You might take a look at a cousin; that is, another fellow building a ship of the line.  His is building the 130 gun Santisima Trinidad in 1:50 scale, but you might spot some things of interest in his project.

I'm always looking for ways people solved some particular problem that I have, or may have, besides it fun to see other people's take on a similar project.

Amazing build and in such quick time.
Thanks so much for the many photos, and explanations of how you have overcome the many challenges.

I am commencing to construct the J S Elacono 4 mastered barquentine kit in 1-110 scale.

At the same time I have traced all frames and false keel with the intention later on to construct her sister ship Esmeralda
for r-c operation probably 1-72 scale.

Cheers John

We were given a coffee jar full of original Victory paint while building our big 1/32 scale model. The closest match is Humbrol 63 Sand, which is very close to the original colour, the difference of a coat of varnish, if you know what I mean...

Coming on very nicely. Can I make a constructive criticism? Less Ochre more Black...




This is the big fourteen footer we restored for the navy earlier in the year, if you look closely, the lines of the striping curve up at the bow and stern. they also cut through the cannon ports. its not easy to replicate but I think it would be worth it. also, as I said above, increase the amount of black at the expense of the ochre and I think your model will look even better :-))

So far, all the models appear to be warships.      But if you want to scratchbuild a sailing ship I would really suggest a merchant ship because they are far simpler.      Hardly any fancy decoration and no guns or stern windows in most cases.     Here is the Norwegian barquentine BARDEN that I completed last week.    I know that you are talking about large models and this is a miniature.    But the plans are available large scale from Brown, Son & Ferguson, Glasgow under the name Scandinavian Barquentine.    I would think that something like this is ideal for a first attempt at a large scale square rigger.   It would be easier to radio control as well, because the main & mizzen could be left to their own devices and only the yards on the foremast swung by R/C.
