  1. Hello again MSW, After finishing my first build (Constellation) by AL I finally decided on a second adventure. I finally mustered up the courage and decided to do a scratch build of the HMS Leopard. I had come across the plans and for a first scratch build it seemed to have all the ingredients to test my abilities. There seemed to be plenty of information available to guide me along with my MSW friends so I went for it. Naturally, I have the 50 Gun Ship book by Rif Winfield. I took the 1:96 plans that came with it and enlarged them up to 1:85 scale. The 1:96 was just a bit small to m
  2. As the building of my other model, H.M.S. Leopard at 1:80 took the best part of 9 years, I didn't want to take on another full-on model of a complete ship. So, since I have basic drawings/plans of Leopard I'm going to have a try at a cross section. As a section will require a lot less space for the finished item I wanted to exploit that and have increased the scale considerably. . . . and to explain about the unusual scale of 1:44 - - - I had planned to have the previous drawings at 1:80 doubled and asked for that at the copy shop. The enlarged copies didn't quite come out at twice
  3. Hi MSW i have a question about whether it would be correct to use a wooden shear pole at the base of the shrouds on my 1797 HMS Leopard. I have seen pics with wood and just a rope for the first ratline. Monfeld’s book Historic Ship Models shows a picture of one page 285 but it says 19th century in the caption. The futtock staves seem to be rope and not wood in the brief text on page 282. Can these be wood if the shear pole is wood? just trying to make it as right as my talents will allow. Tom
  4. With a measure of reluctance, but because I've been encouraged by one of the forum moderators, I'm making an attempt at creating a build log of my ship. I should preface this with a warning ~ and that is to point out that anyone viewing this should not expect to see the awesome build quality that can be seen in so many threads on this forum. Apart from a very crude attempt at building an (imaginary) ship a few years ago, this is my first ever attempt at building a model of a ship that actually existed. That said, I'll point out at this stage that there are, and will be certain details of t
  5. Hello out there. I am working on the HMS Leopard and I am starting to work on the bow sprit area. I was looking ahead a bit at the standing and running rigging to see how it works together with bow sprit, Jin and flying jib. My question concerns the stay sails, particularly the fore stay sail. The plans show it but all the reference material I have seen makes no mention of it except Lennarth Peterson’s Rigging Period Ship Models (pg 87). I am trying to follow Steele’s Elements of Mast Making and Rigging, Mondfeld’s Historic Ship Models and Harland’s Seamanship in the Age of Sail but none of
  6. Dear colleagues, although a member of this forum for some time, this is the first post. I started building model while hms leopard 1790 1/300 scale. i use drawing from the book of rif winfield. here are some pictures of the model .
  7. Hello, after I put off my Triton build I started a new project. Now I want to build the 50-Gun Ship HMS Leopard 1790 (POB) ,1/64 scale Therefor I bought the book The 50-Gun Ship from Rif Winfield. At this are the plans of the Leopard drawn by John McKay. I don’t make many words about the build of the frames because that’s often described here on MSW. Instead I show some photos. Juergen
