The anatomy of HMS Bounty

posted in: Ships | 0

This was my first “difficult” scale model. It took me more than 300 hours to finish it, and with it I discovered how little I knew. It was not just a large and complex ship, but a mix between ship and diorama, which taught me what life was like for the men who lived and died in it. Several years later, I used the plans to design and build a cross section of the same ship, that you can see under “Dioramas” category.

HISTORY

History

The HMS Bounty in a well-known model. It is a relatively simple ship: a merchant ship fitted with a frigate and equipped for voyages of exploration, a common practice in all navies of the 18th and 19th centuries.

It was launched in 1783.
