Sultana – 9/23/13
I am postponing my work on the Bonhomme Richard to build two models of the Sultana, a colonial schoooner that patrolled American waters to enforce British shipping rules. I will keep one model to join my collection.
I typically build plank-on-bulwark or plank-on-frame models. This is my first solid hull model. It’s quicker, but less satisfying to build. At this stage, I have finished sanding the hulls and am applying the keels, stems, and stern posts.
The Sultana plans are very straightforward. I will do some modification, since I am familiar enough with the design to add details that were not included in the plans.
