  1. Hello, Thanks for the advice Eamonn, bulwarks are now soaked and drying around a mug ! Sounds interesting the way you did your planking, will have a look later. And here are some pictures so far...
  2. Okay so its been a while, work has been very busy recently but the build is in progress ! I have assembled the keel and bulkheads, they are all glued nicely together. Also the false deck has been glued in place. All is looking rather good so far. Next stage is to offer up the bulwarks, I have noticed that they need a fairly shape curvature at the front end and was wondering if anyone had any techniques for this. Best I have seen so far is to put it in hot water, but does this make the wood swell ? Also I think I need to invest in a pack of model pins as I understand they make planking a bit less stressful ! Anyone had any problems with using pins ? So for no pics, will upload some when I am back at computer Cheers all, R5
  3. Thanks for the welcome, "I will follow your build log and will be glad of any tips that you have to pass on." - Likewise Andrew ! I shall be taking lost of photos thought the build, thanks again, R5
  4. Hello All, I was going to start this build about a year ago, after some very helpful advice from members of this forum I managed to narrow the choice of my first build down to either HM Yacht Chathem or HMS Cutter Sherboure. However, shortly after that post my circumstances changed and was not able to start. But now I have decided, for many various reasons, to buy the Sherbourene, I like the fact that it spent most of its time in service around my home city of Plymouth. nevertheless it was a difficult choice between two magnificent vessels. So I decided to create a new account as I cant remember my old one ,and am now eagerly awaiting the arrival of my kit . Thanks to though who offered there advise last year on that thread, Cheers, R5

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.
