    Default Inspired by Jonas' Tonnants

    Following Jonas' instructions in "How to Elongate (or shorten) a Ship" and "New Stern Gallery", found elsewhere in the Chippy Shop, I have set about stretching a Temeraire.

    First, I remove the Ares stern decorations.

    Very neat amputation Dobbs. You could teach my ship's surgeon a thing or two.

    Bligh.

    Intersting.

    I'm curious for the final result!

    How did you remove the stern? The old freezer trick or some other method?

    I used my modeling saw. I left the flagpole in place to act as a fence to get started.

    I also used the saw to cut the two ships in half at the locations described by Jonas. I went a little oversized, then sanded down. I used 80 grit to start and finished with 220.

    I used the short stern as a practice for cutting the gallery off. That was a good idea. My second attempt was definitely better.

    You're not interfering at all, Rob. In fact, when I saw it come out that way I was going to beg your assistance.

    Some putty and paint, and no one will know that she's not a stock model.

    Those stern masks give a new life to these ships. Well done!

    Beautiful job!
    This is what I hoped for when I made that guide. Someone to mimic the principle and do the actual work even better.

    If you want to emulate a Tonnant you should move the mizzen a little bit further back. I removed the deck house to make room for the mizzen.

    Is that stern gallery a Langton Tonnant? I seem to remember that one as a Bucentaure. I may remember incorrectly though. I have both.

    What ship did you convert into the Tonnant Jonas?

    Thanks, Jonas! Yes, it is the same stern you used for your Tonnants.

    Based on your overlay that you did, I reduced the deckhouse by a mast width to move the mizzen farther aft.

    It is two Commerce de Bordeaux. It seems appropriate, since the Tonnants really were stretched Temeraires.

    Wow! Dobbs, it’s quite a coincidence to see you in the very first post I looked at upon joining The Anchorage. It’s not everyday you accidentally discover someone you’ve known since grade school IRL in a web forum you’ve never visited before. I am looking forward to seeing your next creation. You always were a master at Kitbashing.

    Firstly allow myself to welcome you to the Anchorage officially on behalf of your fellow sailors John. It is not often a shipmate of one of our more esteemed officers joins the crew.
    You should find more shipmates coming along to welcome you soon, once the gunnery drill is over.

    Till then sling your hammock, have a good look around and then feel free to join us in the Wardroom for a bottle or three.

    Bligh.

    Thank you, Sir!

    I am sorry for the untraditional hail, me not piping aboard in the usual way. It’s not everyday that you report to a new command and see your oldest mate standing watch on the quarterdeck. I guess I am off to the quartermaster to see about a spot in berthing.

    Fair winds and following seas....

    And Dobbs, you are right. It's the Tonnant stern clearly visible here:

    Are the stats for an Ares Tonnant posted anywhere on this site?

    Lengthened, she barely fits in the box she came in, but the project must wait until we return from our voyage.
