Pride of Baltimore II by Karleop - FINISHED - Model Shipways - 1:64

Recommended Posts


There is "something" absolutely beautiful about this build. Your level of scaling of so many of the perfect details make for

a superb example. Could be my favorite of yours so far.

Your base is an excellent compliment as well.


PS: though as you know I continue visiting your Vasa log for help (:-)

Hola Steve:

Thank´s for your words, and talking about my next project, sincerely I don´t know what to do: I have more ships (6) than space at my home and my wife insists than I must do something about it, probably trying to sell one or two, or change to my other hobby: oil painting.


Saludos Karl

Hola Michael:

Gracias!!  Really this model was quite different of the others I built in several aspects: 


- the model brand (Model Shipways) with its pros and cons
- the type of ship, being this much more modern than the ones I had previously done (This ship was a replica based on an early 19 century type clipper built by Baltimore city officials in 1974. She was lost in an intense blast of wind in 1986. The city then commissioned a larger sister-ship, and the Pride of Baltimore II was launched on 1989) 
- due to the above, the type of superstructure, hatches, skylights and rigging differs of older ships
- the form of presentation: without sails and with the foremast yards slightly rotated
- putting it in a dry dock gives it a special touch


Saludos, Karl


P.S. I am very flattered to know that my Vasa log continue to be of your help to clarify the complicated arrangement of sails and rigging of this boat. It must be said that you are doing a splendid job

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.
