  1. And that's what was done as a result on the model I think that the design of the stern was a success and it corresponds to what we see in the old Russian books on shipbuilding and on the historical models from the museum
  2. All Russian tenders, like the brig, like the schooners in Russia, had a typical design of a stern and transom. Here is a drawing from the archival Russian book of the 18th century on shipbuildin (Russian translation of the book by John Fincham - Финчам - Краткое изложение о практическом кораблестроении - 1841), which took as a basis for the tender "Avos" Figure 10 And this description from the book, as it is arranged Here is the second russian author Okunev on shipbuilding (1836 year), where this construction and design of a stern and transomis mentioned Here is a detailed description of the construction. As planks go upright, what should be the locks and other The designers also used models from the museum in Greenwich, where individual elements were taken for example
  3. Good afternoon, colleagues! I bring to your attention the test assembly of the new woodenkit from "MasterKorabel" Scale 1/72 The tender "AVOS" (in russian тендер "Авось") is the first ship of the Russian-American Company that was built in Alaska in Novo-Arkhangelsk in 1806 (now is Sitka, USA) The total length of the model is 42 centimeters 8 guns - 3 pound. Archival drawings of the tender "Avos" not preserved, unfortunately. But the Russian tenders are very similar to the English tenders. Russian shipbuilders used the English school. Therefore, designers "MasterKorabel" took as a basis one of the drawings from National Maritime Museum (Greenwich). In the basis - is Arrow (1823), a 10-gun single-masted Cutter, as designed and built by Captain Hayes. Tender "AVOS" was smaller in size than the "prototype". This drawing has undergone a change in length and width to match the basic dimensions of the tender "AVOS". As a result, the basis for a new theory and new circuits of hull. In short, this is a complete reconstruction of designers "MasterKorabel". So, here are the first photos
  4. Good afternoon, colleagues I wondered the same question. Here is what I could find from the archive. In these figures, I do not see the stop in ports I'm sure David Antscher wrong
  5. But sweep port wider than the oar. Do not fastened during rowing oars?
  6. Good evening! Can you please tell as the brig or frigate fixed oar in sweep ports? What form did oarlock (rowlock) and how it was attached to the board?
  7. Jonh, thank you very much for the information. Can anyone met on the internet or in the library "The 1786 Anchor Weight Establishment" ? Eugen
  8. good afternoon Please help in finding information about the number, weight of anchors, which allowed for each ship in the Royal Navy in the late 18th century. Maybe there's method of calculating the weight of the anchor according to the tonnage of the ship? I'm interested in the weight of the anchor for the 22gun brig-сutter 342 tons in 1788 Plan showing the measurements for anchors as well as descriptions, diagrams, and dimensions fo rh anchors up to 80 hundredweight in divisions of one cwt. From Tyne & Wear Archives Service, Blandford House Dated: 1794 thank you

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.
