amount of detail in the Frigates of the Royal Navy Series The Naiad Frigate

Recommended Posts



I'm considering purchasing The Frigates of the Royal Navy Series THE NAIAD FRIGATE (38) 1797 Volume 1 and 2.

It looks like a great book but would like to know first how much detail is contained within the two.

How does it compare to the Anatomy of the Ship, the 24 Gun Frigate Pandora for example?


I am considering starting a 3D built of the Naiad with the eventual aim to built one using CNC and 3D printing myself.

Is the detail sufficient for that including the interior decks?


thank you for the help,

Well... I dare say that you build the ship full side using Ed's books and plans.


Here's the link to his build:  


A quick search shows other build logs using Ed's books and plans.

I have both volumes.  Volume I is primarily the hull and the second volume is interior and exterior.  I am extremely please with both volumes.  I will echo druxey in that this should have much more detail than the AOTS series.


If you are thinking of scratch building the Naiad, these books will be invaluable.
