Hello ,
The schooner Albatros was built in the Baltimore shipyards in 1840. It already had an armed bridge because it had been built to defend the coasts of the Usa.
The slender shape of the hull and the open deck are a copy of the French frigates that frequently sailed near American ports during the War of Independence.
In the United States, the schooner acquired its final appearance in the first half of the 18th century and quickly established itself on both coasts.
Its hull, thin and flat, is ideal for a good look. At that time, they were devoted to commercial transport and high-end fishing.
Scale : 1/55 , Constructo model.
Regards , René
