'Pandora' 1779 (With Plans)

Recommended Posts

I know there's a pdf file on this ship somewhere, but I kept getting a malware warning, so I might as well post what I've found directly.  I've also seen the Pandora suggested here, but with no plans to speak of.

I obtained the images from a website I've been visiting lately, in particular a thread of someone building the Pandora: http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/844-hms-pandora-1779-cad-build-log/

I'd like to post the rest of the pics, but they were all done to scale for the model, the above picture was before scaling.

Cheers

I don't see how she could have an 1815 armament and complement if she was wrecked in 1791. By the way, this is the ship that was sent to hunt down the HMS Bounty and her mutineers. There is a detailed book on her in the Anatomy of the Ship series. Pretty sure she has been posted here before, so you might want to search and see if you can combine resources.

These are from another member of the Porcupine class (Amphitrite) rather than Pandora herself, but close enough  ;)​ 

 

The later specified armament will be from other members of the class who survived longer.

This ship is in the game files and has textures and everything.  It probably won't be long until we see it, the Ocean, and Agamemnon.
