Bruno,

Your workmanship is beautiful.  I do have one question regarding the rabbet on the keel.  Should it go all the way to the stern post?  Of the few NMM drawings I have seen, it usually stops several stations forward of the stern post.  See attached. Sorry these are not super clear.  You can find them in the collections section at the National Maritime Museum site for a clearer version.    Crescent is from 1779 and Mermaid from 1749.

Thanks for sharing your build.

Allan

Bruno,

 

I am very sorry, but I am not sure I understand your comment/question.  You mention a direct question so please feel free to ask or PM me if you prefer.

 

(If you are in the area of Croatia that speaks Italian, feel free to PM in Italian.  Half my coworkers are fluent in Italian.)

Ciao Bruno

 

There are a few that I found on the NMM website in the collections section using "24 gun" as the search term.  I did not see any of the Pandora.  Then again, maybe Pandora was not the same as the others regarding the rabbet.   No matter, your model is looking extremely good!

Hello Allan Thank you,I think that there is only a draft Pandora,ship probably is not made, however can not be found,otherwise, the keel respectively rabbet  go to the ends of the keel.
