HMS Warrior 1781

This blog details the construction of the HMS Warrior ship model as per the Romero practicum.

The person keeping the blog probably (ok, really) has no business undertaking such a task and should be lucky if he emerges from it with all of his fingers and his sanity intact.

One should expect mistakes, blunders, pontifications, and occasional swear words (as necessary).


  1. Thank you for undertaking such an immense task. I sincerely appreciate your efforts which may (?) prevent me from making unnecessary errors and wading through the Hahn / Romero differences.

    Smooth sailing,

  5. Don’t know how often you check here since the last archive appears to be this past Oct. Pier Books, as you may be aware, is out of business. Do you have any info as to alternative sources for what appears to have been available only through them? I want to take time and go through your content here thoroughly. Right now doing a build of AL Swift just to get my head in the game after not building for several years, but gearing up for a scratch build of Rattlesnake with Hahn’s plans and any other resources I can come up with. This site is a wonderful introduction to what awaits me – thank you so much.

  6. Okay – here is the latest information I have been able to locate:
    Rev. Romero’s email bounces back and so does any email to pier books. Do you have any idea what happened there? I am also thinking that if it hasn’t been liquidated, I can help market and sell remaining inventory at Pier Books, since I live closeby in Kingston NY.

  7. Hi Bill, Pier books closed up shop as of the new year (2009), I believe they had a buyer for the company, but I’m not sure if they are up and running yet (I believe I may have a link here somewhere).

    I will contact you privately, with the lat known good email address that I have for the Rev. (it was good as of about a month ago)
