  1. Hello wood-, iron- and steelworms! The very first thing I've to admit is the scale is nominally 1/36 - but due to an enlargment fault it is only 1/40. So I said to myself "Damed 4 dots beside the lne... it could have been the drying of the paper or the wrapage in the big copy machine... so I decided to take the plans as they are - and do the start with them. I've got a thread about the plans here: http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/12596-ss-warkworth-an-early-steamer-not-too-big-please/ andall the planing facts will be placed there. The S/S Warkworth was built in 1874 in Newcastel up on Tyne on the shipyard of C.S.Swan & Co, out of iron. I'didn't find a prpper date of launch only this date on the (usualy coloured) sideview of S/S Warkworth. This can mean she was launched on the 8th II. 1875 or the drawing is dated to this day. Does anybody know something about dating traditions in the shipyards on Tyne? The ship was ordered by H.Andrews who was connected with Broomhill Coal Co. for the coal transport and built in a progressiv design. It is now known that if the angle of the water flowing to the line of the keel after is exceeding about 18°, the flow of water toward the propeller is liable to be turbulent in creasing drag. Due to this the lines were altered compared to former designs. She has got a complete forecastledeck - til the bridge the deck is iron not any longer wooden. To store the new cylindrical Scotch boilers the deck of the boilerroom had to be raisen - the enginerooms hight had to be extended too - due to standing hammer steammachine with a high and low pressure cylider. This kind of construction was basically used for the next three quarters of a century - till the steam coasters started to disappeare in the mid 1950s. The captain was no longer near the rudder as used fore the last 3000 years - hhis place went to a flying bridge infront of the funnel - raised on a little platform called "Flying Bride". To seperate it from the "real" bridge connecting the two side wheel boxex earlier. This interestin light construction gave a good overview to the Officer giving orders to the helmsman behind and below of him at the main steering wheel. S/S Warkworth was built to transport coal - so she had two big cargo spaces of 14,15o and 13,ooo cubicfeet - for ther own coal consumption she had a 102 ts coal bunker. She works in coal trffic on the north-east coast of Great Britain and measured imperial. and registerd with: 160.8 x 27.1 x 12.9 - at 555 grosstons and 334 nettotons. driven by a 70 hp machine on a single propeller. All the data are from Charles V. Waine's books Steam Coaster and Short Sea Traders (2nd Edition 1980) The Collier Fleets (1st Edition 1990) As you can see from the pictures there are not too much details that overcome to us. I couldnt find anything about the propeller - with out the fact that it was a single one... but does he have five, four or three blades? So I'll start with the building board and the backbone next week. The construction of the bulkheads will be shown in the article about scetches, plans and drawings. As all the pre-work is done there and the "output" is shown here to you. The real building progress will be shown here - to give you an Idea of the size I built a little figure for you - standing on a €-cent coin and based on a square-inch he is to scale: MrSquare-Inch EDIT 12/Feb/2016: Due to my flat's groundplan I've to reduce the scale down to 1/4'' to the foot - 1:48... Hope you like him.

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.
