hello,I live in oslo,small world,I have some books about rigging to,and I find a little difficult to calculate the mast hight of diana, scale 1:64. I am planing to do some scratch build of hms surprise (ex untite,french frigate),I have the orginal drawings, and I was thinking to use the diana masting/rigging plan, with some modifications,dianas masts  is a little bitt high for my build I think. I wil just use the plans as a guide. I have a lot of books to,so if anyone have some plans or some input/info it wil help. And I will try to read a little bit more about rigging of 1700/1800 centry ship models.

thanks Helge,oslo,norway

Yes, it is a small world.

Have you got "The elements and practice of rigging, seamanship, and naval tactics" by David Steel, vol 1 written year 1800 , reprinted 2011.  ( ISBN 978-1-108-02651-2 )

I am certain you find everything you need in there

If it is HMS Diana frigate 1793 - there are copies of the Anatomy of the Ship volume for this ship available as second hand copies.  The masting and rigging are covered, but the are bound plans.

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.
