About the Queen Anne’s Revenge
The Queen Anne’s Revenge was a pirate-ship captured and commanded by Edward Teach “Blackbeard”. Prior to this, she was a French slaving vessel known as La Concorde de Nantes. She was constructed to hold both cargo and transport slaves. After being captured in 1717, Blackbeard modified and converted the vessel into his flagship. He added around 40 cannons on board and renamed her to the Queen Anne’s Revenge, in honour of Anne, the previous Queen of England and Scotland. Following this, Blackbeard made use of the Queen Anne’s Revenge to terrorise other ships across the Atlantic.
In 1718, the Blackbeard carried out a blockade at the port of Charleston for a week. Shortly after this, Blackbeard attempted to enter Beaufort Inlet, In North Carolina. During this blockade, the Queen Anne’s Revenge hit a sandbar and the crew had no choice but to abandon her. Blackbeard made an escape onto a smaller ship, leaving most of his pirates to defend themselves. Shortly after he surrendered and but later returned to piracy and was killed by pirate hunters in 1718.
The Queen Anne’s Revenge was not found until 1996, when a shipwreck off the coast of North Carolina was discovered to be hers. Many of the artefacts from this shipwreck have been preserved at North Carolina’s Maritime museum, which is open to the public.
Making of the Queen Anne’s Revenge Ship Model
The construction process begins with extensive research and planning, to ensure that the ship model is replicated as accurately as possible. The ship model is then scratch-built by master craftsmen, using her original plan and photographs.
The making of this model requires hundreds of hours of work before completion and undergoes a stringent quality control process before leaving the workshop. The team of master craftsmen make use of their skills and expertise to build the hulls and bridges exclusively out of hand picked hardwoods, in order to create the structure of the ship model. The plank-on-frame technique is then employed to follow the unique curve of each ships hull. In order to create a smooth finish, the model ship is sanded and varnished, before the painting begins. An undercoat layer is added, to create a smooth and even surface. The paint is then selected and matched to the colour of the original ship. The details on this ship have been replicated using polished brass and metal finishes. Each of these processes are executed in sync with the customer’s customisation requirement or matched perfectly with the ship’s original layout. The ship model is then packaged carefully, to ensure that ensure for a smooth and safe transit to our clients.
The Queen Anne’s Revenge model ship has been constructed in detail and is mounted on a solid wooden base with brass name plate. This model would make a stunning addition for any space.
This model is not a kit and is ready for display.
