Product Description
This ship possesses a bizzare type of rig, which I have come to call a "fan sail";  It is basically two crab claw rigs mounted on either side of the mainmast.  I've seen it many times in fantasy artwork, and there is even an elven ship which uses fan sails exclusively - the whole ship looks like a giant swan.  That being said, no historical ship I know of ever had such sails, leading me to believe that the design simply does not work all that well.  Therefore, I included square and lateen sails on the ship to complement the dubious fan sails.  It is certainly an interesting looking ship, I just don't know how practical it would be.

The "large" size was the original model, and is labelled as 1/1000 scale.  By this metric, the "small" size would be approximately 1/1700 scale, however since this ship has little to no basis in reality, that shouldn't matter for most board games.
