HM Cutter Alert 1777 by Mr. Hornblower - CARD - Scale 1/90

Recommended Posts

Good morning Gentlemen,

 

Well, for those of you who may not have read my previous thread (below), this is my first attempt at a scratch-build, using Goodwin's (extremely helpful) guide for the Cutter Alert of 1777.  

I have drawn out each individual scantling/rib (whatever you may call it) on paper, then card, using the plans illustrated in Goodwin's guide.  If using the traditional method of paper/pencil, be sure to have a waste paper basket nearby :)  I watched a video of a card build of the Alert (this one manufactured by Shipyard models), just to see the method of construction and how to go about it.  Each scantling was then glued to the main section using PVA.

So, as you gentlemen see below, I have now begun this wild project and so far, I am quite pleased with it. 

 

I look forward to hearing any advice you chaps may have for me.

 

Cheerio, 

Caleb

Nice start, but none of the bulkheads should stick up below the center 'keel'? Also, the third one from the stern look as if it's in the wrong place. Check if it is correct.

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.
