A relatively small deep water draught and heavily armed snow, built like her much bigger seagoing cousins. Stern and quarters unusually handsome and elegant, decorations kept to a minimum as per colonial fashion of the day. She represents the vessel as she was originally drawn up by the British Admiralty, built at Carleton Island in 1779 and as she rests, unusually well-preserved, at the bottom of Lake Ontario.
She has been pieced together from the original Admiralty drawings and information from the actual wreck. Artfully reconstructed by The Art of Age of Sail .

This is a wooden model ...

Photo etched sheets :
...89,7mm x 282,6mm brass ;
...89,7mm x 140,7mm brass .
17 laser-cut sheets :
...7 large sheets ; 7 medium-sized sheets ; 3 small sheets .
Instruction booklet : new technique of instruction making :
...87 sheets of clear short text ;
... ...24 A4 gray-scale cad illustrations ;
... ... ...118 A4 color cad illustrations .
Designs; 4 sheets measuring 900x1000mm each, 35.43''x39.37''
Wood, fittings and rope are the first class quality .

Even though this model kit is fully complete and ready to be built out of the box, several parts to make construction easier are available for purchase in addition to the kit .
Addition , if desired, novelty in the Model Ship Kits' world :
...Set of HMS Ontario semi-finished sails by MarisStella ;
...Ontario 3D printed mold for Stern and (Quarter-Galleries) Badges ;
...Ontario 3D printed Bow decoration .

''... Within the set of the semi-finished sails, which modelers have to sew and complete, is one single sail that is sewn completely, and modelers have to add bolt ropes and other ropes on it. This sail is an example of a completely sewn sail. ..''

About the reconstruction
The reconstruction is made so every modeller can make some changes according to its own conclusions. Here are couple of words about the possible modifications.

On the original shipwreck:

- Hawse Holes – are not visible on the original shipwreck. They could be lowered between the Cheeks so that they enter directly on to the Gun Deck … or they could be completely removed. If they are completely removed, the anchor cable would lie over the topgallant rail, through the Fairlead for anchor hawser in front of the bitt by the Cathead, and go to the Windlass, to be stowed through the gratings on the Gun Deck.

In this case the following elements would be removed from the project:

Capstan, Riding Bitts and Bowsprit Bitts. When the Bowsprit Bitts are removed from the project, the heel of the Bowsprit should be extended so its Tennon would be located between the Foremast Rail Bitts on the Gun Deck. The Bowsprit Tennon bed would be created between the Foremast Rail Bitts and then the Foremast Rail Bitts would become the Bowsprit Bitts.

- The Belaying Pins could be completely removed from the Main Mast Rail and from the Fore Mast Rail.

The model adjusted like this suits the original finding of the actual shipwreck.

The other reconstruction includes the Anchor Cables served on the Gun Deck. The logical sequence is the presence of the Riding Bitts and Capstan. The only matter that should not be correct is the position of the Hawse Holes. It would be more practical to place them lower, between the Cheeks, i.e. lower than they are placed here in this drawing...

Finally, the Hawse Holes are drawn in the original drawing of this ship, in the same position like here in the project... They could have led the Anchor Cable onto the upper Deck.

Step above

As a link between easy to build models and more advanced projects, we offer a series of easy to build kits from MarisStella Model Ship Kits and The Old Seller lines. If you have already mastered the basics of model ship building, these kits will guide you into and through more demanding projects, that are not too complex for a careful model builder.

The "Step above" program is the next step for ship modelers who have mastered our beginner's courses at the first, second and third levels, and are prepared to start work on a larger project. The instructions in these projects are like all MarisStella kits, highly detailed, but they still allow independent thinking and planning. All you need is the ability to read blueprints.

The assembly kits that we have included in this program, which connect other programs from our assortment, are:

from the program "Masters of the Adriatic", Štilac 61 cm, 24.02'', 1:32
from the program "Dalmatian boats", Trajta – Leudo of the island of Korcula 63,8 cm, 25.12'', 1:20
from the program "Fleet of the Republic of Dubrovnik", Ragusian Galley 18th c. 78cm, 30.71'' , 1:75
and from the program "Illyrians, Masters of the Eastern Adriatic", Novilara - Picenian and Liburnian ship 6oo BC 69cm, 27.17'', 1:35 .

Saint Jerome 16th c. 68cm, 26.77'', 1:75 project. It is an exception to the entire MarisStella program and is a model of the famous Hvar galley. This model is a priceless pearl for any modellers collection. It was created decades ago by the old famous master Mr. Verle, a great ship modeler.

Advanced Work

In English we define the qualifications of the ship modeler to enable them to decide on the level of models they want to build in this program. They are: Intermediate level . This means a model maker should have built at least three or more models to a reasonably high standard. This level will enable the modelbuilder to choose models from the MarisStella list without any problems. These are all unique works that were presented to the world for the first time through this line of kits.

HMS Ontario 81 cm 1:48, 31.89'' ,an 18th-century British Royal Navy Snow Brig that played her part in the defence of Lake Ontario in Canada;

HMS Speedy 93cm 1:48, 36.61'' ,another 18th century British Royal Navy beauty. A well-known and attractive brig. One of the sips mentioned in the novels of the author Patrick O'Brian;

Barque 'Stefano' 112,1 cm, 44.13'' 1:63 ,a beautiful mercant ship hailing from the port of Dubrovnik. The vessel’s information comes directly from the notes of the captain of the time;

from the program "Masters of the Adriatic" we suggest: Trabaccolo 80,9 cm, 31.85'' 1:32 , ... Pielego 87,9 cm, 34.61'' 1:32 ... and ... Brazzera 72 cm, 28.35'' 1:32 ;

Of course, Saint Jerome 16th c. 68 cm, 26.77'' 1:75 is a special project that we recommend as a very interesting and beautiful model. It is a model with an artistic flair that is definitely a priceless pearl that was originally created decades ago.
