[WIP] Swedish Privateer 12 guns 3D model (Completed 18 jan 2016)

Recommended Posts

I've been working on a new ship and thought I'd share it with you guys, it's a 12 gun Swedish privateer and boy is it a beauty.

It's the ship in this post : http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/4142-swedish-privateer-ship-12-guns-with-plans/

Here is where I'm at atm and I'll finish it in the next couple of days.

The colors are just a prototype and so is the wood texture, this isn't unwrapped yet.

it's just there to give a basic idea of how the ship would look colored.

 

to do list:

-bow

-stern windows

-rudder

-gratings

-some details on the side

Ah, one of my favourites of the ANM! Good choice and very nice model :)

 

By the way, how´s your Proserpine coming along?

A swedish ship would be indeed a nice addition to the game. So far we have no Russian Nation but plenty of Russian Ships.

UPDATE:

Got a lot of work done on this ship and am close to finishing it.

I only need to fit windows on the stern and make a hole for the rudder so that's probably something I'll finish tonight.

Nice work, Freddy! :) Could you give me a few pointers on how to make a ship 'dev-ready'? Even though it may not be the most desirable ship, I'd like to finish my yacht, so I could maybe move on to a bigger and more desirable ship. I work in Blender though

nice my favorite type ship where did you find the information on the masting or the interior? I want to do one in 1/24th scale for r/c but cant seem to find what the proper length was or info on interior or masting

Dimensions for this ketch are 83' length p/p, 22 3/5' breadth moulded. The sail plan for this type of vessel is on plate LXII of the Architectura Navalis Mercatoria, more info on how to calculate mast lengths are to be found in the corresponding treatise by af Chapman (link). One thing to watch out for:  a swedish huqvert/ketch would usually have a loose-footed gaff sail on the main mast.

The deck lay-out needs to reconstructed by using other, more detailed plans for a contemporary, similiar-sized ketch, like those for the british Speedwell or Cruizer (both 1752, IIRC) or the danish Amager (1759)  or Echo (1773).
