Pandora by marsalv - FINISHED - 1:52

Recommended Posts

I think it's very hard to add convincing looking sails to a fully rigged model. But you certainly make it look easy Marsalv. they look just right with the back lighting.

To Ryzuhr: Most information is taken form Anatomy of the ship PANDORA book. But this book does not include the all necessary information so I use the following books for addition:

James Lees - The masting and rigging of english ships of war

David Antscherl The fully framed model, rigging a sixth rate sloop of 1767-1780

Klaus Schrage - Rundhloelzer, Tauwerk und Segel.

Awesome, thank you! I will keep a look out for these to add to the library. I appreciate the information!

When this model is finished I hope it ends up in a place where lots of people can view it.  Pandora is way too beautiful to reside in your home!  The world needs to see this model.

Marsalv, any plans to show the Pandora in Rochefort in October? There would be a big event with hundreds of participants, see the details on the french forum. ;)

Dirk, thanks for your comment. I agree, the flags could be better. But - the flags are printed with laser printer on thin batist (two times from each side) and this was one of the best attempt after a long time spent.

The last part of Pandora constuction - two boats. Some pictures from hull making.

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.
