  1. Hello Ship Mates I am about to start a P.O.F. build from a set of plans that I purchased through the Lumberyard from Harold M. Hahn. These are a very detailed set of plans that consist of 6 sheets of plans drawn up on 24” x 36” or 61 x 91.2 cm. I also purchased a Mast and Rigging sheet of plans for the HMS Druid, directly from Harold’s son Chris Hahn. Chris Hahn gave me permission to use some of his Dads pictures in the interdiction of my build log on my up and coming P.O.F. scratch build on the Oliver Cromwell. This build is something that I have given a lot of thought to over the last couple of years ever fowling Wayne Tripp build his kit build of the Emma C. Berry. His build has intrigued me to search out this POF kind of a build versus the FO B like I have fowled for a number of years now. I can only hope that I have mustered enough skills to be able to justify my up and coming build the Oliver Cromwell. In looking at some of Harold’s M. Hanan work I often wonder if I will be able to justify such a build. Do or die this is something that I truly want to try at least once, I do realize that I can never come close to the very high skills that Harold M. Hahn has shown us in his builds, but I do want to give this type of build an honest try. I will rely on my Ship Mates very heavily for there words and comments in this build very much to steer me in the right direction if at all possible, please bear with me if I should make a blunder and I am sure that I will make more than my share within this build. I wish to thank Mike Y and Mark Taylor for all of there help in getting me started on this very new and very challenging build that I am about to undertake, I do thank you both for all of your patency and so very kind support that you both have given me. After a very lot of thought, I have decided to build my Oliver Cromwell out of Cherrywood Frames with a Red Oak Keel and along with a strip of Black Walnut for the False Keel. I have been very tied up for over two months now in catch up Home Chores, The end is in sight as I have started making tons of sawdust in sawing and planning up over 200’ of Cherry Wood for all of the frames for my Oliver Cromwell. This I have done, now I must split or rip these strips into 1” or 2.5mm strips in preparation for building all of those frames that are required of the Oliver Cromwell. In the last couple of months, the Old Ship Yard has been rather very much deserted for lack of time and energy to put into this new build as yet. I have however built a little Binnacle and added a single LED Lamp to it, not much to show for over two months of work but then again it is a start in the right direction, even if a Binnacle is a long way in to the future of this build but one does have to start somewhere, why I started here I will never know but then again I did the same with my HMS Victory build of many years ago. I will be posting this Oliver Cromwell build in the next coming couple of days, as soon as I figure out the width of the ships Keel that must be cut to except all of those hull frames, just how I will cut these is still up in the air. ENJOY. Regards Lawrence

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.
