  1. Great job on the model! Love the case and thanks for the drawing of the case, could you elaborate on the joinery?
  2. Fantastic build and all from a picture and memory! Well done, looking foward to that final photo!
  3. Fantastic build kees'. This is a beautiful model and one any one would be proud to display in ones home or museum too!
  4. Antony, I am sure you are number one in Alex's life. Good work!
  5. Looking foward to seeing your jig for the paddle wheels, any one know if Clare is still sailing?
  6. Dubs, fantastic build! I like the was you will go back over the problems until you are satisfied with that particular section of the build. On the windows the reconstruction turned out really well and they really look beautiful and real. You did not really cover the construction of the actual windows and I could only find one picture that shows some of the construction of the frames... do you have any other pictures that you did not post on the construction of the windows that might show how you built them?
  7. Nice build, look foward to seeing the finished section. Thanks for jumping in with clarification on what I was asking tom. Not that I plan on building the leopard I liked how Tom was opening up some of the innards of the leopard showing how that part was constructed. My thought was to modify a POB kit build and wondred how Tom had modified his build, I was wrong! Guy
  8. Perfect! Tom, Bluto. Yes I see a total scratchbuilt model. I was thinking to modify a kit but can see now that would would be more difficult though not impossible. Cheers, Guy
  9. Thanks, so you did not use any part of the bulkhead keel former that you would have normally used for a POB build. The first and last pictures are great but they do not show the keel part between the POB and POF section of your build. Yes on photo #2 shows the keel for the first bulkhead going aft and I assume it is the same going foward. Perfect a complete scratch build!
  10. Ok, just trying to figure out how you delt with bulkhead and built up frames on the keel. Guess I asked for TMI.

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
