Fantastic Model of HMS PANDORA
Posted by crackers on Sunday, February 04, 2018 1:57 AM

While surfing the web, I happened to stumble across this French ship modeling site "Marine et Modelisme D'Assenal", which featured this awesome model of HMS PANDORA at 1/64 scale, made by Tiziano Gollini. As you will see by the following pictures, this diorama is truly the top quality of the ship modeler's art.

 

 

I wish my hands had the skill and talent to create a masterpiece such as this composition.

I found these pictures had to be shared on the Forum by viewers, who appreciate talented ship modeling work.  Enjoy.

Crackers,

Thanks for posting these photos! I have been working on upgrading the old Constructo kit of the Pandora, and it is most helpful to see what an excellent model of the ship looks like.  Perhaps the biggest disappointment that I have with the kit is that the bow and forecastle are dreadfully misshapen, being far too long and sharp. But, I will accomplish my goal with the help of fine photos like these.

Here is another version of the H.M.S. PANDORA, as seen on an Italian web site,"capolavoro del moestro ungherese" posted by Kip Scoville.

This model also is fantastic in the quality of workmanship.  Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I only selected the best of these series of pictures. There are many more, but not to overdue this posting, ony the most noteworthy are shone.  This is the ship modeler's art at the best. Enjoy

Perhaps, there are plans for the PANDORA, if enough research could be made to locate such a plan. Visiting a used book seller, the other alternative, is to buy the book of the Anatomy of the Ship series "The 24 gun frigate PANDORA, 1779", by John McKay and Ron Coleman. The book features a detailed outline of the building of this ship. A picture section with photos of a model of the PANDORA. A guide of the ship's color scheme. More than 300 prspective and 3D view drawings of detailed sections of the ship of hull construction, fittings. decorations, masts, yards, rigging sails and armament.  This book is a treasurte trove of information for those who have the skill and patience of scatch building.

This book is published by:Phoenix Publications, Inc., P.O. Box 128,Cedarburg, WI 53012
