  1. Thank you guys.4 After several unsuccessful attempts is stern completed. The lower filling parts I had to make four times­čśí.
  2. Thank you Albert­čśë. I continue with making of stern parts - filling transoms, wing transom, fashion pieces.
  3. Thank you The Learner­čśë. Making of rabbet.
  4. I glued together all the parts of the keel and put the keel into the building board. Now remains to make a rabbet and I will start preparing for the frame construction.
  5. So, the remaining parts of the keel are completed. Without a milling machine, this work would be very problematic.
  6. Thank you guys. This construction will be much more complicated than Pandora, a lot of POF techniques are new to me, but I hope I can handle it. The first few parts of the keel are done. First little complication was making some parts from two different kind of wood.
  7. Thank you guys to all for very kind comments­čśë. I would like to invite all my followers to watch my new building log:
  8. After a long creative vacuum, I started a new project. This is the so-called "gabare" Le Gros Ventre at 1:48 scale, the model will be realized using the POF method (plank on frame) according to a monograph by Gerard Delacroix. I will use cherry, pear, black hornbeam and maple wood for the building, without painting. Gabare is a cargo ship used by the French Royal Navy during the 18th and 19th centuries. For this reason, there is no orlop deck. The first phase of the construction was the making of a building board necessary for the installation of frames on the keel. Great attention must be paid to the maximum accuracy of the position of the bottom and top base.
  9. Thank you to all for very nice and kind comments­čÖé. Last week I took part in the C-class World Championship and here is the result:
  10. So finally, after about 3750 hours, I got to the finish. Thanks to everyone for watching my log and I would like to invite you to watch my next building log - Le Gros Ventre POF.
  11. Thank you guys. The boats are finally completed. It is now still to finish the oars, masts and spars and install everything on the model.
  12. Dirk, thanks for your comment. I agree, the flags could be better. But - the flags are printed with laser printer on thin batist (two times from each side) and this was one of the best attempt after a long time spent. The last part of Pandora constuction - two boats. Some pictures from hull making.
  13. Thank you monta┼łes. I installed the flags on the model and now only boats remain to do. The Pandora included 5 boats which all are placed in central part of the ship. To see equipment on the board I decide to make only two boats.
  14. Thank you guys. Mike Y: I's tempting, but two shows in September are enough, maybe next time. Little progress - anchor┬┤s installation.
  15. Thank you very much guys! To dvm27 - this model will be installed in my living room together with my other models. To wyz - some people will be have the possibility to see this model in September 2018 in Romania (Naviga┬┤s World Championship) and in Czech Republik (Czech Championship). Some pictures from lanterns production.

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.
