Cruizer-class Brig-Sloops of the Royal Navy

Recommended Posts

In the piece that Chuck posted, The Brig of War Plate does show a narrow strake that is at roughly the midlevel of the gun ports.  However, it is not on the model.  I have seen this same narrow strake on other British 6th rate vessels like the Coventry Class of 28 gun frigates.


Very interesting discussion,

If you look at the plans for the Larne of 1814 or the Levant of 1713 the arrangement of the planks is very close to that on the Cruizer models. They are of course larger 20 gun, ship rigged sloops. I certainly am not saying they are in anyway connected just visually similar and serve to illustrate what the Cruizer plans would look like if they matched the models

Wood plan of Cruizer Class Sloop needed



I have been contacted, if I had something to identify a possible cruizer sloop wreck. 
So, does anybody know of a „wood plan“ of a cruizer class ship?

I mean those cut through plans were one could see the internal woodwork from?


A ship‘s lines plan does not tell much, if you have a worn out shipwreck to identify.


Any hints most welcome

There are Cruizer class plans on the Royal Museums Greenwich web site. However, to interpret the framing, etc, you need to have quite a bit of knowledge of wooden ship construction for the navy of that time. See, for example:

You could get this copy instead. https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30080716358&searchurl=kn%3DModelling%2BThe%2BBrig-of-War%2B%22Irene%22%2BA%2BHandbook%2Bfor%2Bthe%2BBuilding%2Bof%2BHistorical%2BShip-Models%26sortby%3D17&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp1-_-title1

While you don't save much money you do get the fold out set plans. These plans are full modeling size plans and are well done without the staple in the middle. :D

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.
