  1. Bolts added at the tip of the standards, bottom will be put in when fastened to the deck, ironwork added to the companionway, gratings also completed, I have simulated the bolts with pencil, only one though couldn't get two in there, I should be able to start deck planking soon
  2. Added the square holes through the wear strips and black bolts at the ends of each strip, companion way also started
  3. Also started on the bitts to hold the windlass, these will be painted red, but I'm not sure about the windlass itself whether to paint or not
  4. Added the wear strips to the windlass and gave a coat of sanding sealer
  5. Started making the windlass using druxeys instructions from the fireship comet book The ratchets are a major headache to cut, I had to make a small chisel to use on them
  6. A bit more done on the cheerful, both bulwarks finished and painted, stern post added and the caprail with a nice piece of mahogany I also added bolts through the caprail using black monofilament

  8. Not much done lately due to the beautiful weather we are having, I did rip out the first window in the gallery as I wasn't happy with it, the centre mullion wasn't in the centre so I remade it It looked really much better to my eyes but now in the photo I'm not sure although the mullion is in the middle which is an improvement, I've done some work on the cheerful as well planking completed, mouldings on and one bulwark finished and painted , I will add some pictures when my phone decides to upload to OneDrive Thanks

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.
