  1. 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 in the Naval historical center which I'd love to get measurements of. This would be before her rebuilding and lengthening from 84.5' to 92'. I included some of the article from the Canney Sailing Warships book since it's a pretty interesting read.
  2. 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 never completed. -Alliance 1778 35 gun sister to the Confederacy -Warren 1776 32 gun Randolph class -Providence 1776 28 gun -Trumbull 1776 28 gun both were captured by RN so wonder if plans were taken? -Delaware and Boston 24 gun ships taken by RN (there is a plan is Chapelle's book figure 4 dates 1748. I am wondering if this is the correct plan for this Boston) -Lexington 1775 brig (I have seen models and plans of this ship but are they based on actual plans taken by the RN after capture?) -Congress 1799 38 guns while Humphrey's plan for the Constellation/Congress survives and a sail plan from national archives but do plans/details exist for the specific ship as built? -Enterprise 1799 brig this topic has been discussed before -Experiment 1799 brig sister to the Enterprise -John Adams 1799 frigate broken up in 1830 then according to Howard Chapelle rebuilt as a Boston/Vincennes class sloop of war. To my knowledge no plans exist of either incarnation of this ship -Adams 1799 28 gun frigate -General Greene 1799 28 gun frigate -Columbia 1836 Potomac class frigate That's most of them though no doubt there are more, such as shame much of the info of these ships has been lost to history especially since quite a few of them had rather impressive careers like the Alliance or John Adams. I am also noticing that even with ships where plans exist I see no stern or billet details for ships like New York, Boston or Philadelphia in Chapelle's books. I'm wondering if he just didn't include them or are there no records of those details via the official plans in the national archives. Since models have been built of Philadelphia etc. I assume they were. Thanks and happy hunting Charlie

  4. Hello readers of this forum, My name is Hjalmar im 31 years old. I Work with computers and at a brewery. Previously i've built a model of the santa maria it was my first model and plank on frame scratch built. Not nearly as nice as some of great ships built on this forum, but was good for learning a bit. Then i built this model of the half moon also scratch. I hope noone minds too much the topic is unfinished, but the ship itself is also unfinished. The rigging is most of the work still to do on it. And improve some details. Now im making a kit model from constructo. The Enterprise built in 1799 i believe. A bunch of pictures will illustrate my progress so far. I used epoxy glue to make a strong hull construction. Because the bulkheads were flimsy, not strong. I foresee alot of problems i will need to solve: - The planking is not tapered of bent (dont know if its called tapered) bent sideways. To make the planking lay flat against the bulkheads as they curve. I didn't see how to make that bend in the planks and didnt have materials in the kit to make them. So the planking is not correct according to the "rules". But i also cant do this with the second layer of planking strips. Its 0,5mm x 5mm sapelly. - Drill the holes for the masts without destroying the ship, and more even, drilling the hole for the bowsprit without ruining the planking. The last picture is the planking after making it wet to see a stain effect. It looks decent, but the planking is incorrect, but i dont know how to make the necessary planks with just the strips of veneer.
  5. Hi all. I am new to MSW but hopefully will abide by any rules. Apologise in advance if I have completed title incorrectly. I am awaiting my delivery of the Enterprise 1799 from Constructo kit number 80837. I also own the previous kit 80822 which does not have the colour manual. Hopefully I will start my build log with pictures very soon (hopefully tonight/tomorrow morning). After reading many comments about what to look for, I like the look of this ship the most hence choosing to buy. I have made many plastic, resin and smaller wooden boats including planking and look forward to starting this project. Please feel free to add any comments and recommendations you feel necessary and I always welcome criticism where it is due. Photos will be uploaded shortly

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.
