  1. Dear Gundorph, having followed your build of the USS Constitution by Billing Boards, I noticed that you did not complete the log.

    I am currently making the same kit and need help either from you or any one on this forum to help me start the rigging on my model.


    Did you finish the model if so have you any photos that you can share with me? I really need to understand how this complexed subject can be attained.


    Best regards from Mombasa, Kenya. 

  2. Hey..... And so the planking began... After seeing Eric O´s Syren hull painted Yellow Orcre.. I have come to doubt whether I should paint it or not... I lean towards painting it... I really like the way it looks when it´s painted Yellow... But first PLANKING
  3. Ed: It´s not about how fast your going.. But having fun in the Shipyard ( for me )... I've also had a lot of time lately... I have no deadline when to be finished...
  4. Everything looks very good... Also like the yellow ochre, mayby i also will paint mine too...
  5. Ed : I would fair the bulkheads when the fillerblocks are glued into place.. I live 160 Km from Copenhagen on Fyn... Made a jig for bending planks, the first planks and wales is in the jig now drying. So tomorrow i can get started with the wales...
  6. Good morning from Denmark... Here´s an update on the Syren, It´s beginning to take shape... Got the stern framing in place, painted the gunport and made the filler blocks. Off to charpter 5. Looking forward to that..
  7. I only use 4 - 8 hours a week in the shipyard... We have a little boy on 1.5 years he is taken almost all the time we got ( and it´s Lovely )... its only when his a sleep i can go to the shipyard...
  8. What a lovely girlfriend i have. Came home from work today, and she had bought my a gift to the shipyard... What a GREAT DAY... Proxxon KS230 + 2 xtra blades... Now back to the shipyard and work on the Syren...
  9. Just found your log... Looks very good... Will follow along...

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.
