Very nicely done. The ratlines and rigging brought them to life.

The last things were the boats and anchors. The boats are made by Combrig, Modelkrak and probably Italeri - everything, which was available and fitting. The davits and small cranes for the anchors are PE parts by BJ-Modellbau. Alabama's anchors are from the same company, but with an added stock. Kearsarge's are Admiralty pattern anchors, this time PE parts by North Star Models with the stock replaced by a thicker plastic part to depict a wooden stock. The anchor chains are also by BJ-Modellbau.

Here Alabama:

and Kearsarge:

I will make better photos in time of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Cherbourg between the two ships.

fantastic builds! love every bit of those little gems!

I'm curious, why the lifeboats have inside area painted blue? there was a reason or it was a "fashion" thing of those days?

Thank you!

I am painted them blue, because they were described that way in the article series Reconstructing USS Kearsarge, 1864 by Arthur C. Roberts. Probably also the boats of Alabama were more colourful, but the description was less detailed.

Thank you!

After finishing four ships with sailing rig this year - the French 74-gun ship Marengo, the Peruvian ironclad Independencia and these two here - I prefer to built some models without sailing rig. The next models are probably the Polish light cruiser Dragon (1944), the British armoured cruisers Good Hope and Monmouth, the Australian light cruiser Sydney, the British light cruiser and Glasgow, the German armoured cruiser Scharnhorst and the German protected cruisers Nürnberg and Emden (all 1914, all already started)...

Next models with sailing rig could be USS Constitution (1812 fit), HMS Euryalus (1805 fit), some frigates based on Sané's 38-gun Hébé (including probably Austrian, British and French versions), USS Wampanoag (1867 fit, and perhaps her half-sister USS Tennessee, c. 1875 fit) or some polar research ship, e.g. Shackleton's Endurance.

I shall look forward to seeing the British Light Cruiser Glasgow being modelled by your skilled hands. This is a particular favourite of mine and I am sure it would look great at your chosen scale (the sponsons will set it off beautifully).
Love to see more of your work.

Quite stunning model making. Thank you for sharing the build process. The finished models are outstanding.

Thank you for posting your beautiful work here, both ships are fine builds and I have been lurking in the shadows watching them come together, but you have inspired me to have a go at an old Australian ship. Well done on an awesome effort
Cheers Callum

I hope I am out of line but since all of the original Build images are no longer viewable, I thought I would add in the link to the German build site. This link is for the Kearsarge and is done thru Google Translate. It still has all the Build photos.

Link: https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&sp=nmt4&tl=en&u=http://www.modellmarine.de/index.php%3Foption%3Dcom_content%26view%3Darticle%26id%3D3900:sloop-uss-kearsarge-1700-eigenbau-von-lars-scharff%26catid%3D112&usg=ALkJrhgk-B3UbSeewQxmZGbkHrJVXI-7vw

Thank You Maxim for a terrific Build of two famous ships.
