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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
