  1. Back to INGOMAR!! Hi all, after a long time (summer, repairing RC sailplane) I'm back to finish this lovely ship. Bowsprit iron works and stays have been installed. Ciao
  2. Hi all! Summer activities are gone. The shipyard is going to restart. Ciao!
  3. Thanks a lot of your like and comments, Mike Y, aviaamotor, Rick01and Albert!! Building is suspended due to other summer activities, but I'm going to continue shortly. Now I'm involved to repair my rc-glider. Your likes and comments are pushing me to continue! Ciao
  4. Hi all. Long time since last post about the nice schooner “Ingomar”. Now she’s waiting due to a new building: POF OF the schooner “Enterprize” a small ship built in Hobart, Tasmania. Why this ship? The fact is that I have since 1996 a nice plan drawn by K.H. Marquardt, enclosed in a number of “Model Shipwright”. This is the first POF. The method is similar to the method H.Hahn, but not completely the same. The same is the way to prepare frames. I bought very fine pearwood sheets from ARKOWOOD. Pictures show the first steps. Frames are only positioned not fixed. I'll alternate working both ships INGOMAR and ENTERPRIZE. Ciao!
  5. Thank you Michael, I mean "intermittent". The correct word. Ciao!
  6. Hi all. Long time since last post. I'm a discontinued builder, although continuously interested to read NRG forum and books. Anyway, masts are installed, anchors are ready, obtained from a 2mm thick brass plate. Ciao!
  7. Hi all. Just to confirm my disappointment seeing the Longdridge's Victory in 2011, not only completely dust covered, but also with some part broken and some planking strip cracked. Same disappoinment to visit the NMM: only a few models on display. Very different from my visit at NMM in 1999, when I had the lucky to see that magnificent ship models display! Ciao a tutti. Giorgio
  8. Allan, che coincidenza!! (conosci l'italiano?) This wonderful book solved the enigma of crosstrees. I'm courious to see your work!! Ciao, Giorgio
  9. Just today I received this nice book. The front picture shows the Ingomar! It'easy to check that crosstrees have to be installed!!
  10. Hi Allan, I appreciate your post, thank you. The Ingomar is mainly based on the Chapelle book, other books are shown in my first post. Furthermore I've bought 20 years ago a useful drawing from David Mc Gregor. This helps, but the problem is always the same: it's not easy to find a definitive source about rigging. For example, I wonder if crosstrees shall be installed! About the rope, I bought Chuck Passaro ropes in the diameter I suppose fit better in my scale. Anyway, I think the better source is Chapelle book. I'm going to update the build log in the next days: these pictures show the masts simply fitted in their holes, and not completely aligned. I hope to exchange more informations about fishing schooners with you! Ciao, Giorgio P.S.: the b/w picture in the first photo shows Neil Armstrong as a child with a aircraft flying model. I'm a RC-aeromodeller also!

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.
