  1. HMS Enterprize was the lead ship of the Enterpize class of 1770. The class was designed by Sir John Williams with a gross dimensions and tons of 120’6” (gun deck), 99’6” (keel), 33’6” (beam), 11’ (depth of hold) and to carry 200,men. Armament was 24 x 9 pound guns on the upper deck, 4 x 3 pound guns on the quarter deck, and 12 swivel guns. She was ordered in January 1771, Keel laid on September 9, 1771 at Deptford, launched August 24, 1774; hulked in 1791. Twenty-seven ships composed this class. A pair of paintings of the ship by Joseph Marshall in 1775 is held by the Scien
  2. My build log file for the Enterprise built in Maryland in 1799. I purchased the ship, Enterprise 1799 about 8 years ago. Came shrink wrapped, just like new so I thought. I unwrapped the box and did an inventory. Besides ** missing the instruction manual (WTH) there are various other pieces missing. The missing pieces I assume I can build ( wood pieces) and the ornaments I can order. In search of an instruction booklet I came upon this site. Thank goodness! I was surprised the member name "Rowboat" was available. A funny name and is fi
  3. Edit 03/25/2020 I have been very humbled to hear of several new builders of this kit mention this build log as a reference. thank you, I hope it helps you out. That being said, at some point I threw the instructions away and began using Lees Masting and Rigging as well as Antscheral Fully Framed as inspiration and guidance. There are most likely many details that are incorrect for the ship. I used the building experience more to learn techniques to build a model I was satisfied with visually rather than an historically correct museum build. So, carry on and enjoy!! Well..
  4. No, that wasn't a typo. The scale is 1:51 - says so right on the box. How they figured that I'll never know. Welcome to my build! Hope you'll stay along for the ride. The name Enterprise has had several incarnations as a boat, some better documented than others. This one had a fairly productive history as well as a refit or two. So how accurate is this kit? Don't know and I'm not going to worry about it. When I am browsing kits on websites, I have always found Enterprise to be an attractive build just as it is shown. So that's where I'm headed. I see several other boat kits that ar

  6. Hello guys! I recently started with my first build and I already have some pictures to show. I am planning to paint the ship with the accurate color based on a image ive found (inside hullplanking is red, end black and white stripe for outside). Also I want to make custom gunports and make guns for the stern. Here are my first pics. I hope you guys will enjoy it. First the frames and blocks, I made sure the frames where parallel to the keel so I used clamps to bend them. In between the dry time I printed some 6 pounder cannons ive made in Fusion 360 (3d mod
  7. I begin the construction of two Royal Navy frigates: HMS Enterprise and HMS Siren. These are two frigates of the same type. Both models will be built in the classic Gregorian style using technology and vintage style (using artificial aging technology). The scale for the models is 1:36. These are quite large models with a maximum length of 1200 mm. A huge database of drawings is here: https://prints.rmg.co.uk/collections/ship-plans/products/syren-siren-1773-j6307
  8. I finished my first RC scratch built square rigger HMS Harrier a couple of years back and although I'm very happy with the result always considered her something of a practice run for the command that everyone wants - a frigate. Check out Harrier in action on video. With the current pandemic making the full sized sailing dinghy I was hoping to start this year look just that - hopeful - there's no time like the present to start the frigate. She's relatively cheap, being cobbled up from old floor boards and ply with the only realtively expensive bits being servos. She'
  9. Hi all. I am a new member and this is my first build thread. First a bit of history. I bought this kit back in 1991 while serving in the USAF and stationed in Zaragosa, Spain. Started building it in the mid 90s after having completed the Liberty by Artesania Latina. Also purchased in Spain. The kit was horrible. The instructions were non existent. The wood questionable. However, the plans were fair and the quality of the carronades was outstanding. With the help of several books I made a start. Very quickly I realized that I would have to scratch build most of the parts and provide
  10. This kit was purchased from Hobby Lobby several years ago. Since that time like the rest of my kits, it has resided in a closet. Today I decided I need something “easier” to do while I work on the Bounty. And it just happened my 1/700 Hornet by Trumpeter arrived. So like the Arizona, I’ll gain some experience with this $6 kit. So far the main difficulty was finding Navy Blue 5-N. No one had it here. So unless I find some, I plan to mix a 3:1 ratio of Model Air insignia blue with black. The blue is FS35044 while 5-N is 35045. It’s a waterline kit. Another fir
  11. Greetings everyone! Been a bit quiet of late due to the fabulous summer but wanted to start a new post where those interested could gather information on the famous schooner/brig Enterprise. While no plans of her exist, so much secondary information does that I cant help but feel an accurate model could easily be made of her. Please feel free to add any docs/info to this thread though I'm trying to avoid the Constructo model which I've come to feel isn't a very accurate depiction of the ship.This is what I've come up with... enjoy First below we have the half-hull model that exists i
  12. Greetings everyone! I wanted to start a post to discuss certain historical ships where information is sketchy and as far as I can tell no plans or diagrams exist. This is an opportunity to pool together resources if you happen to know of plans or details and resource info for some of the ships mentioned please join in and offer what you've got. Specifically the ships in question I've listed below. Feel free to add more content or correct any inaccuracies to the info as this list is by no means complete just all I could think of off the top of my head. Also not putting down ships which were ne
  13. Hello everyone Well Christmas has come and gone and as promised I am starting a build log. One thing to notice straight off is that I have named the ship Enterprise with an 'S' rather than 'Z' which is the spelling on the kit. Not a big deal but something I want to do. Now as stated in the title this is a card model. I have never done anything like this before so with the help of all you good people here I hope I can do her justice. Here are 2 photos of the kit.
  14. I've really wanted this kit for some time. Got a deal I couldn't pass up on it, so I decided to shelf the other build life and motivation had caused to stall. laser cuts on main plywood sheet are very good. Popped out with out any additional cutting required. fit together was top notch too, didn't require much if any filing for snug square fit. glue up went well.

  16. Hi gang- I'd like to first say that I've really come to appreciate this community. I've followed so many builds and have enjoyed the highs and commiserated on the lows. The biggest thing that has stood out to me is the support for each other whether it's the completion of a build, a birthday, an illness or the passing of a loved one, this community has each others back. Ok. Enough of the sappy stuff.... My name is John. I'm a Realtor out of Sacramento California. There's a lot of "hurry up and slow down" to my job thus I'm able to troll the forums everyday. I've always loved life in miniat
  17. Hoi, I am going to build my first sailship with a lasercut hull and some details, looking forward to it, but it scares me too. I Always liked a sailship for decoration, so now the time has come to do somthing about it. This build will give her the appearence of the first years of service [ like that] with the fancy colors and open side's on the aft deck. foto 2 upper drawning. To start whit frame's and first planking for stabillity. Now i'm going back to gluing, see you soon. Jos.
  18. I tore the cellophane from the kit on May 30th 2013. I devoted a fair bit of time to studying the plans and instructions, and getting to understand Constructo's approach to the build. I was expecting to find a parts list included among the plans. But Constructo seem to rely on careful packaging and marking of all the separate parts, instead of just listing them. I'll have to hope they're reasonably generous with the planks of wood. There's a special note in the kit pointing out that, if I'm so awful at planking that I need to resort to double-skinning, they've included enough 0.5mm strips f
  19. Good day all, I've been browsing the forums for the past couple of weeks as I begin my Enterprise build (my first). First off, thanks to all for the contributions, it's already been very helpful to me. I've got to set myself up to transfer the pictures I've taken thus far into this thread, hopefully I'll have time this weekend. I've been reading through the many other Enterprise build logs but haven't been able to get a clear answer on something, I was hoping to get some feedback. I'm close to starting in on the hull planking, and my question is this: have most people done a second
  20. Hi All, This is my first build log on Model Ship World though I have been a lurker here long before the 'Great Crash'. There are several excellent build logs on the Enterprise by Constructo already in the forum: JLuebbert, Archicar, SRC, Probablynot, I view mine as an additional compliment to these builds. I am working with the 'Old' version of the Enterprise kit with the 'limited' instructions, and the links above have informed my approach to this kit. Frankly without those above build logs and others scatter around the internet this kit would probably still be in the box. I have been b
  21. The third ship to be named USS Enterprise, was a schooner, built by Henry Spencer at Baltimore, Maryland, in 1799, whose command was given to Lieutenant John Shaw. This ship was overhauled and rebuilt several times, effectively changing from a twelve gun schooner to a fourteen gun topsail schooner and eventually to a brig rigged ship.
