USS Confederacy 1778 by CRI-CRI - FINISHED - Model Shipways - scale 1/64

Recommended Posts

Hello Christian,

Very nice work on your Confederacy. I am also building the frigate,although at a much slower pace than you. I was at my library's bookstore yesterday and spotted an old book on the shelf "Sailing Ships of War 1400-1860" by Dr Frank Howard,for two dollars. I bought the book and when I got it home I noticed something familiar about the ship on the cover art. Sure enough it was a painting of "The Continental Frigate Confederacy (32 guns) and HM ships Orpheus (32) and Roebuck (44) off the Virginia Capes,14 April 1781". It was painted by Geoff Hunt. I thought you might find it interesting,especially the hull colours.

@CRI-CRI, magnificent as always. I'm assuming your using tweezers along with a small metal level to get these so perfect in construction? Or have you made a miniature spacer jig for this size work?

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.
