  1. The boats look great Dave! And only a month?? It took me a month to do the first one on my Kate Cory...Now I’m thinking about stealing your idea for the card stock stripe. So maybe I don’t even have one finished yet!
  2. Thanks Chuck. And thanks for the likes from all. I have a question. When I get to that final strake, should the top of each frame sit flush with the top of the last strake? I'm guessing if the frame protrudes over a little we simply sand it down? What if a frame doesnt reach the top?
  3. Hard to believe it's over a month since my last update. Planking continues. I've broken more than my fair share of planks, so I got a lot of practice cutting planks. Also had to cut one a bit wider to get each side back in alignment. I cut so many planks, I actually ran out of extra space and I had to get another sheet of wood from Chuck to continue. (Thanks Chuck!) I'm having better results soaking the planks in water a bit and then bending with heat. There's some bumps at the bow I'm not real happy with. I'll need to do some work there, and touch up and sand other areas to get a smooth shape, but all in all, for my first attempt at planking anything, I guess it could have gone worse. 3 more strakes to go...

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.
