HMS Prince 1670 by Mirones - Constructo - Scale 1:61

Recommended Posts



after thinking for a long time and being un succesfull with plastic-kits i buyed my first wooden kit the HMS Prince of 1670 by Constructo around May-ish from Spain. With alot of Pause in between my work sessions i finally managed to get the first Plank on.


getting started in May:


Sadly i used the wrong deck planks at the bow these were intended to be the vertical Walls :( .


June: after some break adding the fake decks and adding the first planks huray.




Sadly i later had to find out that the fake decks accidently shifted around 1-2mm to starboard wich is causing me some minor problems wich take some time to fix.


August - November: adding more deckplanks and the first Bulkheads/vertical Walls.




Later November: getting the first Planking on the hull.





i hope to get the basic Hull done befor new year. Some tips about steaming the Planks for easyier bending are alot welcome, the material is 2mm x 6mm thank you in advance :cheers:

Get yourself a pair of plank bending pliers, which helps a lot. Also yake your time and research at least two or three steps ahead before you start each task.

Yep, the Pandora was one of my favorite builds, I chunked the prefab transom and stern windows and opted to make my own out of wood, It turned out great. The Pandora is now resting in a harbor of someones living room area in Canada where it was sold and ship to, also along with the Bluenose and Mayflower.

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.
