  1. There is also a second one : https://ancre.fr/en/monograph/92-s-caterina-pointu-mediterraneen-1759.html Should be something for everyone. Either a humblef ishing vessel or half of France's naval budget in a single ship
  2. Thanks for the answer! Don't get me wrong, the Mamoli kits are nice but a well done Staatenjacht would be a league of it's own
  3. What happened to this kit? Was it ever released or is it still in development?
  4. I kind of like the lines for this nice little vessel and so i wonder, is there any notable difference in quality between these two kits?
  5. My apologies for the semi necro but when will this nice kit become available for purchase?
  6. This is frankly amazing work. The hull by itself is a work of art but that admiral's cabin with it's painting and especialy the floortiles is downright breathtaking.
  7. It's of course entirely up to you to which scale you wish to build but i think one can build too large. At 1:12 the ship might start to lose it's unique charm of being a model and might be in danger of being perceived as overly large. Your Fleuron, while certainly on the large side, was a piece of the finest ship modelling i have ever seen, partly because of your fine craftmanship but also because she was still recognisable as a model and not a threat to the royal navy
  8. Looking forward to your 74 at 1:24. Your Fleuron was already among the most impressive ship models i have seen on this forum. Yet i wonder, where on earth do you plan to store a 3m long ship model?
  9. Are these the diagonals (example from Mahuna's Dunbrody thread) we are speaking about?
  10. Thanks for the answer but im not quite certain how these proof diagonals work. Can you please elaborate?
  11. Hi, I once again need your advise. After playing a bit with CAD i tried to somehow get Boudriot's Jacinthe plans working (probably for the 192th time ) for me. Im not even certain if i ever use them to build something but recreating waterlines (by drawing frames based on Boudriot's lines, then "correcting them" and finaly drawing my own waterlines based upon the new frames which then are used to mutualy correct each other) can be a joy on it's own. Tbh, i just wanted to know if my newly drawn waterlines appear feasable or if i have failed to notice something. Thanks in advance, Daniel
  12. Ancre sells two monographs for merchant vessels, the Mercure from 1730 and the Boulogne from 1759. The problem is that both designs seem to have used double frames so they might not be what you are looking for.
  13. It's a student version of autocad 2014 so i believe it has but truth to be told, i barely manage to understand it's 2dimensional capabilities My plan to check if im doing right is to measure the frames's outer lines at one, two and three centimeters and basicaly recreate a simple half breath plan. If the resulting waterlines are halfway harmonous then all should be well.
  14. Thanks for the answers! Im not completely certain if im on the right track but the few frames i have managed to loft so far look promising. Once i have a few more together i can check if it all fits. I have added an example frame.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
