  1. When I built my first model of Bounty in 1983 from a Billings kit I paid little attention to the original draught. I built another for Australia post in 1988. At that time I pondered the construction over the rudder trunk and concluded that because the great cabin had been taken over by the proposed breadfruit pots, they put the officers head over the rudder trunk. None the less I left the construction off the model. In recent times it has been accepted that the construction was a flag locker. Recently I found a draught of HMS Providence. (1791) This was the second ship sent to collect breadfruit. She was also fitted out to carry breadfruit in the great cabin. Although the rudder trunk did not penetrate completely through the cabin, the officers heads (perhaps latrines would sound better) were removed and relocated. So the Providence was provided with a twin "flag locker" above the rudder post. Complete with 2 seats of ease!!. See the draught, it cannot be anything else. They were probably equiped with containers that could be emptied. So on Bounty, my proposition is that the construction over the rudder trunk was a head. And given that the centre window was a blank, (have a look at the pots around the enclosed trunk) it may have been the naval equivalent of what we call here in OZ "a long drop" Here are some pics. The ships are similar to Bounty. I have attached them to show the canvas chute from the officer’s head in the great cabin. This would suggest that the window on the port side would be blocked by enclosing walls of the head. There are many similar examples in the works of J. J. Baugean. Regards Allan
  2. I decided to add my build log of the AMATI - Bounty 1787 which was my 3rd Build. I jumped from the Lady Nelson to the Bounty and it was tough at times due to lack of instructions that I assumed would be there. I suppose going from a level 2 type kit to a level 4 means that you don't always need the instructions as detailed and that you would already know what to do. Anyway with help from the build logs on NRG and Donny at Ships of Scale, I persevered thru it and about year later happy to have it completed and shown proudly in my entrance hall. Current Build: BlueNose II by Artesenia Latina Previous Builds: Lady Nelson 1:64 - Victory Model Previous Builds: Virginia 1819 1:41 -Artesenia Latina Next Build : Amerigo Vespucci 1:84 - Panart Dry fitting the keel. This re-enforcing needs lots of sanding. Start of Deck Planking Using Balsa wood to round out the bow. Planking starting to take shape Completed First Planking Added Deck and Trim. Completed 2nd Planking and start of waterline and . Lo Deck Filling out. Looking good at this point. Stern Naming Finally Completed. I did not add sails or furled sails which I was considering.

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.
