The intricate designs for this frigate were developed by Mr. Sella di Genova in 1976/1977 and were taken from an old book of naval architecture published in German from the library of the "Ansaldo S. Giorgio" Shipyards of Genoa. His focus was on an illustrated set of drawings of the actual ship 'Aiax'. The plans illustrate in great detail the construction of a typical European frigate of the late 18th. called "Aiax"; also included are suggested modifications that would present a ship more typical of the early 19th. Century. The builder of this kit then has the choice of two different ships.

Scale 1:72
Maximum Length: 760 mm.
Hull Length: 640 mm.
Maximum Width: 390 mm.
Hull Width: 150 mm.

The original papers are no longer available and unfortunately no records of the text were kept by the previous owners of this company. Thus the current Euromodel organisation presents this ship in good faith as a classic example of an eighteenth century European frigate. (For some reason, the astute builders will note the presence of English flags! That is a mystery in itself).
