    If I had my way, I'd kickstart us by having Ares partner with Rod Langton and basically mirror his entire catalog, then build out from there.

    To be honest, I'm mainly keying on the stern galleries. Hopefully this only impacts "planned" and not "already cut"... my own plan is I'm gonna push Ares hard on the biggest open-gallery Second Rate...

    Flag on the play, the Neptunes were redesigned with enclosed galleries so that's three more.

    So here's the bad news, guys... Ares got it backward. The SGN108 sculpt really only works well for nine ships, none of whose names it bears:
    *1803 rebuild HMS Victory
    *1805 HMS Ocean
    *1808 HMS...

    Minor update, with an apology to Ares... Ville de Paris and Hibernia, per BWAS 1714-1792, are successive stretches of Royal Sovereign (each stretch gaining ten guns over the previous). So I will...

    Almost all of the 98s, shapewise, seem to have a more pronounced "banana" curve along the topline than the 100's, except 1810 Boyne for obvious reasons.

    For Henslow, I'm only going to compare the earlier Ville de Paris.

    I doubt Slade cross-pollinated between his 1st and 2nd Rates, but I'll put the drawings up for comparison anyway. We might as well not bother with the Barfleurs, though--they were designed after the...

  14. Stretching Sculpts: SGN108 and SGN201 British First Rates

    Since SGN108 and SGN201's sculpts are both based on HMS Victory, I'm addressing them as a single "merged" sculpt with High End and Low End versions.

    First, let's start by comparing the ships that...
