Eldrbarry's First Wood Ship Model: Artesania Latina's Swift Pilot Boat 1805
Status at January 1st, 2005:
The clips are holding unsecured lines.
As of December 20th, 2004:
The Swift 1805 Pilot Boat (my nearly finished project was actually started in 1984. . . .
After putting together the false keel, bulwarks and false deck, and a false start on planking, the model was carefully packed away for 20 years. I started again in the summer of 2004, beginning with the planking.
Some modelling notes . . .
- Helpful Article in Ships in Scale: September/ October 1985
- Note addition of gun ports with additional bulwark supports, and some rather oversized block and tackle. The wooden barrel also has been tied down.
