  1. Hello, This is my 3D build log for HMS Pandora. The build was started in February 2011, and it is still in progress. The primary references include the Anatomy of the Ship: The 24-gun Frigate Pandora (the plans), The Shipbuilder's Repository (it contains the dimensions and the scantlings of HMS Porcupine, which is of the same class as the Pandora), and the “Swan” Series. Many other books and online resources are also referred to. I began with drafting a 2D drawing of the ship, and then I imported different parts of the 2D drawing into Solidworks to guide the 3D building process. In the following posts I will post the screenshots I captured during the build and briefly describe what is new in each figure. Jingyang
  2. I have been given access to a model of HMS Pandora for personal use. I initially wanted to CNC machine the parts but can't seem to find anybody willing to CNC them both sided as they are small parts. So as a test I decided to 3D print one part using Shapeways.com. Here is the result but it was quite expensive at £8GBP and took about a month to arrive. So now the test works I have just pre-ordered a desktop 3D printer.. What do you think? Tim
  3. This build log will trace my scratch build of HMS Pandora in her 1790 configuration. Build started about 2009 and was initially documented on the original MSW. I'll recreate the log as best as possible, but my memory and not having all the photos to hand mean that the initial part will be not as in depth as the original. It'll probably take week or so to catch up. If you have any questions in the meantime ask - I may be a bit fuzzy on details, but should be able to answer. The Choice: Pandora was chosen as a successor build to HMB Bounty that I completed about 2009. I wanted something bigger, military, with a south seas link, existing plans, and since Pandora was historically connected to Bounty it was a logical choice. History: HMS Pandora was a 24-gun Porcupine-class sixth-rate ship of the Royal Navy launched in May 1779. She is best known as the ship sent in 1790 to search for the Bounty and the mutineers who had taken her. Her first service was in the Channel during the 1779 threatened invasion by the combined fleets of France and Spain. She was deployed in North American waters during the American Revolutionary War and saw service as a convoy escort between England and Quebec. She saw successful service as a convoy escort, but the end of the American war the Admiralty placed her in ordinary at Chatham (1783). Pandora ordered to be brought back into service in June 1790 when war between England and Spain seemed likely due to the Nootka Controversy. However, in early August 1790, 5 months after learning of the mutiny on HMS Bounty,it was decided to despatch her to recover the Bounty, capture the mutineers, and return them to England for trial. She was refitted, and sailed from Portsmouth on 7 November 1790, commanded by Captain Edward Edwards and manned by a crew of 134 men. Fourteen mutineers were recaptured on Tahiti, but 3 months searching the islands of the south pacific failed to find the Bounty and remaining mutineers. She turned for home, but in attempting to navigate the Great Barrier reef she ran aground on 29th August 1791, and sank the next morning with the loss of 31 crew and prisoners. She remains in about 30m of water about 140km east of Cape York. Build: The goal is to build a 1/64 scale reproduction of the ship in her 1790 configuration. Archeological findings have shown the guns and carronades with which she was equipped. The scale was chosen to match my previous build of Bounty. I chose to do POB as it is a fairly straightforward way of constructing the hull and I didn't want as a first scratch built to tackle the huge task of figuring out how to frame a hull. Sources: The primary source of plans for the build is McKays Anatomy of the Ship: Pandora, with help from Antscherls Swan class books, and my library of 18C ship books. (pics to follow)
  4. This is my first wooden tall ship build. I got this kit a few years ago as my first ship build. I found the instruction a little confusing and didn't get very far. But now it's been a few years and thought I would try and build this thing. So a few years a go I was able to get the the false keel and bulk heads put together and the reinforcement blocks on the stem, stern and masts pics are of how the ship is now I'm a amazed that nothing has been broken on it. One thing I'm not sure if I'm shaping the stern right? So any help or tips would be helpful thank you
  5. Hi All, Thought you might like to look at this model by Narim Maygeldinov its in 1:48 scale and its just amazing! The site is mostly in Russian but some parts are in English and the pictures say it all! http://forum.modelsworld.ru/topic8068.html Cheers Tim

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.
