This will be my build log for a 17th century Royal Navy Battle Station. The station is loosely modeled after a 4th rate ship of the line, HMS Mordaunt, launched in 1681. It is based on the excellent plans drawn by Jeff Staudt, and the model itself is one of three produced in collaboration with two modeling friends: Mike Shanks and Don Robinson. Most of the background information and details on research and development of the kits is reported here in another thread, so I won’t repeat that here. Time to begin!
