Looking for HMS Alert plans

Hi all!
I am trying to find drawings/plans for the HMS Alert from 1777. I have seen a paper model from a UK store, but have found nothing similar in the states. I would licke to build in wood and make it sailable. It looks like it would make a great rc sloop and give a great looking model wiith out the expense (or transport issues) of the Suprise or Prince de Neufchatel.

If anyone has any information, links, or other ideas, I would greatly appeciate the help.

Thanks
chris

Well, it's list used for over $200 - but maybe you can borrow one from a library?

I'll look around and see if I can turn up her drawings in a book.

Roger Cole built a nice model that is interestingly, clinker planked.

WOW! That's quite a price tag for such a little ship. The paper model that I've seen was also clinker built. If you happen on some pics from other books that would be great.

thanks

Or, if anyone can direct me to plans for a different cutter from this era, that would be great also.

You might also look at the Continental cutter Providence;

greeting. I am a new member of the RC groups. I'm from Europe, Croatia. Perhaps I can help around the Naval Cutter H.M.S. Alert in 1777. I saw the neighbors, I believe the best model. won him the European championship last year. called Roland Vlahovic. http://www.maketarstvo.net/forum/vie...4464&highlight = http://www.novilist.hr/Lifestyle/Nau...odomaketarstvu

Hi Vic

She is a 38 gun, Fifth rate, Lively class frigate. Ordered August 8, 1805 and Commissioned June 10, 1806. Similar to Jerry's HMS Macedonian build and the Bacchante plan below.

Now THAT would be a nice broadside of working cannon! : )

HMS Bacchante


HMS Macedonian(shown in USS Macedonian colors(I think)






It'd be a big one in 1:24th scale. would be SO cool!! I'm loping at a few others too, but the Lively class has always been one of my favorites.

Kindest regards
Tim

A hostile cannonball heading towards that ship maybe.
Then this ladys rear end could have been the last thing you ever saw...
