@byronvaw

This isn't a modeling site and has very few correspondents, so you are not likely to get any other response. You would be better served by looking for dedicated ship modeling sites and asking there.

Re: Names of English cannons

Frank L. Fox, A Distant Storm: The Four Days' Battle of 1666 (Rotherfield, East Sussex: Press of Sail Publications, 1996), has a table of "ordnance and manning" for each fleet. For English ordnance, the following mixture of names and shot weight designations is used (with Fox's conversion weights): ...

Re: French ships of the Nine Years War / War of the Grand Alliance

Answering this question would require a comprehensive knowledge of the ships, navies, and naval battles of the period and a lack of nationalistic bias on the part of the analyst. I have the latter—I'm not British, Dutch, or French—but not the former. N.A.M. Rodger discusses enemy navies in The Comma...

Re: Captain of HMS Victory in 1818

The fact that there two glasses with the letters ML indicates that each attendee on July 1, 1818 did not get one with his initials. ML = 1050 doesn't make any sense. I did not see a captain of Victory in Winfield with the initials "M.L.", either. However, when Victory was a flagship, Winfield someti...

Re: Captain of HMS Victory in 1818

According to Rif Winfield, British Warships in the Age of Sail, 1793–1817: Design, Construction, Careers and Fates (London: Chatham Publishing, 2005), p. 3, which includes operational careers of ships after 1817 if they were in the navy in 1817, Victory was in ordinary from 1813 to 1823, undergoing ...

Re: Thomas Lynn

He made post on November 10, 1756 (John Charnock, Biographia Navalis [1798 ed.], VI, 187). John Hardy, A Chronological List of the Captains of His Majesty's Royal Navy (1784) says he was reduced in rank by a court-martial in the East Indies but was reinstated in 1763 and was retired as a superannuat...

Re: Provincial Navy ships in American Colonies

I am currently completing a book on naval operations in the Wars of Jenkins's Ear and the Austrian Succession. I can't get into anti-privateering operations (I do cover a few actions between British ships and French navy warships fitted out for commerce raiding at the expense of private groups, in p...

Re: Working out weapon facings of 16th century Galleons

If you have not seen it already, you might want to consult John F. Guilmartin, Jr. "The Guns of the Santíssimo Sacramento" at http://www.angelfire.com/ga4/guilmartin.com/Santissimo.html This is about a Portuguese galleon lost off the coast of Brazil in 1668 and explored by Brazilian navy divers, 197...

Re: Images on ship pages?

That would be a huge job for Cy! If you want to undertake modeling a sail-era warship, a good place to start would be the "Anatomy of the Ship" series of books. They were originally published by Conway Maritime Press and in the U.S. by the Naval Institute Press and are probably out of print, but you...

Re: Working out weapon facings of 16th century Galleons

Demi-Saker, as I said, I don't know anything specific about 16th-century artillery, naval or military; the Anglo-Dutch wars are as far back as my naval history library extends (except for Mattingly, The Armada ), so I was using 17th century artillery as an example of a possible extreme combination o...
