100-gun Ships of the Line

8 posts in this topic

The fleet of the Duchy of Grand Fenwick grows: Here are five 100-gun ships at 1:900 by War Artisan. I elected to omit the halyards and backstays, as I couldn't keep the lines tight and they made the ships look messy.

PDF by War Artisan. Construction and rigging by me.

 

Yes, I forgot to make a WIP thread.

100 guns? Methinks someone is overcompensating for something...::P:

Froggy, very nice. So six ships total in the Navy?

 

Any thoughts on flags or banners?

I know a way to make pennants, streamers, or flags out of colored masking tape and coffee stirrers...

Nice job on these!  The only way I found to keep the rigging taught is to make it live.  Small holes drilled in the hull and in the masthead allow you to use knots and keep constant tension on all the lines.

 

Waxing the lines by running them across a beeswax candle also help them keep their shape.  It's a lot of work to make these look good and you've done a great job!
