This is a 1:48 scale model of a Swan Class sloop.  In 1779 she captured the privateer L'Epervier.  She was then captured by Alliance off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1781 and retaken in Boston later that year.  Laid up in 1793, she was renamed Helena in 1797 and sold in 1802.


The primary construction wood is boxwood.  The lower hull and deck planking is holly with accents of cherry.  The only purchased items are the cannon barrels, the pump gearing and lantern lights.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
