Mfelinger Posted November 29, 2014 Share #1 Posted November 29, 2014 (edited) Hello everyone, A few years ago I made the fishing and racing schooner Bluenose in the scale of 1:50. Here I will show you all the phases of making the model. That ship is the most famous but here are some basic data: Designed by William Roue and built by Smith and Rhuland, Bluenose was launched at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on August 26, in 1921. After a season fishing on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland under the command of Angus Walters Bluenose was the next 17 year won in the International Fishermen's Trophy competition. In 1942 she was sold to the West Indies Trading Co. Her life ended on a reef off Haiti on January 28, in 1946. Displacement: 258 tonnes Length: 49 m (160 ft 9 in) o/a 34 m (111 ft 7 in) LWL Beam: 8 m (26 ft 3 in) Draft: 5 m (16 ft 5 in) Mainmast, height from deck 38 m (124 ft 8 in) Foremast, height from deck 36 m (118 ft 1 in) Sail area 1,036 m2 (11,150 sq ft) Mainsail area 386 m2 (4,150 sq ft Bluenose photo: my drawings: Matija Edited December 10, 2014 by Matija tasmanian, Elia, Mirabell61 and 5 others 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
