Continental Galley Washington 1776 by Eddie - NRG's Plans - Scale 1:48 - POF Scratch Build


Recommended Posts

Hey howya goin all, this will be my forth build log of a ship.    :bird-vi:

 

I bought these plan from NRG's website <--- Click here, I got this to help support the site and give me my first try at scratch building. It is a good first scratch build ship to cut your teeth on, I do recommend it, it's not to expensive aswell, you get 10 sheets of plans with all the frames already worked out for you, you can download the timber list and a monograph on how to build her.

 

I will be building this ship just after I start my longboats, one thing good about getting this from NRG is the timber list is already done for you, all I have to do is decide what kind of timber I want to use and I've been thinking about this alot, Iv'e decided to use Castello Boxwood for most of it, and ebony wales and railing, don't know yet what to use for the decking maybe holly.

INTRODUCTION

The Continental Galley Washington was a lateen-rigged, two-masted row galley built in the autumn of 1776 on Lake Champlain at Skenesboro N.Y. On October 6 1776, she joined the small fleet established and commanded by Brigadier General Benedict Arnold. The fleet consisted of schooners Royal Savage, Revenge and Liberty. Also the sloop Enterprise, and 8 gundalows outfitted as gunboats: New Haven, Providence, Boston, Spitfire, Philadelphia, Connecticut, Jersey, New York, and the cutter Lee. Washington was among three row galleys built, the others being the Congress and Trumbull. During the Battle Arnold commanded the fleet from the galley Congress.

 

A couple of pics of the plans.

Hey howya goin Michael mate, nice to have you along too mate. It will be about two months to three months before I start her.  The timber takes about 20 business days to cut, about two weeks to get to Australia and I think about two weeks to clear customs if I remember right from someone telling me. :bird-vi:

Hi Eddie,

 

First time Scratchbuild eh? She looks a bit easier than my first one - 16 gun HMS Vulture :) . Nowhere near the amount of masting and rigging :) .

 

The only difficulty I foresee is the very bluff bow - it'll takes some serious bending to get the planks around. I'd strongly advise AGAINST using Ebony for the Wales - I used it on mine and it was a real pain to work with, dirty as hell to sand and it's VERY difficult to bend even around Vulture's sharper bow. I doubt I'll ever use it again, a better solution is to simply stain whatever timber you finish up getting. Staining MUST be done before fitting the planks though, a bit of minor touchup after fitting them is OK.

 

Ironically, my Vulture was the ship that Benedict Arnold fled capture on when he turned "traitor" :D .

 

Have fun with this build, I'll tag along. BTW - who are you getting your timber from?

 

:cheers:  Danny

Cheers, Danny

Hey howya goin Danny mate, yeah I know how hard Ebony is, I'll steam bend it, I do like a challenge, I'll have to make a new steamer set up my last steamer I left were I uses to work many many years ago.    :bird-vi:

Yeah I remember when you started that one, I was new to MSW forums, I asked you if you wouldn't mind me making the same one as I could follow your build as a guide for mine, but I never ended up make it. All these years and I still haven't scratch build a ship, I picked these scratch build ship because I didn't want to do any research on it, I just love to build. I was going to scratch build the Rattlesnake by Harold M. Hahn for my first one, there was these rooms on the plans I didnt know what they looked like I ask if anyone new any reference books on building her got not answer so I shelved the plans for now.

I was think of getting it from Crown Timber in the US, The Ebony I don't know yet.

Yeah, Crown Timber are about the best around now. I got some timber off them a while ago, good stuff and didn't take long to arrive.

 

I'll have a look if I have any Ebony left - should have a couple of sheets if you really want to go down that road. I still advise against it, but you're welcome to them as long as you pay the freight (shouldn't be much).

Hey howya goin all, I did these awhile back when I got my plans from NRG.   :bird-vi:

 

I had the plan of the frames copyed, then cut them up then scanned and printed out on ladeling paper.

Ones cut from the copyed plans.

591050aeabc83_GalleyWashington008.thumb.JPG.bc61be0d5153bab53cd76bdf616cb2ed.JPG

 

Ones scan to the ladeling paper.

591050b408216_GalleyWashington009.thumb.JPG.9611c82ac02a405bd1dd029c6db2e111.JPG

 

This last pic you can see the scans on the ladeling paper I pulled one corner off so you can see it's sticky on one side that way after I glue the frames together I can easily stick it down to them and run them through a scroll saw. I also have another copy to stick to the sheet of wood to cut them out of.

I'm doing pretty well. I've been away from the workbench because of family issues but I'm starting to get back to it now. I still need to build my skill before I tackle the Washington though.

The heart is happiest when the head and the hands work together.
