3 1/2 year build of Model Shipway's Charles W. Morgan. Aside from the keel and bulkheads, a few laser cut pieces for crosstrees and rails, and some cast metal bits, this is largely "here's some wood, make it look like this" kind of kit.

My first fully rigged ship model, so a more than a bit of a challenge. I'm pleased with how it all worked out, although as my skills improved I would have done some things differently and better than I did when starting.

    • Very impressive - gives an idea of what these ships looked like under full sale.

    • Thank you.  This model was built a long time ago.  As it was, I think, my first plank on bulkhead build, I followed the instructions and used provided nails to fix the first planking: my first and final attempt to use nails on a hull (that had to be sanded afterwards) other than decorative.
       
      By the way, Artesania used to have a larger model of Pen Duick in their catalogue, but this has presumably been reserved for the French market.
       
      You would never believe it, but I restarted my building of  the Dutch flute, which I had given up some 6 or 7 years ago.  Not an easy planking job, as you may be aware, but I managed it and am now finishing the hull (rudder, chain plates, decoration), all items that have been either replaced or deeply modified from the original kit.
       
      Good luck with your project(s)

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
