Scratch-build a model of HMS BELLONA
« on: April 03, 2008, 05:48:10 AM »
In December 1757 a new ship was ordered by the Navy Board; she was one of the first British 74 gun and the prototype of a brand new class of man-of-war that should form the backbone of the British battle fleet.

HMS Bellona was a 74-gun Bellona-class third-rate  ship of the line of the Royal Navy. Designed by Sir Thomas Slade, she was a prototype for the iconic 74-gun ships of the latter part of the 18th century. Bellona  was built at Chatham,  starting on 10 May 1758, launched on 19 February 1760, and commissioned three days later. She was the second ship of the Royal Navy to bear the name, and saw service in the Seven Years' War, American Revolutionary War and the Napoleonic Wars

This site illustrates an attempt to scratch-build a model of her at 1:72 scale
