  1. Modification to the height gauge. I installed the new screws but still found i had to put a pliers to tighten enough so that the pointed would not move. To solve this problem i made up two plastic extensions which made it easy to tighten with my fingers.
  2. Thanks Greg i am Just so annoyed to make such a basic mistake which in hindsight is so clearly illustrated in the books planking layout. What led me astray was the various photographs of different builds that show the end of strakes 1&2 in different locations. I am just going to stick to the book going forward. I have almost completed on the correction exercise after which i am off to Germany Holland and England for a few weeks holiday. When i return i will be refreshed and ready to go again. I am in 5he process of recording my error. I will make it private access in the first instance and would appreciated if you and David could look at it and comment. Since these videos may be used as a guide in future builds i need to show the errors and the corrections so that i do not mislead future modelers. Best regards kevin
  3. I have had a lot of trouble with regard to the finished height of strake 15. After conversations with both Greg and David i have developed a chart with the finished heights off the plan. Clearly i made a number of mistakes with the installation of the strakes (see Davids correction photograph. I am going to only correct the finished height of strake 15 and move on since i am closing all this inside.

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.
