Royal Caroline by marsalv - FINISHED - Panart

Recommended Posts

Thanks so much for all the pics. I have one of these to build and it has to be as good as I can make it. I have a lathe and mill and would never have thought to use them the way you have, I especially like the spiral staircase and rudder. I will be keeping a link to this build.

Lovely.. I like the stoppers on the anchor cables.  A very nice detail.

Thanks for compliment.


After front top deck mounting I continue with railing and cathead. I needed special planks with the exact thickness 0,7 mm for the cathead. I helped with my Proxxon milling machine. I made the cathead somewhat shorter, so I had to extend the cathead.

So I finally started to make the beakhead. RC model kit of Panart has a slightly different bow - dimensions and shape, in addition with my own mistakes (too raised wales on the bow), so it was very difficult to make the beakhead same way as in AOS. And because I did not want to use the system of beakhead from a kit I had to implement a number of compromises during this part of construction.
In the first stage, I made ​​the cheeks, whose shape and location is affected by the errors of the model. At the same time I made the sheave block and bumpkins that I will need for realization and position of top rails of beakhead. I used Proxxon milling machine for shaping of bumpkins

I have been tossing around the colour scheme for mine as I normally don't paint my ships, I like the beauty of the timber.

The Caroline will be special and needs to look it's best and colour will be required to bring out the full beauty of the ship. I have thought I would do pretty much what you have done but was toying with leaving the white off below the water line. Having seen yours I think that will work nicely.
