Synopsis:

The ships of the Mediterranean are not often well-known or documented. As a consequence we felt it necessary to preface this monograph with a study of those ships, limited to those in the service of the Royal Navy in Toulon, with the addition of those ships that constituted the commercial version of the xebec.
As usual our sources are comprised exclusively of documents of the period, with no "second hand" information. We follow our usual order of presentation. Not a simple booklet that is merely a companion-piece to the plates, this volume is a complete study whose subject justifies its importance.
Feluccas, brigantines, oared galiots, half-galleys, tartans, lateen bark, polaccas, pinks, and finally xebecs are successively examined. This monograph on the xebec LE REQUIN is based on documentation that gives us a complete picture of this ship. Painstaking research has allowed us to collect period plans of this vessel, exhaustive information on its rigging as well as the full history of the ship in peace time, at the beginning of its career, then through its racing campaign during the Seven Years' War, and finally a full account of a 1762 squadron expedition under the orders of Monsieur de Bompard.

Is there a cross section of Chebece1750 kit available or this all scotch built?
There are off course cross sections included (please see the photos), but off course not specialist for the kit construction.
It is a pure drawing set with which you can built a scratch model of the Xebec
