Greetings, I thought I’d share my recently finished HMS Pandora in 1/1000 scale. The hull is basswood, the deck is individually planked (bloody difficult), the masts are styrene and brass. Sails are linen paper and the rigging is tungsten and molybdenum wire.
Hi everyone My miniature version of Pandora (using Anatomy of the Ship plans) was started about 5 years ago, but to this day, remains semi-completed. The reason for not completing it was ...yep...you guessed it...I got scared of doing the masting and rigging! This, in spite of building the Victory as well as Bounty and Lennox, all of which were three masted ships with extensive rigging! You'd think I wouldn't have any problems and would be eager to rig this model, but, to no avail. One day I will finish her...I promise. In the meantime, I'll update the build
I decided to start work on another model (work on Royal Caroline have reached the stage where it can be easily done at home in the autumn and winter months). The choice fell on Pandora. It is my first real scratch build (POB) according to plans from the book Anatomy of the Ship. The first phase of construction was making a plan of the bulkheads and the keel using TurboCad.
Hi, With this I would like to continue my Banterer build log. Best regards Lami
