  1. The thickness is 0.3mm. I bought a couple of rolls last year for very little money. In the Netherlands it's called "Latoen". I don't know for sure if it's brass or maybe yellow copper
  2. Bad habits die hard... 🙉🙈🙊 Thanks for the kind replies and for hitting the like-button. The deck indeed needs some colour and maybe some staining. I will work that out later in the build Kind regards, Kees
  3. Some other parts for the front (bigest) mast and the mast at the bow (Kluiverboom in Dutch)
  4. I've build a wooden clinkerbuild dingy for my herringlugger. Here some pictures how I did it. Don't know if it's the smartest way but it worked out for me. For steambending the wood I've build a woodsteamer from an old rice cooker and soms loose materials.
  5. I made two new hatches for the livingspace of the crew. Sorry I really dont know how to call these in English.
  6. The wire in the picture is more like 0.4 or 0.3mm but I will have a look for you. Maybe I can find some 1mm wire. I do know there is 1mm brass rodd for sale in hobbystores but thats very stiff rod.
  7. Thanks for all the kind words and all the likes and views. I really enjoy building this fishingship but I have neglected to post more often. Now I have settled in my new job and education I hope to post more regularly.
  8. I started building the different hatches. First I cut out the base in the wooden deck an after that I build the border and the hatch. When ready will place the border and the hatch in the wooden deck.

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.
