    What's on Your Workbench for April?

    With a bit of a holdup on my schooner project, I have started the first of my ships from Henry's Kickstarter today.

    Hi Chris,
    As you will be aware from Raffer's post on the Drome, we are looking at ways of putting on the games to comply with Covid Rules which

    Take a look at Francois Pestel's Pourvoyeuse class--two were built for the French Navy, don't recall if either was captured, then two more improved versions

    181'6 vs 174'4 looks a bit short for LOA, possibly deck length on spardeck/f'csle-qtr deck?

    Without a drawing, interpretation is speculative,

    OAL would be my suspicion... somehow when we were researching Constitution a wire got crossed and she was scaled to 190' for main deck rather than OAL.

    The 'normally presented' BM for HBMS, would give a slightly shorter gun-deck length for 1502, on further investigation this should calculate at 175'4"

    There is that, but easier to rework masts/sails than fab a hull from scratch.

    We would need to watch the sail patterns of the MoW when turning them into HEIC because merchantmen did not set Royals as a rule.

    You could probably fake the four major size groups with a 32 or 38 frigate, a 44 to 50 two-decker, a 64 and a 74 SOL. Just need to sand down and fill

    Working that way would certainly cover a multitude of sins DB, and make it more likely that a manufacturer would warm to the idea of producing the moulds,

    1500 BM is very light, but the dimensions are very close to a 74-gun SOL. Typically, I would say a navalized EIM comes in one rating below a purpose-built

    Based on these charts, I would be comfortable with one large sculpt covering everything from Earl Talbot up. The question then becomes where we split

    1502 BM isn't consistent with something smaller than a 42 gun establishment ship though... but is consistent with something of the general form of a large

    David, Threedecks isn't always 100% reliable though. Ares uses it as a "backup" when better primary sources or research like Rif Winfield's

    According to three decks, the 1797 Ganges is 181.5ft GD, 148.67ft keel, 1502BM, with 30 12lb guns 'as commissioned'.

    Are those lengths Keel or Deck, though? HEIC also liked to reuse names a heckuva lot...
