  1. How cool! I know there are a bunch on sketchfab (a 3D marketplace), which is, it seems, what the Vrak museum is using to host their models. An account from the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary has a series of Great Lakes shipwrecks: https://sketchfab.com/thunderbaynms/collections/shipwrecks There's a near-endless flow of 3D work to look through, but here are some other notable wrecks I've come across on the site that you might enjoy: https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/sandusky-model-higher-res-a4f630827353445c89b017d4abe1b5f9 https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/defiance-96fdd59a180644dfb36bfcedc2f64a65 https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/daniel-j-morrell-double-wheel-stern-3073a4c133b1423db2ed0bd30de551d3
  2. I haven't been able to find any stories about the wreck in English yet, but here are a few Dutch sources... wonderful stuff! NorthSeaDivers log for the wreck site, short summary of the location and identification of the ship including a useful outline of the remaining wreck overlaid on Apollo's draught: https://www.northseadivers.nl/logboek/219-his-majesty-s-ship-apollo-1794.html?fbclid=IwAR2o1jGVn7H0xNFaRuI9Cq3G-JO_7x17ptQlTnCZUTTOpxh6I-J7ztYm1_I There's a short video diving the wreck on this site: https://www.vrt.be/vrtnws/nl/2021/01/06/kanonnen-van-brits-oorlogsschip-hms-apollo-bovengehaald-uit-bode/ Just a guess, but it seems like there's a chain pump visible among the guns. The remaining wreck appears to be in wonderful condition. Another video on NorthSeaDivers facebook: https://fb.watch/2-tuQA87I9/ almost entirely viewing the ship's guns on the seabed Site outlining a few finds from the wreck (including two remarkable bayonet scabbards & cartridge bags) from last summer(?), which seem to be bound for Kaap Skil, on loan from England: https://www.texel.nl/mozard/!suite05.scherm1070?mNwb=91756&mNwc=129&fbclid=IwAR2lnlU9SmaEqQYzlA8Xxb9v4SXOpxI7Rb-y7aYCyqNXq0ERbe8I48k_pHc
  3. Hello Sperry, (Another new member here, though I've been lurking for a while. Going to introduce myself soon!) You might be interested in the visual references on the MOLA Deptford archaeology reports. The online versions include almost only technical talk, save a short historical background at the beginning, but there's a wealth of image references at the end: https://www.mola.org.uk/sites/default/files/downloads/Convoys%20Wharf%20post-ex%20assessment%20Part1.pdf That's the one which I think would be most useful for what you're after, but the other parts can be accessed through this page: https://www.mola.org.uk/blog/archaeological-investigation-deptford-royal-dockyard. As Allan and Wayne suggested, the NMM has plenty of resources that may interest you. They have some great late-Georgian models as well: https://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections.html#!csearch;searchTerm=dockyard_model There's also YouTube video showing different angles (with larger pictures) of the NMM Deptford model: It could be too detailed or too focused on a single yard for your purposes, but I can't help highly recommending the full MOLA publication on the royal yard at Deptford: https://www.mola.org.uk/deptford-royal-dockyard-and-manor-sayes-court-london-excavations-2000–12. It's pricey, but cheap in truth for what it is. It's an excellent book all around, well-written and extraordinarily informative. I apologize if these pictures are hard to read, but here is what the ToC looks like, in case you or anyone else is interested in buying it: I hope these help! John
