  1. Inspired by a large RC model of the Rattlesnake featured in an issue of Model Ship Builder magazine, I looked around for a subject to built and decided to built the ship in my own back yard, the sloop of war Constellation tied up in Baltimore's Inner Harbor since the mid 1950's. Some video of Rattlesnake Constellation was a sloop-of-war, of 22 guns, designed by John Lenthal, and built in 1854 by Gosport Navy Yard at Norfolk, Virginia; the last US warship designed and built to operate under sail alone. For a long time she was believed by man
  2. I am choosing this as a gift for my friend, Brynn, who is from Alaska. Couldn't find too many ships named Brynn, and i kind of like what is going on with this particular ship. Apparently, a sloop-of-war is not a sloop that I think of in the civilian or recreational sense (eg a single gaff-masted cutter); rather a sloop-of-war I believe could be any unrated (ie under 20 guns?) two- or three-masted ship. The two-masted sloops-of-war were typically configured often as either main-mizzen-ketch or fore-main-snauw. This USS Alaska is a three-masted square-rigged ship, was t
  3. I realized I had discussed this build but never posted it. Here is my 1/1000 (USS) Wasp Scratch build. The hull is basswood, the details are mostly brass, rigging is tungsten wire, the sails are linen paper.
  4. Hi, This little ship is based on a NMM plan for a “Unnamed 56ft single-masted Sloops (Circa 1776)” (Publisher Code J0520, Object ID ZAZ6496-8). Notes about the plans include “Plan showing the body plan, sheer lines with inboard detail, longitudinal half-breadth, upper deck, and fore & aft platforms for building two 56ft single-masted Armed Sloops on Lake Champlain. Signed John Williams [surveyor of the Navy, 1765-1784]. Includes a table of the Mast and Yard dimensions. It has been presumed in the pas
  5. As the planning starts, so does the log. With my admiralty hull finally back home after a month road trip around town I am more convinced than ever that a cross section is needed. With a variety of questions being consistently asked about the layout of the internals and how did this or that happen, the cross section would be perfect. Being a cross section it will fit on the mantle but also bring home the resultant size of the full ship with the full main mast being present. The first question is where to define the cut lines. After looking at the plans I
  6. this will be my first scratchbuilt project.based on a set of plans first published around an article in modelboats cica 1996 by a chap called peter danks. (myrmidon man?) apparently this vessel was originally built for service on the great lakes of north america during the america war of independance. built around ply wood bulkheads on a similar system to some of the billing kits ie in two halves. wales planked using 3mm x 4mm beech. all other planking in lime wood. various fittings will be in a mixture of other timbers including boxwood,ramin.
