This is my 3D build log for HMS Pandora. The build was started in February 2011, and it is still in progress.
The primary references include the Anatomy of the Ship: The 24-gun Frigate Pandora (the plans), The Shipbuilder's Repository (it contains the dimensions and the scantlings of HMS Porcupine, which is of the same class as the Pandora), and the “Swan” Series. Many other books and online resources are also referred to.
I began with drafting a 2D drawing of the ship, and then I imported different parts of the 2D drawing into Solidworks to guide the 3D building process.
In the following posts I will post the screenshots I captured during the build and briefly describe what is new in each figure.
