  1. Painting time. I did not capture all steps as I was caught up in the process. Primed all the model. Painted Hull black and inside blue. After doing some research, the first part of the ship was red so I corrected that. After it all dried, I sprayed a coat of clear matte to protect the ship.
  2. Continued to work on the front of the ship. I am trying to install everything needed before priming and painting the SHIP. I also did a final Sanding of the Hull and removed all dust with mineral spirit. Working on the rudder.
  3. Fixed a mistake with the railing. I misread the plan and forgot to add a plank under the railings. Better now. Moving to adding the bench support.
  4. Continued progress. Worked on ship wall support and Drilled hole for the mast. Created fake doors. Added the mast support. Getting it ready for painting. I need to add a few supports and planks and it is priming time.
  5. Hi all, The kit was given to me by a member of my club. It seems to complete but with the exception of the plans. I am looking for someone willing to sell them to me if no longer need them. Please PM if interested.
  6. 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.
  7. Started to work on the deck. Removing the unnecessary portion of the bulkhead. Planking the stern section.
  8. After a long absence and lack of update, I am starting to resume working on this model. Starting second planking of the Transom.

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.
