HMS EURYALUS (36) 1803 A Plank on Frame Model, Volume I by Allan Yedlinsky and Wayne Kempson
HMS Euryalus was a Royal Navy 36-gun Apollo-class frigate, which saw service in the Battle of Trafalgar and the War of 1812. During her career she was commanded by three prominent naval personalities of the Napoleonic and post-Napoleonic period, Henry Blackwood, George Dundas and Charles Napier. After the end of the Napoleonic Wars she continued on active service for a number of years, before spending more than two decades as a prison hulk. She ended her career in Gibraltar where, in 1860, she was sold for breaking up.
This is a plank on frame model using David Antscherl’s upright method. This book is part one of a two-part series. This volume covers building a model through the lower deck and contains 14 sheets of plans in 1:48 using multiple colors for easy interpretation and use. All of the frames’ drawings, showing front and back of each one, will be found on a CD in the book. They can be printed out from your computer on 8 1/2X 11 or A4 paper.
The text and photos will take you through the building process. Passages from the ship’s log and an actual builder’s contract are included.
