  1. Part 9: Thick stuff inner planking and inner planking To determine the height of the deck beam clamps, I lay a lath on top of the wales from one side to the other. Below the lath I hold a 6,7 mm thick spacer and glue the clamp under it. Under the deck beam clamp come two inner wales. There is a narrow space between the two for ventilation. The inner thick stuff consists of three oak planks. The whole of the structural inner planking. I will leave out some of the hull planking at port side of the model to keep the frames visual, therefore it is now time to stain those frames dark. G.L.

  2. John and Michael, thanks for your encouraging words. Here some more progress: Part 8: Thick stuff outer planking Placing the garboard strake The thick stuff over floor heads The wales consist of four oak planks.
  3. Thanks Michael, Patrick and the likers, Next item is the keelson: Part 6: The keelson The keelson is made of oak. The notches for the frames are made in the same way as I did for the keel. The keelson is glued in place. The mast step is also placed. G.L.

    Minder seems to me a demanding little man, but I like him. G.L.
  5. All 14 frames are placed on the keel. G.L. Completed projects: HMS Triton cross section - FINISHED - Scale 1:24 Current projects: Oostends schipje (Ostend shrimper) - scale 1:20 Cross section Fishing Smack - Scale 1/20, POF, approx. 1920
  6. Can I borrow him to help me rigging my shrimper? G.L.
  7. I would like to make them like you but your splice skills surpass mine in large extent. G.L.
  8. Seven frames in place. Still seven to go. G.L. Completed projects: HMS Triton cross section - FINISHED - Scale 1:24 Current projects: Oostends schipje (Ostend shrimper) - scale 1:20 Cross section Fishing Smack - Scale 1/20, POF, approx. 1920
  9. Thanks for your comment Carl and all the others for the likes. Five frames set. G.L. Completed projects: HMS Triton cross section - FINISHED - Scale 1:24 Current projects: Oostends schipje (Ostend shrimper) - scale 1:20 Cross section Fishing Smack - Scale 1/20, POF, approx. 1920
  10. Here we go, Pat! Part 5: Mounting the frames To mount the frames vertically, I place a board perpendicular on the base of the slipway. The board can be moved over the full length of the keel. To center the frame tops, on each horizontal support the middle is marked. This mark must match the center line on the board. Two frames placed. To keep the space between the frames equal, I glue temporally some spacers between each frame. G.L.

  11. All 14 frames are finished. Here you see the most forward frame (the smallest) together with the most afterward (the biggest). G.L.

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.
