HMS Royal William in 1719

 

Historical Background

 

 

The HMS Royal William in 1719 was the second ship of that name. The first HMS ROYAL WILLIAM was built in 1692 out of the 1670 HMS PRINCE forth. Rebuilt in this the extent of HMS PRINCE were retained, only the appearance has been significantly modernized. It was in honor of King William III. renamed HMS PRINCE in HMS ROYAL WILLIAM. The HMS ROYAL WILLIAM in 1692 was subjected to this Rebuilt in Chatham by shipwright Robert Lee.

William III. reigned from 1689 to 1702. He comes from the house of Oranien Nassau.

To make in England, he came through the „Glorious Revolution" 1688/89, at the Stuart King James II was deposed. William III. was married to Mary II Stuart. Mary II Stuart died on December 28, 1694th . After the death of William III. by Maria's sister, Anne Stuart power. Quenn Anne was the last British queen tables from the House of Stuart.

Anne reigned from 1702 to 1714. The English Parliament cleared the way for George I from the House of Hanover with the „Act of Settlement“. George I ruled Great Britain from 1714 to 1727. In the reign of George I., the second much Rebuilt HMS ROYAL WILLIAM. In 1719, she was subjected to this Rebuilt in Portsmouth by ship builder John Naish. You still kept the name HMS ROYAL WILLIAM. Rebuilt in 1756 during her next she was from a first rate to a seconde rate of 84 cannon built back. She was one of the ships of the Royal Navy with the longest period of service and was scrapped in 1813. Of the HMS ROYAL WILLIAM, there are three models in the NMM in London and one in Annapolis from the Rogers Collektion. Although the HMS ROYAL WILLIAM is one of the best documented ships of the Royal Navy, so there are very large differences in the models. In this I'll talk more about in the course of my building report.

 

My ROYAL WILLIAM is based on the plans of Euromodel. The keel and the frames are made of poplar plywood and the hull was built of pinewood. After a little bit of boxwood and pear only came to use. Now some pictures, I will soon, when I have more time, to write much more.

 

Regards Kay

 

I hope you understand my bad english, I will learn it here in the forum definitely better.

It is a beast :-)

 

I had the honor and pleasure to see this model in real life and it is simply wonderful!

 

Thanks for raising your colors here! I think she is proving more than worthy :-)

Very nice Kay !

 

did you do the carving decorations on your own or do they come along with the kit ? I like it very much.

A bit unusual but interesting way of doing the first planking between the bulkheads, it saves you thickness of the total planking build up on the Frames and provides a more true outside Skin. well done, and Keep the Pictures coming in.....

Good evening in the MSW world,

 

thanks for the compliments, I am very happy that you like it.

 

As already seen the hull has been built into the shell construction. Robert Volk had described it in his book, and I tried it on the trunk of the ROYAL WILLIAM and am very satisfied. Between the frames have been glued pine wood strips of 5x10 mm. The strips I have had 1 mm above the frames protrude, and then I sanded the shape of the frames. So I got a very solid hull. The hull is also a little heavier, but that does not matter. The second planking pear wood used was 0.5 x 5 mm.

 

@ Nils: All carvings are made ​​by myself. It takes a long time till I've finished, since I work with knives. For a ornamental pillar at the rear I have 20 minutes needed. Then there are some 80 pieces for many hours.

 

Here are some photos from the ROYAL WILLIAM arise. Tomorrow I will make again in the shipyard and take some photos of the carvings.

 

Regards Kay

Hello folks,

 

Here are a few pictures that I have photographed today. The weather was perfect for photography. There currently I carve the adornments of the starboard side. And then I look forward to the figure head.

 

@ Sailor: thank you!

@ Dafi: I rush, I rush :-)

 

Regards Kay

Kay ~ everyone else has used all the words that I would use!

 

I can only say that my wife has a serious complaint about your buildlog ~ ~ ~ I sit with my laptop only about 2 metres from my wife and as I look at all the photos of your carvings I keep saying "WOW!"

I think my wife is getting weary of hearing me constantly saying "WOW!"

Jim.

 

I cut it twice . . . . . and it's still too short!
