First please excuse the quality of my modelling. Looking at other Members wonderful quality and knowledge of Ships of Scale I know I could never reach their standard of perfection.
This H.M.S. Warrior, which was my second scratch build is when I started to be more interested in the interior than the exterior. The model is approx. 135cm long created without plans and with visits to Portsmouth for photos and brochures. Very enjoyable build, with starboard fully planked etc and masts rigging etc measurements from the photos. I'm still not very good at downloading!

impressive model!
I would like to see some close up shots
Hi Dave
As I said in my intro my skills are not like some of the members but I try to create a new view with this wonderful hobby. I realise when I made this model it had the usual hull, deck, masts and rigging but the interior created many more problems but interesting to try and solve them so I carried on in the next two models which I will download in the near future. It came to my mind that a project like this would be wonderful for some of your expert modellers who would be able to create a more exact model. Enclosed some close ups but of course they show the roughness of my work.
Thanks for the interest, Paul150.jpg149.jpg148.jpg145.jpg

Please show us more details.
Evening Zoltan
I have sent some more photos to Dave please advise when sending photos do I use large or thumbnail photos? I have no more photos or build log but it was interesting to think how to build A before B I built the hull, bulkheads with door openings cut out, false decks, triple planked the hull but left the exposed port side, main deck, masts etc. Then created each division complete and placed them in there places, then covered with planking over the double decks. I think I made that sound complicated.
Never mind, thanks for your interest, Paul
