Admiralty Models has been working with a very talented 3D computer modeler who is building us a Swan class ship model (Pegasus). Besides the exceptional quality of his work, I can see the enormous benefit of a 3D model in showing how all the various pieces fit together. As the model's construction closely follows the actual vessel, it's build may be viewed in sequential layers. Our builder is precisely following the four volume Fully Framed Ship Model series of books, bringing David Antscherl's seminal work to life. In the near future, we will be offering the fully framed and fitted out comput
Swan class plans now available in digital format!!! Good news for those building a Swan class model or contemplating building one in the future. Admiralty Models is now providing the plans in digital format. With Sea Watch books no longer providing paper copies of our plans we have decided to make them available for download. These include the large sheet with the sheer, half breath and body plan, the masting and sparring plan sheet and the fully lofted set of frames, transoms, hawse timbers, etc. We have never done this before but there are many copies of The Fully Framed Model wh
I have had some requests for our discontinued photoetched sheets over the past few years. The sheet is depicted below and was designed for those building a Swan class model at the classic 1:48 scale. They are difficult and expensive to produce but I would be willing to do it one last time if ten individuals commit. They cost $60, plus postage. Included are door hinges, lantern brass housings, horseshoe and dovetail plates and gunport straps. In addition (and the main reason we designed the sheet) included are all the components necessary to build the complicated metal chain pumps (except the b
