Italian Barquentine Fidente
Offers Combination of Square Rig and Schooner
A Great Model Shipbuilding Subject
From Italian archives come the plans of the “Ship-Schooner” Fidente (Trusting).
In English we would refer to her as a barquentine (alternatively barkentine), which wikipedia defines as “a sailing vessel with three or more masts; with a square rigged foremast and fore-and-aft rigged main, mizzen and any other masts.”
II think Fidente would make a handsome ship model, and with simplified rigging on the schooner masts, would be a good subject if you’re not quite ready for a full-rigged ship model.
