        Starting a new project for a fourth rate ship of the line "Priediestinacja"

        # Type of craft = fourth rate ship of the line
        # A link to or scan of your source plans = Plan 1 Plan 2
        # Length along the waterline = 36 meters
        # Breadth = 9.5 meters
        # Draught = not know at this time
        # Armament = 26 guns @ 16 pounds, 24 guns at 8 pounds, and 8 guns at 3 pounds
        # One modification I will do is not to model the round molding detail at the second gun deck ports to allow a more generic ship to be used by all nations.

                      The La Belle, a small cargo ship built in 1684 that sank two years later on it's maiden voyage carrying colonists to New Orleans in 1686. She was part of a four ship fleet that lost one ship in the Caribean to an actual pirate attack.


                      And her plans, which I had to modify in MS paint to re-scale the three plan views to all be the same size.

                      Stats are on a French website

                      Translated roughly with Bablefish


                      *** La Belle 1684 to 1686

                      *** Type: Type: long boat or light corvette.

                      *** Length of the stem to the stern post: 51 ft.

                      *** Width of outside outwards: 14 ft

                      *** Hollow: 7 Pi 6 Po <----------?????? Cargo hold size perhaps?

                      *** Tonnage : 50 tx

                      *** Artillery: six guns of 3 or 4 pounders. Also a few swivel guns were found in the wreck, so I will add about six of those.

                      *** Crew: approximately 20.

                      *** Originator: H. Mallet et/ou P. Masson.

                      *** Place of construction : Rochefort.


                      Many models to download reference pictures of from this website


                      Work done so far by me. Note the little man in blue jumpsuit for scale.

                          a few notes on source material - there are a number of reproductions that are cheaply made and apparently inaccurate, and what schematics i have are somewhat incomplete. To that end the link i posted above are the references im using anytime content i have disagrees.

                            Large chebec/balancelle
                            I've spent the last three weeks or so working on a model to pass some time this summer, largely for personal pleasure, but also with a view to getting it in-game. It's hard to be objective about your own work, but I'm fairly confident now that I have the knowledge to clean the model up sufficiently for it to make the grade; or at least get help in doing so from the great people on this forum!

                            So here goes: I blended the Chapman and Requin plans, and faired the resulting hull quite a lot. Others have been working from these plans but I've communicated with them and we are confident that the resulting ships will be sufficiently different/unique, and provide an alternative to the small/medium frigates being modelled.

                            The resulting model has the following stats, and the plans are attached too.

                            Length of waterline 129 feet

                            Length of aspect 196.5 feet

                            Beam 31 feet

                            Draft 8.3 feet

                            Armament 22 8lb deck guns
                            2 12lb bow chasers
                            2 12lb stern chasers
                            8 swivel mounts

                            Look out for a discussion thread appearing soon, once I've had a bit of feedback from the SC regarding project status!

                            No specific date for the model, but it's been designed as the Barbary style vessels that prompted a French/Spanish naval imitation, and so should fit in around 1730-ish...
