HMS Royal William

From Wikipedia and buildlog of KeithW


HMS Prince was rebuilt by Robert Lee at Chatham Dockyard in 1692, and renamed at the same time as HMS Royal William. During the War of the Grand Alliance the ship saw action at the Battle of Barfleur of 19 May 1692. The Prince belonged to the red squadron and carried the flag of Rear Admiral of the Red Sir Cloudesley Shovell. She was the first ship to break the French line during the battle.

Later she was rebuilt for a second time by John Naish at Portsmouth Dockyard from 1714, relaunching on 3 September 1719. She was laid up after her re-launch and saw no service at all until she was reduced to an 84-gun Second rate ship in 1756. One year later, she was part of an unsuccessful expedition against Rochefort led by Admiral Sir Edward Hawke. Her squadron, under Vice-Admiral Charles Knowles, attacked the Île-d'Aix and forced her garrison to surrender. In 1758 she participated in Boscawen's and Wolfe's attack on the French Fortress of Louisbourg (Nova Scotia) and an indecisive skirmish with a French squadron. The following year the Royal William returned to Canada under the command of Captain Hugh Pigot to join the attack on Quebec. After the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and the capture of Quebec she sailed back to England with the body of General Wolfe. In 1760 the Royal William was Boscawen's flagship when he took command of the fleet in Quiberon Bay. However, after a severe gale he was forced to return and shift his flag to the Namur. During the expedition against Belle Île of 1761 she was detached with several other ships to cruise off Brest and prevent a French counter-attack from there.

The Seven Years' War seems to be the last time that the Royal William played an active role. She was broken up in 1813.

I 'd seen Vic his Royal William on the forum Rcgroups, and the build was so wonderful that i knew that i must build this ship also.
 
After a dip in building boats over more then 1 year, i started the last month with the Royal William.
 
I used  plywood 10mm for the false keel and the frames.

Behind the false keel was another boatbuild that failed. A swedisch privateer. Must remove the plans.

This looks like another fascinating project for the MSW and I am happy you found my Resource file for the RW. Anything I can do to assist, please contact me through the Euromodel Helpdesk or in this build log.

Nice progress. I am not sure if Swiss Pear is a good idea if you are planning to make her R/C. Swiss Pear marks very easily.

KeithW :

 

 The Santisima trinidad was painted with humbrol paint.

 

Now I want to really just plain wood.

 

Vic built his ship also with pear, therefore this choice.

 

What would you use ??

 

 

ps: the pear would by painted with G4 , a colorless varnish.

 

 

Pete:

Found you resourcefile a time ago. Becaus i build this ship Rc, my approce of the building is differnt.

 

My next step is the first planking and the rudder and to make everything rechabel and functionel. Once this is don, I need your resourcefile much more.

thank you Greg

 

 

the progress of the last month.

 

finishing the first planking and putting the lines on the hull so i can check of everything is still ok.

 

On my stern there is a different of a few millmeters. In the kit the frames are 6mm thick , i used +/- 9mm.

this give a mistake of 1.5mm, not much , but to much for the basic to build on.
