- Adelaide, South Australia.
This is how the ship looks as of last week, I hav'nt worked on her for quite a while, but have to get her finished, she is scratch built except for the cannons, dead eyes and blocks, she is 55inches long from the stem to the transom, 12inches wide and 18inches high at the transom.
I built her from Euro model plans which I resized from 1/72 to 1/48, and then using the body and water lines I drew the frames up, I used bulkhead type frames below the wales and double frames above the wales, with a belt of western red cedar between the frames at the wales level.
Full view, I don't have a lot of pics as this was pre digital period
The hull is planked with Houn Pine and all the wales are Tasmanian Myrtle painted black.
