This will be my build log for a project I've been building, on and off for some time.  The cross section is of the HMS Blandford, a 20 gun Sixth Rate frigate launched in 1720 and represents a small segment of the ship at the level of the main mast.  Included are the mast, the well and shot lockers, chain pump as well as elm tree pump details and weather deck details including 2 cannons.  The model will be plank on frame with hull planked down to the wales.  There are two decks.  As I usually do, I hope to use no paint or stain (or at least as little as I can!).


The plans are based on "The 20 Gun Ship Blandford" by Peter Goodwin, one of the AOTS series.  The plans were drawn by one of my cyber friends, Mike41 who posts here.  He did a great job.  Although there are some simplifications in the framing (no chocks or scarfs in the hull frames, for example) the plans are fairly close to the AOTS drawings.  The second photo shows the cross section's location in longitudinal view.

I would be interested in this build; if plans are available could they be sent to Bikerbob@magma.ca

thank you

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.
