rwiederrich Posted June 29, 2016 Share #1 Posted June 29, 2016 Well...I have been planning this build for over a year. Unlike my practice..I will not be modifying a Revell CS hull....but will be building a scratch POB model of the Great Republic from a couple of sources. Namely the McCann plan and those supplemented by the plans provided by Arthur H Clark, and drawings from Crothers, manuscripts and first hand wood etchings of the vessel. Unlike many contemporary replications...I will be following the descriptions of her rig by Duncan McLean and Richard McKay. Today I began by copying and cutting out the frame drawings and separating them into for and aft sections. I hope to get the plywood this weekend and then transfer the template to it and then cut out all the bulkheads. The model will be 3/32"=1' Here is an image of a engraving depicting the rig I will replicate. And an image of the cut templates.
