Hello to everyone, this is my model of the 74 Boudriot cannon, the scale is 1:56, I started in 2001 by drawing the hull carpentry and soon after starting the construction, I start to publish the first photos
The next build. Before to begin the construction with wood, I want to have all the necessary information I need for the complete build. -I do not want to have to do extensive research -I do not want to draw plans -I do not want to begin in 5 years My prefered activity is to build and I want to concentrate on this particular aspect. V4.0 for the forth time 74 I will build a 74 guns 1/24 I will use the biggest scale I can manage. For this one 1/24 is 8 feet long. This is about the maxim
Greetings everyone; Can anyone point me to a good source for the scantlings of the stern timbers in a 74 gun ship, built in the first half of the 1780s. I can find an entry in a contract I have which specifies that the counter timbers should be 10" sided, but no other dimensions are given. Goodwin, rather frustratingly, gives a range of fractions to multiply parts of the stern by to obtain other parts, but he does not give a starting dimension to which I can apply these factors to begin the process. The establishment lists do not mention them either,
A brife introduction and some thoughts… While trying to put together all the info and starting the new log here I searched for the CD of the MNM yesterday and the date wrote on it was January 2012. Therefore I started this project more or less around those days. MNM is the acronym for Naval Museum of Madrid. They used to be able to sell you plans and prints for one euro plus two euros for the CD but they do not do it anymore. Something that I don´t understand at all. It is totally a shame because we have an enormous Public Record Office with thousands of files and print
