Zvezda 1/200 FRENCH FRIGATE «ACHERON»
FRENCH FRIGATE «ACHERON»
From the Movie Master & Commander
Model of legendary French frigate 'Acheron' of the Napoleonic era, which became famous for its active operations against English whaling ships and coastal trading vessels around South American shores.
This Frigate was considered a nightmare for the British admiralty and its sailors. The powerful rig gave the Acheron a speed that made it practically unreachable for other ships and her guns' broadside literally swept everything away from the enemy ships board.
