  1. Here's an easy method and it is similar to how I do them, and the video is easier than me trying to explain it. Should give you the look you want. A key aspect in my opinion is using finer diameter seizing thread than shown in the video to help keep things in scale. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzDl5MYOgmQ
  2. I had to cut my bulwarks on Granado as well. Should be no issue.
  3. Fantastic work, especially considering your first effort Candice. Your planking came out particularly nice.
  4. Good luck with your build. I built the Caldercraft version and will be interested to see the differences in the Victory Models version.
  5. Looking forward to your take on the POB David. She's been on my radar for awhile. Good luck with the build.
  6. I think he means the trestletree part specifically. And, no it's not upside down. You have it correct. Continuing to look very nice. I made my own bibbs/cheeks as well. Good move there.
  7. Mark, I have a build that is 22 years old that was done with the copper tape. Not even a hint of anything lifting. Hopefully this is reassuring...
  8. Aren't you already building the Caldercraft kit?
  9. Your suggested method is how I recall doing it Bob. Any joint will be well hidden by the cap itself.
  10. Thanks guys. So far Latham looks good fiddling around with things Chris. The fittings package looks decent and the Ronnberg plans (other than the rigging sheet) look good. I picked up Chapelle's "American Fishing Schooners" book and can tell it will be a nice resource. Build log to follow once I get something concrete going. Should be a nice change form the warships!

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.
