I’m a newbie to the site, and just getting back into working on the Constructo Schooner U-604 model my wife bought me over 35 years ago!
What I didn’t realize at the time is there is no listed scale in the model. On the plan, it is described as a “16-1/2 inch scale model schooner”. If I was just going to build the kit, this probably wouldn’t be a problem, but I’m probably going to want to tweak it a bit so knowing the scale would help. I’m guessing the actual ship would be between 60 - 80 feet. It has a tiller, not a wheel, and there are 19 timbers per side for the rail. I’m guessing there are some rules of thumb for timber spacing but i don’t have a clue what they would be. From perusing various schooner pictures, it would appear a spacing of 3 - 4 feet on the timbers might be a good guess????
Some of the tweaks I’m thinking about would be adding a support boat, modifying the stern, etc.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
