Here is what I was able to make of the Navwar version of the 14 gun cutter. As with all Navwar models, I had to scratch build the mast, bowsprit, sails and yards.
|The kit (x 2). I separated the jib and fore staysail hoping to use them.|
Measurement of the masts
|I use music wire. Size .47 for the main mast, .39 for the maintop mast.|
|The built masts and bow sprits for both vessels|
|Sails are drawn on sketch paper and ready to be cut out|
|Sails are coated on both sides with diluted PVA glue and laid across curved shapes to dry.|
|The dried sails are then painted and final details added.|
Here are comparison shots between the two cutters built thus far; Langton on the left and Navwar on the right.
