Good evening all modellers!


I am not sure if this has been mentioned here before,  but if so please forgive me,  as I did not see it.


I think that many of you will be interested in a project to build a full-size replica of the Lenox,  a 70 gun warship,  which was one of the 30 ships programme from 1677. 


Richard Endsor,  whose books on Restoration warships are a wealth of beautifully illustrated detail,  is one of, or the, founding member(s) The project aims to build the ship in one of the original dry-docks at the former Deptford Royal Dockyard on the River Thames in London.  The project is now well under way,  although it will probably be some years before the keel is laid.


Search for 'The Lenox project' for more information.


I sincerely hope that the project continues to move forward,  and is successful.


All the best,


Mark P

Previously built models (long ago, aged 18-25ish) POB construction. 32 gun frigate, scratch-built sailing model, Underhill plans.

2 masted topsail schooner, Underhill plans.


Started at around that time, but unfinished: 74 gun ship 'Bellona' NMM plans. POB 


On the drawing board: POF model of Royal Caroline 1749, part-planked with interior details. My own plans, based on Admiralty draughts and archival research.
