  1. Hello Jonesey , me too , I think I will leave it without the plates but will see
  2. Thank you md1400cs about the plates im not sure may be leave it without the plates like Berto it looks more serious with wood finishing but there is a time to decide ...
  3. Thank you dear Robert for the comment and also for all the tips
  4. Thank you EJ_L and happy to see you again i missed that forum , the build and the smell of the wood just happy to be back
  5. Hello friends , after long time I'm updating my build log, 6 month ago we had a baby so I not had the time even to think about the build but now starting again ... so 6 month ago I left the ship after finishing the first plank and now im working (very slowly but working lol) on the gallery here is some pictures how I left the ship :
  6. Very nice jig ! About your problems , the part 17 must be fitted with the keel , but you must make sure that the outside line of both of the parts are on the same line !! also the inside line must be the same line ( it looks like the part no.17 is out of the inside line (the slot line ) you must fix it befor the next stage , if not the bulkhead will not fitt 90 degrees !! about about the problem with the 14-12 it looks a bit strange , because any way how the plank will touch the bulkhead 14 ? The step between 14-12 its ver big !... check againg in the plans also in mor build logs how it looks in the back btw you doing well !!!! Keep asking questions and learn more about every step , in hebrew we say , when you understandings well the problem - its half way fo the solution! Best regards ! Michael.
  7. Hello Wallace it will help you a lot !! just be shore that all is exact 90 degrees and also in the straight line !!! take your time and do it very carefully ! if you need any help you can send me p.m Best regards, Michael.
  8. hello there, i had this kit before ... (and i turn it back ... i payed around 1200 dollar so it make me upset to dill with the bulkheads problems of that kit ,but dont worry about that ... you can fix all the problems like i said i turn it back only because i payed a lot on it .... ) a few tips about the bulkheads problems 1. before you will start gluing and fixing the bulkheads ... just make sure that all the bulkheads are symmetrical in both sides you can use a card for that (dont trust the plans even at the plans its not symmetrical ) 2.be sure to fix all the bulkheads on the same level ! (i mean to make them on the exact level on the deck line) , im not remember if the deck line its a flat line or there is a curve ... just check in in your plans and if there is a curve line just measure the distance from the bottom to each deck line in every frame ... and do the same position when you will glue the frames on the keel , after all ... you will notice that there is some bulkheads that going in from the planks line and some of them going out , now take your time to fix them (even if it will take you forever .... dont jump to the second process until you will finish this process !!!!) Best regards Michael.

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.
