As I get underway with the continuation of this build log, I will hopefully be able to include some past photos. I've discovered that all my model photos prior to 2013 reside (I hope) on an old hard drive that is no longer attached to my computer. I had to replace the motherboard last year, and the new one didn't support the old hard drive. So it may be a while before I can retrieve those photos. This model of Oneida will represent the brig as she was armed in 1813, with sixteen 24 pounder carronades and two 6 pounder long guns. I also hope to fully rig her, but time will tell! Here is the current state of the model-- This post is a bit of a placeholder at the moment but I should have some more to add soon. Ron
Hi all, I'm researching the anchors for my Oneida (1809) model, and it seems to be a transitional period for anchors. Looking at contemporary models, most from this period show angle-arm anchors, but a couple are round-arm. The Hornet (1805) sailor's model, also an American ship, is one of the round-arm ones. Also, around this time the stock seems to have transitioned from wood to iron. In Chapelle's book, in the appendix listing spar dimensions for Argus (1803), it lists the anchors to be with iron stocks. It's probably my choice on both the angled or round arms, and wood or iron stock, but before I decide I wanted to get some opinions or info from anyone who knows more about it. Thanks, Ron
