This is great - A very good service by @CAFmodel
OMG that's brilliant regarding the sweep ports, I never even thought of that approach. On all three of my builds my sweep ports are square (somewhat) and roughly the same size (not really). this way they are truly the same size and perfectly square. OK so now I know how to approach it for the next build.
Is it the HMS Medea launched in 1778?Hello Brian
My plans don't show the placement for the sweeps but I know of several instances when they were used in HMS Medea to escape the enemy.
If you have the time could you please let me know where they were placed in relation to the gun ports and how many there were?
A full length image of one side of your Enterprise would be great. I could calculate from that.
Thanks UweIs it the HMS Medea launched in 1778?
If yes, there is a drawing existing where the sweep ports are exactly shown
