Continental Galley - Washington 1776
Author: Jeffru W. Staudt

Quality: Scanned pages
Number of pages: 63
Description: The purpose of this monograph is to guide you through the steps to create a model of the Washington.
General in nature it won’t get into the “nuts and bolts” of specific tools or procedures used to build the
ship. The Continental Galley Washington is designed to be built as a plank-on-frame (POF) model. By leaving
the hull unplanked this style shows the construction of the ship, various areas of framing and specific
details. If this is your first attempt at this type of model you will find it a relatively basic design with some
details of a more challenging nature. Using information available on the Washington, along with common
shipbuilding practices of the period, every effort has been made to keep the plans historically accurate.
How much detail to show on the plans can be an issue at 1:48 scale. This is especially true with small items
like the guns, stove, etc. As a builder you can determine how much detail to include in these instances. The
plans also include the extensive use of trenails to the planking. Depending on your personal preference,
you can install less, or no trenails at all to the model.
Above all else make this an enjoyable project for yourself. You’ll become more knowledgable in the
construction of this style of ship building, and with a little patience and perseverance create a model which
you can be proud of.
