  1. Long break. My garage is small and I had to reorganize my larger tools and all my scrap wood. Here are a few pictures of the progress. Imagine the planer and drill press on the workbench. Impossible to lay out plans and various projects. Now to the ship update. I worked on the keel and double planked it.
  2. Started to work on the deck. Removing the unnecessary portion of the bulkhead. Planking the stern section.
  3. After a long absence and lack of update, I am starting to resume working on this model. Starting second planking of the Transom.
  4. Long overdue update. Worked on first planking and completed it. Next steps... Wood filler smoothing the Hull and second planking
  5. Hi, It is a tough one. I did most of my research on French modeling sites. Not a problem with Google translate if you do not speak French. The plans from the AAMM were instrumental as well. http://www.aamm.fr/boutique/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65&products_id=235 Bookmarked a few webpage along the way https://www.theropetokyo.org/展示会作品集/第27回展-2002年/第27回展-4-5/ https://www.theropetokyo.org/展示会作品集/第41回展-2016年/第41回展-1-6/#41-05 http://modelisme-naval-bois.lebonforum.com/t2877-la-marie-jeanne-thonier-de-concarneau-d-artesania-latina-au-1-50e-un-de-plus-par-taz-de-penn-ar-bed http://5500.forumactif.org/t2459-thonier-marie-jeanne-billing-boat I also like this french site.The scale is different (1/36) but great details especially on the rigging. http://www.planeteloisirs-bg.fr/index_fichiers/pages/bateau/marie-jeanne-1.html I hope this helps.
  6. Planking starts... After fairing the Hull, I started with the first plank.
  7. Some parts were warped so I had to put them under clamps Started to put together the hull. It was pretty straight forward so far. Prepared the stern and drill the hole for the tiller.
  8. Here is my new build. It will be for one of my daughters. It looks like it is going to be a fun build. I will be working on it at the same time as my other project, the Confederacy I think I am just going to build this one out of the box.

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.
