

Well done,

More Bon Homme Richard.
I found another model, this was originally produced by Revell in 1967 and the scale is 1:132 (?), why I ask.
So far I have water lined the ship, it has been undercoated and given a coat of brown colour.
The hull is posed next to the smaller model for a size comparison.
