  1. Are these made out of card stock, or wood?
  2. I'd say put the launches on first as long as they do not interfere with putting in the crane. Otherwise: anything that sticks out.....
  3. Hi Doris, as has been said before, amazing work. Also, Thank You very much for this tutorial, I am sure I will be looking at it again when I do similar work on my models. Slainte ghu mhath L.H.
  4. I never found that to be a problem. Each eye is looking along a straight line, never a bent one. Wether these lines are parallel I leave in the middle.....
  5. Hi GAW, I have been quielty following this blog and have learned a great deal - and not just with regards to ships. I think a blog on your third version on here could be a good way of keeping this information alive and spread to as many people as possible, so please, if you feel up to it create a log for your third copy? Slainte ghu mhath

    Der Text war lesbar I agree that a lot of models start looking similar, so what I would like to know exactly is what is the dark wood (what species of wood)? Slainte gu mhath L.H.

    Hallo Merchen, I think it is so quiet on your blog because we are all in silent awa of your skill and dedication. I particulalry like the difference between the dark and the light wood. Assuming the light wood is Box (Buxus), what is the dark wood you used for the hull and curtains? Also, where in the blazes do you get your inspiration from. Slainte gu mhath L.H.
  8. Hi All, Jumping on board with this group project as well. It is my intention to buildd two kits - one similar to the contemporary models (i.e. partially planked), and another to fully plank and rigged. I guess now I have to wait until the kits are released and shipped to Bonnie Alba (Bonnie Scotland) Slainte gu mhath Landrotten Highlander
  9. I am wondering if the water has somehow affected the wood strips (ie.e swelling when wet, shrinking when dry) while the glue remains unaffected. Assuming your wood strips swell first and take the glued edges with it. Then the wood shrinks (drying of water) while the glued edges remain in position? Not sure if i am making sense here, but just a thought.
  10. thanks for the clarification. I have been silently folowing this log since the beginning and had forgotten about that.
  11. Very nice work, just a mall comment -peraps it is the angle of the last photo, but is the stern at an angle? Slainte gu mhath L.H.

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.
