    HMS Bellona by harlequin - Corel

    some more progress on Bellonas hull...……..wont be too long before the hull is completed...…..the cannon are not yet fixed...…...few days away climbing soon in Snowdonia and the Lakes so progress will ease for a little while.

    Bellona begins to take shape....slowly but surely.....only been five years to this stage...……..on and off.....softly softly catchy monkey.

    Rudder attached.....all the knocks and repairs of Bellonas hull can be seen that have occurred over the years....adds to her character I think.

    cheers Busby.....long gaps occur during my builds.....Bellona was left alone for almost 18 months then suddenly I get a spurt on.....I have ready for the off corels HMS Unicorn and Endeavour....once I move onto the masting and rigging I will start one of the others.....more than likely Unicorn.

    Bit of colour for the figure head...…..it is amazing how rubbish your work looks when it is larger than normal. Not sure these will be the final colours for Bellona just happy playing about...
  10. on the pic you posted those will be the natural colours of the wood supplied in the kit......the builder has probably only used a clear varinish on them if any at all. There should be several colours of wood planking supplied with your kit.
  11. they are the natural colours of the wood.....1 could be several woods, 2 is probably walnut and 3 is beech.

    Not decided what finish to apply yet....will be a water based matt or satin or combination of both.

    well its amazing how suddenly a model seems to change character and start to resemble a finished product....not that I am anywhere near that yet but there is a little chink of light that seems to be emanating from the end of the tunnel. Will post some pics later of progress...a lot of niggly little bits have been added which helps. The hull is slowly getting there.
  15. morning old boy.....you are just like me....not satisfied with one build on the go......I have bits all over....it is a wonder I can find them all.....my Bellona is very slowly coming together now......good to see a sub on the menu.........I went the other way...upwards...as I was a paratrooper in my youth.

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.
