ARGHH! Plans needed for Mortar Vessel Convulsion UPDATED


Recommended Posts

My mizzen mast has broken below the trestle tree. I had to remove the whole mast, which necessitated cutting away a ton of rigging. Stupidly, I threw away the plans after completion (BIG lesson learned there). I will be doing a lot of rebuilding here.


 Are there any builders of this kit in the USA who still have their plans? If so, would you be willing to ship them to me? I will copy and ship back right away, and pay all expenses.


Otherwise I will contact Caldercraft and purchase a new set.


Thanks Mates.


Update...heard from Jotika today. Plans available at very reasonable price.

Do a search from the main page and see who is or has built it and contact them.  It's possible they haven't seen this post.

Don't scrap it I had a cat knock over my HMS Vic breaking main top mast, When moving it around I broke off the bowsprit,  I then broke off the upper most tops of all three masts at different times. which I had to cutaway rigging and redo. I was not happy with the ratlines and cut them all out and replaced. It would have been easy to toss it, this was hours and hours of work.


I could have done two builds of smaller ships for the amount of time. Upside was do you really want to toss it I think you will be proud of your patience to refit, and you will never wonder what if  if you send it to Davey Jones Locker

I'm curious does anyone have an image of the admiralty plans for the Convulsion class? Can't find it on the greenwich site would be interesting to study. Good luck with your search my advice is call them rather than email.

Build on hold: HM Sultana 1/64th scale


Current Build: 31 ton Doughty revenue cutter as USRC Active 1/64th scale (in progress)


Future Interests: Ballahoo, Diligence, Halifax and beyond...
