Constellation - Posted: 2 months ago by Jerry Todd
1:36 scale working model of the 1854 sloop of war Constellation; sailing on Rock Creek Maryland, October 26th 2016.
I use a mixture of hardwood,wood pellets soft coal and anthracite depending on how much heat i need. Clearly the wood will burn away pretty quickly so i will use the anthracite for longer burning. I have a computer fan blowing air under the firebox which is why there is so much flame !!! I have yet to fit a rheostat to control the fan speed as clearly there is too much blow!!
Same here 😉 LF has her own top floor flat with two terraces, I have a ground floor maisonette with terrace / mini garden. Half the kitchen now converted to electrics and assembly workshop. 😊 Arrangement works very well 👍😎
This fantastic model was scratch built by John of the Solent Radio Controlled Model Boat Club. Here it is seen sailing in light winds on Setley Pond in the New Forest, UK.
She took about a year to construct and is now into the third year of sailing. The boat is based on the period 1929/34 when "Bobby" Somerset owned her, he won the Fastnet race twice and finished second once, infact she is the only boat to win the Fastnet three times. She is based on the river Hamble and is owned by Dauntseys school in Wiltshire and is regularly raced by the pupils there. The model is approximately 1:15 scale.
In 2013 the full size Jolie Brise celebrated the centenary anniversary of her construction by the Paumelle yard in Le Havre in 1913. The world famous, gaff-rigged pilot cutter was the last boat to carry the royal mail under sail and has won the Fastnet Race three times, including the inaugural race in 1925. In 2015 and 2016 she was the overall winner of the Tall Ships Races.
Jolie Brise is owned, maintained and sailed by the pupils of Dauntsey's School. For more information about Jolie Brise go to, www.joliebrise.com
