HMS Winchelsea 1764 by ASAT 1/48

Recommended Posts

Signing on for this awesome opportunity- I plan on building her with Pear and Boxwood, going to use Chris L Bren’s Confederacy as inspiration and imitation. 😎  I will probably use every laser advantage that I can’t cut using my scroll saw,   mostly in Cherry I think, even if it’s just to use them as templates to remake from Pear.

For a lot of those parts....the cherry will be indistinguishable from pear.   The fittings will have such small parts.....like the ships wheel for example, that the cherry version will blend in as if it were pear.   Same is true for the lantern, pumps, qgallery and stern parts like the window frames.  You will only have to worry about the big stuff for the most part.  You might even be able to use the deck beams in cherry and just plank with pear strips.   So once you get past chapter three it should be smooth sailing.

That’s kinda what I was planning on although I might like the contrast of the cedar for the window frames and other accents at the stern and head.  I asked some other ?? On the plans discussion thread....  thanks!!

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.
