  1. Hello all here! I'm glad our World is back! So I start here my build log for HMS Sphynx. In the past life (I mean old MSW...) I have some images added to gallery, so I will post them all here in chronological order with some descriptions. The Sphynx was 20 gun ship designed by J. Williams, and was smallest 6th rate frigate. She was built in 1775 at Portsmouth, Hampshire and broken ap in 1811. The Sphynx-class is also the last class of small frigates with 9 pdr. There are 10 further ships builded: Camilia, Chathan Dyd, 20.4.1776-1809 Daphne, Woolwich Dyd., 21.3.1776-1802 Galatea, Deptford Dyd., 23.3.1776-1783 Ariadne, Chatham Dyd., 27.12.1776-1814 Vestal, Plymonth Dyd., 23.35.1777-1777 Perseus, Randall, Rothehille, 20.3.1776-1805, 1798 convertet to a bomb vessel Unicorn, Randall, Rothehille, 23.3.1776-1787 Ariel, Perry & Co., Blackwall, 7.7.1777-1779 Narcissus Plymonth Dyd., 9.5.1781-1796 For this project I have ordered the original plans from NMM, and I have decided to redraw the plans for model building. For decorative work and also some other details I have ordered the pictures from "Science and Society Picture Library" http://www.scienceandsociety.co.uk/results.asp?image=10325356 . For dimensions of all hull details I have used the Establishment lists, and Steels "The Elements of masting and Rigging" for mast, yards and standing rigging. The running rigging and sailing plan also arrive later. The result looks at time thus: http://zope.mein-media.de/meinmedia/plans/index.html In February 2006 the plans were ready, at least so far that I have begun with the building of the model. Parallel and in addition I have done further research, and the plans are further worked out. Now the images of beginning: The main wales are cut according to plan, and glued on. Then waterway, spirketing and part of planking abowe main wales are added. The model was then put keel over, and underwater planking begins. Best regards Alexander

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.
