Looking good Dubz.  I'm curious about the identical color schemes.  Was that your choice, or are both the Syren and Sherbourne historically in the same colors?

 

They look great, it's just a curiosity question and I'm too lazy to research it myself.  :)

It's a while ... hahah. Now that I am almost finish with Maria I decided to go on with the little cutter here before I start another one with Master Korabels AVOS 🙂

 

The Sherbourne is an older cutter with a correspondingly older rigging and topmast behind the mast. I was and still am very torn which way I should go. I got great help and information from Tony and Gregor. Thanks again for that.

 

In fact it is not easy to find good information about the old rigging. Petterson's book refers to the rather new rigging, the Alert basically to the old one but with a more elaborate rigging owed to the bigger ship.

 

There is probably no such beautiful 1:1 instruction. Also the measurements are "difficult", the plans of the Sherbourne are non-uniform and basically crap with the super simplified rigging.

 

Marquardt's book also shows the older rig but also for a bigger cutter. Well, I'm going to tinker with that now. Based on the Alert, taking Chuck's Cherful plans as a further orientation, I'm going to get a feel for it and hope to get a reasonably correct rig.

 

So first I needed to made dowels of pear. From square to octagonal to round.

After the Mainmast was mostly build I had to turn the Topmast.

Dirk,

 

Have you looked into the HMS Alert from that Chinese team of modelers, for your next model? It looks very promising and quite an incredible model to do.

I think a crucial decision about the rigging is whether you place the topmast fore or aft of the mainmast as it is quite different depending on the position. Both positions were current at the time. It may depend on the height of the mast. You might remember the discussion we had about this with Gregor and Stockholm Tar, who decided to put the topmast aft, like the kit and as did George Bandurek. However, the 1763 cutter I saw in Chatham had the topmast fore, as had the later contemporary cutters that were there. Petersson also placed his topmast fore of the mainmast in his drawing from the cutter in the Science Museum. So I decided the other way, partly also on what I saw were the forces on the top mast if it was placed aft. I'm not saying one is more correct than the other -- just that the choice leads to different rigging.

 

You can see these in my pics at

The full range of pics are also available in the Gallery of Contemporary Models from Museums and Private Collections, e.g.

Thanks Tony!

 

I'll go with Topmast aft as on the Hawke, the Alert and on the Marquardt Drawing. 

 

I will see where it will lead me though ... haha.

I went with the altered rig and topmast abaft on my version, which is in the gallery. I cannot remember now how I came up with the proper spar dimensions -- probably derived them from info in the ATOS book.

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.
