  2. Johann, another question : where did you commissioned the etched parts. (I am from Belgium) regards Luc
  3. beautiful work johann, and thank you for showing your work , i learned a lott After reading you work, i have still a question. After you used birchwood for making the brass parts black, do you use a glue (like CA) for attaching them definitly into the wood. regards Luc
  4. Very nice indeed, are you still using walnut wood for nailing, and what's the thickness?
  5. thank you Greg the progress of the last month. finishing the first planking and putting the lines on the hull so i can check of everything is still ok. On my stern there is a different of a few millmeters. In the kit the frames are 6mm thick , i used +/- 9mm. this give a mistake of 1.5mm, not much , but to much for the basic to build on.
  6. Friday the wood arrived so i can begin the first planking. Swiss pear from Arkowood.
  7. KeithW : The Santisima trinidad was painted with humbrol paint. Now I want to really just plain wood. Vic built his ship also with pear, therefore this choice. What would you use ?? ps: the pear would by painted with G4 , a colorless varnish. Pete: Found you resourcefile a time ago. Becaus i build this ship Rc, my approce of the building is differnt. My next step is the first planking and the rudder and to make everything rechabel and functionel. Once this is don, I need your resourcefile much more.
  8. Thank you Simon, found it. I know i had seen it somewhere a time ago, didn't found it again. thx Luc

  11. After finishing the santisima trinidad (07/2013) it was time for a new adventure. HMS Royal William From Wikipedia and buildlog of KeithW HMS Prince was rebuilt by Robert Lee at Chatham Dockyard in 1692, and renamed at the same time as HMS Royal William. During the War of the Grand Alliance the ship saw action at the Battle of Barfleur of 19 May 1692. The Prince belonged to the red squadron and carried the flag of Rear Admiral of the Red Sir Cloudesley Shovell. She was the first ship to break the French line during the battle. Later she was rebuilt for a second time by John Naish at Portsmouth Dockyard from 1714, relaunching on 3 September 1719. She was laid up after her re-launch and saw no service at all until she was reduced to an 84-gun Second rate ship in 1756. One year later, she was part of an unsuccessful expedition against Rochefort led by Admiral Sir Edward Hawke. Her squadron, under Vice-Admiral Charles Knowles, attacked the Île-d'Aix and forced her garrison to surrender. In 1758 she participated in Boscawen's and Wolfe's attack on the French Fortress of Louisbourg (Nova Scotia) and an indecisive skirmish with a French squadron. The following year the Royal William returned to Canada under the command of Captain Hugh Pigot to join the attack on Quebec. After the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and the capture of Quebec she sailed back to England with the body of General Wolfe. In 1760 the Royal William was Boscawen's flagship when he took command of the fleet in Quiberon Bay. However, after a severe gale he was forced to return and shift his flag to the Namur. During the expedition against Belle Île of 1761 she was detached with several other ships to cruise off Brest and prevent a French counter-attack from there. The Seven Years' War seems to be the last time that the Royal William played an active role. She was broken up in 1813.

From Wikipedia and buildlog of KeithW I 'd seen Vic his Royal William on the forum Rcgroups, and the build was so wonderful that i knew that i must build this ship also. After a dip in building boats over more then 1 year, i started the last month with the Royal William. I used plywood 10mm for the false keel and the frames. Behind the false keel was another boatbuild that failed. A swedisch privateer. Must remove the plans.
  12. Hoi Vic, Searching for information about the royal William, this topic shows up. Beautiful work as always. Luc (santisma Trinidad rc)

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.
