:D Here's my effort at the Mayflower, built it some time ago, came across it on the loft. I think I added the rigging and ratlines from thin wire.

Mayflower was somewhere around 100' to 110' overall. Let's call it 100' for convenience. If the model is about 4" long (someone can confirm the measurement), then the scale would be approximately 4":1200" or 1:300.

The length of the keel is approximately 2 1/2 " which would make it 1/528 :wink:

Or you could measure the ship from stern to bow. Then wikipedia the full size and use that number divided by the number of the kit. :)

The deck length looks similar to the keel length. The deck length is estimated to be in the order of 80' - 90'. The overall length isn't the measurement from stern to bow. The overall length is what you get if you "bookend" the thing from the very front sticky-out-bits to whatever hangs out the back end.

2.5":80' => 1:384
2.5":90' =>1:432

I'd be happy to call it 1:400 and be done with it. :)

Right you are. 1:400 sounds reasonable. I do the boats, you do the maths. :D

Isn't the back end the poop deck? :pirate:

...and fine looking models, by the way (trying to stay on topic). :notworthy:
