Having read this book actually showed me the way of how I will be able to build the model I allways wanted to build.
I have the Englsh edition - see attached.

Got a bit more done:

So far the whole plug overall isnīt/shouldn`t be more than 2 mm off the original linedrawings.
Added some better lights above my workbench.

Time to do some necessary alternations:

Additional 10mm Plywood cut for the sternplate.
Will probably need to cut out gunports and rudder-port (?) before glueing it to the plug.

Keel(s) and Stem(s) prepared, - outside curve(s) roughly sanded.

I think there may be English versions of these, but I don't have them. I'd like to see Historic Ship Modeling.

You should get it.
Even if you canīt get it in English - there are so much technical drawings and references about all these detail dimensions in this book itīs not even necessary to read through.
Helped me a lot - got mine when I was 17 -
- first year of appreticeship as shipwright.

It is basically THE standard book for historic shipmodel building.

May be the same?

On ebay the same book exists with at least 3 different covers - only in German!
And I remember mine originally also had a different cover.

Lots of closeup pics of the Neptune ->

thanks for that! i'm totally amazed at the fantastic amount of work that was put into the neptune just for a movie...it's fantastic too bad it still doesn't exist..nice lines although the figurehead is a bit much...most of the time a modern sailing vessel is modified to look like a period ship, which of course, bugs me to no end

Why do you believe it doesnīt really exist?

As far as I know, this ship was REALLY built -
not just a incorrect 3D-rendering on some supercomputers!
Read once itīs at Nizza, France - at another time at Genoa, Italy.
Does anybody know more about it?

But you are right - the figurehead is a bit too much.

Received my "new" copy of Wolfram Mondfelds "Historic Shipmodels" today!
Couldnīt wait to start reading/studying.

Aye, Sir!
I think I can agree to that one too!

As I thought before itīs the same book you have - just another edition.
In my book this pic is on page 149 - they added 16 pages up to that point.
I just try to figure out what the newest editions might have?

As for coincidences - my favorite irish pub here at Vienna is the "Old Oak".

Some questions came to my mind:
Do you know, where to get building plans for this "Royal Oak"?
And where did you get the plans for your "Royal William" from?
Appoximate prize for these plans?
And have they originally been to the scale you wanted/needed them?

It would be great if you could give me these informations.
Thanks!
