  1. Hello after pausing the construction of the HMS ANSON 64-gun vessel, I open the shipyard for the construction of the first-class vessel HMS VICTORY 1765 following the drawings of the Greenwich NMM in 1/48 scale. A greeting

  3. Hello, I do start here my scratch project in SAINT PHILIPPE as a parallel built to benefit from the kit bashing knowledge. The SP was build to replace the lost of the burnt down elder SP-1669 set on beach by her crew and sneaky burnt down by the British. SP-1693 is to be found in some decoration drawing of the Toulon dock yard an in some oil paintings of here only seabattle in 1704 - but like very often we have to keep in mind that the artist was not very often aboard at the battle and preferred to paint in their safe cabinet instead so the results in detailing may leck more than a bit! But in here we will follow all the tracks to the original appearance of SP-1693. The 2nd (our) SP fought in two battles one at sea (Sae Battle of Malaga - pictures above) and her last as a floating battery. Here the well known transom I will show the differences in detail to the Ancre plan (two and four 36pfds gunports for example) show later on. The next source is the book of Winfield & Roberts "FRENCH WARSHIPS IN THE AGR OF SAIL 1626-1786" ...and certainly the beautyful Ancre Monography: But back to the prototype: The SP-1693 was 51ms long in keel and was wearing 90 guns and was reconstructed over 15 years by Mr. Lemineur in an Ancre monograph in 2018 - (sadly there are some Errata in the plans and pictures in there so I will try to give an advice to those I am able to figure out.) this 90 guns will be a problem later on as we will discuss than. Even in 1/64 she is an astonishing beast and I do celebrate her building start in a contemporary manner: The resulting model is of over three royal French feet (324,8mms) length... So I yesterday went into my favorite copyshop and invested the amount of money for a hole Ancre monographie into an ink (not laser) printout in 1/64. Some of the plan's sheets are wrongly named in scal. (So beware to check the scale length bar!!!) Here the Heller hull and the drawing in comparison. And the beautiful side view if the mighty SP. Frist step is to build a dummy hull skeleton from card board to check the needed space in the flat. Hopefully you like this project limping behind the Heller bashing: Sorry for my bad English in before.
  4. I started building the model of the Victory of drawings McKay and Longridge scale 1:66. The model will have four side openings to see the inner carpentry. It does not quite enter the picture nome: HMS Victory tipo: vascello inglese 104 cannoni Progetto originale: Sir Thomas Slade anno di costruzione: 1765 lunghezza reale: mt. 69,10 larghezza: mt. 15,80 dislocamento: tonn. 3225 scala del modello: 1:64 tipo modello: modellismo d'arsenale improprio piano di costruzione: The 100 - Gun Ship VICTORY - John McKay Monografia: The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships - C. Nepean Longridge gigantesco
  5. First step on our way to complete the running rigging. The sprit boom is up 😊. Don't ask how many times I attached it to the bowsprit, though. Today I was so frustrated that I tore it down one more time, adjusted the martingales and now I am happy with the result. Dad is busy winding the white ropes for the running rigging.
  6. The log for this build was posted in mid-2010. I will be reposting it in between reposts of the Naiad log. The model was built between 1976 and 2009 - a long time, with many breaks in the work. To start this off, I attach a few pictures taken of the finished model for the 2011 NRG Contest.

  8. Well, the Vic was planned for about 10-15 years down the road; (Cutty Sark and Niagara are my current builds) but our friend Dale; (laxet, check out his Niagara build log) was kind enough to ship his partially built Victory to whomever wanted to complete it. I jumped in.... After receiving the ship, I immediately compared the plans to the Anatomy of the Ship; HMS Victory. After about 4 to 6 hours, I came to the conclusion that the bulkheads are accurate (in outline) but the keel is off on bulkhead (frame) location and the mast locatiions are completely inaccurate. Please note that these are an inaccuracies in the kit; Not the experienced model builder I got this from...
  9. After finishing the santisima trinidad (07/2013) it was time for a new adventure. HMS Royal William From Wikipedia and buildlog of KeithW HMS Prince was rebuilt by Robert Lee at Chatham Dockyard in 1692, and renamed at the same time as HMS Royal William. During the War of the Grand Alliance the ship saw action at the Battle of Barfleur of 19 May 1692. The Prince belonged to the red squadron and carried the flag of Rear Admiral of the Red Sir Cloudesley Shovell. She was the first ship to break the French line during the battle. Later she was rebuilt for a second time by John Naish at Portsmouth Dockyard from 1714, relaunching on 3 September 1719. She was laid up after her re-launch and saw no service at all until she was reduced to an 84-gun Second rate ship in 1756. One year later, she was part of an unsuccessful expedition against Rochefort led by Admiral Sir Edward Hawke. Her squadron, under Vice-Admiral Charles Knowles, attacked the Île-d'Aix and forced her garrison to surrender. In 1758 she participated in Boscawen's and Wolfe's attack on the French Fortress of Louisbourg (Nova Scotia) and an indecisive skirmish with a French squadron. The following year the Royal William returned to Canada under the command of Captain Hugh Pigot to join the attack on Quebec. After the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and the capture of Quebec she sailed back to England with the body of General Wolfe. In 1760 the Royal William was Boscawen's flagship when he took command of the fleet in Quiberon Bay. However, after a severe gale he was forced to return and shift his flag to the Namur. During the expedition against Belle Île of 1761 she was detached with several other ships to cruise off Brest and prevent a French counter-attack from there. The Seven Years' War seems to be the last time that the Royal William played an active role. She was broken up in 1813.

From Wikipedia and buildlog of KeithW I 'd seen Vic his Royal William on the forum Rcgroups, and the build was so wonderful that i knew that i must build this ship also. After a dip in building boats over more then 1 year, i started the last month with the Royal William. I used plywood 10mm for the false keel and the frames. Behind the false keel was another boatbuild that failed. A swedisch privateer. Must remove the plans.

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.
