Blackjack77 Posted January 2, 2015 Share #1 Posted January 2, 2015 Hi, this is actually my first post on this forum. Been into ship/plane modeling for most of my life (mainly plastic), but I got into building wooden ship kits about 2 or 3 years ago. I've never scratch built before, but have been wanting to create a decent sized (26" to 28" from bow to stern) plank on bulkhead replica of Blackbeard's flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge. I have a 1:60 HMS Endeavour Bark 1768 kit from Artesania Latina that I received from my father as a gift some years back but haven't built yet. This seems like it would be a good kit to start from and modify into the QAR. Does anyone have any thoughts on this or recommendations or warnings or anything? Also, I've had a devil of a time trying to find anything definitive on how the ship would have looked outside of the basic info (originally a British frigate built sometime in 1710 as HMS Concorde, and was eventually captured and became a French slave ship before finally being captured by Captain Ben Hornigold and turned over to his Quartermaster Edward Teach (Thatch), "Blackbeard", who renamed it QAR and made it the flagship of his 4 ship floatilla before running it aground in North Carolina. If anyone could point me in the right direction as far as plans or anything to help me out or has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
