Hello Model Friends.

After much research and more considerations,
I decided to build the model of the " ROYAL CAROLINE 1749".

The history of the ROYAL CAROLINE has been written x times,
so I'll give up on more details.

After the sparse construction drawings, as well as various to scale without
drawings in the book by AotS I have strong doubts about the success
of the project, but I try it anyway.

The plan drawings by Boudriot, Delacroix from the ANCRE publishing house,
on the other hand, are top class in their own right, i very first cream.

Thanks Mike for the help of the frame drawings.

To the model:
Scale: 1/48
Wood: German Elsbeere- Swiss pear
Overall lenght: 655,0 mm

I will build the model with visible frames from the second barwood,
as well as the interior.
I have already installed the "backbone" of the model on/in the slipway/ building board.
There are no photos of the individual parts, smoothly forgotten.
Next step is the construction of forty-five douple frames,
each frame consists of twelve parts, so I am busy in the near future.

Hallo Karl,

I am happy, that you finally decided to show us your built of the Royal Caroline - I am very interested in your built and your further investigations.

For everybody interested, we have a special topic related to the history as well as the available contemporary drawings here on SOS in the area "Ship History and Research":

https://shipsofscale.com/sosforums/...lotte-1750-1820-royal-yacht-with-8-guns.2057/

I am looking forward

BTW: I am happy that we will meet personally in 2 weeks, so we can talk also about this vessel and model :cool:

ROYAL CAROLINE 1749,
I have succeeded in acquiring the original Italian, barely available,
rare edition of the book, with all plan drawings.
Compared to the book by AotS, it has the advantage that all drawings
are shown in large format on a scale of 1:48.

Unfortunately, my previos frame construction was built without the required
thickness for the chamfers of the individual frames.
Consequently, these were too thin after straightening/ grinding.
The result is garbage, and complete new construction.

Karl

Hallo Karl, very good progress, especially you did the work already the second time.
Please check the frame 6 counted from the left ..... it is looking a little bit strange in the area next to the keel.
But it could be also a problem with the perspective view with the photo

Hi Uwe,
the frame was corrected after the photo.
