The Pandora was a 24-gun Sixth Rate built at Deptford in 1779. The site of the wreck was discovered in 1977 and has been extensively excavated by a team led by Ron Coleman. As part of the renowned Anatomy of the Ship series.

The Pandora was a 24-gun Sixth Rate built at Deptford in 1779. The 20- and 24-gun classes were the smallest regularly commanded by a Post Captain and they were consequently known as post ships; they were also the smallest frigate-built ships on the Navy List. The Pandora is best known for her voyage to Tahiti which was undertaken to bring back the Bounty mutineers. His book on the Victory took nearly five years to complete and involved more than 3,000 hours of work, but resulted in what remains perhaps the most comprehensive documentation of the ship to date. John lives near Vancouver, Canada.

I currently own 18 books in Conway's "Anatomy of the Ship" series, and the books by John McKay are among my favorites. I agree with the previous reviewers who stated this book is a must-have for ship modelers and maritime enthusiasts. The amount of detail is simply incredible: from the detailed plans of structural arrangements, cross-sections of the pumps and steering arrangements, to the eight-page "rigging schedule," this is one of the most "complete" studies of an 18th century warship I've ever seen.

Unfortunately, the print quality of the 2010 edition (which I managed to acquire from a seller here) is all over the place. About 15% of the plans and drawings, including intricately detailed ones depicting rigging arrangements, are sloppily reproduced with excessive line thickness. A good chunk of the others are faded and washed out. It's a shame that the work of a draftsman of McKay's caliber has to be presented like this, but the same fate befalls many oft-reprinted naval references. What a shame.

In the AOTS series, "The 24 Gun Frigate Pandora" is a standout. Historical information gives a good feel for the ship and the times she operated in. For modelmakers, the drawings and hard historical information about fittings, masts,spars and paint schemes get you as close to one-stop shopping as it gets.

This volume has consistent and outstanding plan reproduction. Some of the volumes in the series feature lines that bleed into each other-especially in respect to the body plan where precise accuracy is the key ingredient to an accurate hull replica. "Pandora" does not dissappoint in this respect. All drawings are crisp, finely rendered and useful for the model maker.

I give it a double thumbs up, both hands, baby! Now go out and build a nice model.

I have several books in this series and this one is as excellent as the others. I them very informative and of inestimable value when making ship models. I would strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in this subject matter.

I read reviews by others and agree this is a great book to add to your library. I enjoy model shipbuilding and love very detailed books for reference. Book is full of detailed illustrations and some black & white photographs. No full color photos. As I said, great reference book for 24 gun frigate.

Like all Anatomy of the Ship books, this is a good book for model ship builders. Contains both detail drawings and historical notations. Recommended.

want to build a model from scratch. Starting with this book it is a distinct possibility.

Great book. Built a great model from it several decades ago...
Exellent book. I'm writing a fanciful story set in the Eighteenth Century, and this book gives me a good sense of how it was to move around such a vessel. I've been on a few and this help me (a landlubber) understand what I was able to see - and not see.
