  1. Great to hear that you feeling somewhat better! Wish you all the strength!
  2. Just recieved an e-mail from Arkowood. They are going to replace the 0.5x100x1000 pear with the maple that I actually ordered. So the service is good!
  3. Great result Norway! You can be really proud on what you achieved with this build!
  4. Placed some reinforcement pieces between the last and second-last bulkhead, and also between the stern extensions. Everything was quite fragile because of the modifications, so this will give it some strength when i'm working on it. The reinforcement pieces on the upside of the stern extensions are maybe getting in the way when I place the stern fascia with the windows in it. (blocking the windows) But I can decide to cut them away when the time is there. Then they aren't needed anymore.
  5. They are placed in a slight angle, second last bulkhead needs also some bevelling tho.
  6. I see what you mean Spyglass. I thought it needed to be faired in that particular angle, because the slots where the pieces sit in were just in that angle. And also the manual doesn't mention this. I just checked it with a piece of wood and it looks like there is enough "flesh" on the extension to be faired in this angle. But so was the intention of the plans that I needed to place this piece on a more steeper angle?
  7. Just placed a review of the wood in my log! https://modelshipworld.com/topic/23098-hms-pegasus-by-mugje-amati-164-second-build/page/5/
  8. Yes definitely! That last part is tricky so a bit visual help with the balsa blocks will help the fairing process.
  9. It was time to glue the last delicate bulkhead, because that makes it also easier to understand how much fairing there is still to do. A bit weird to place it in the right angle and parallel with the second-last bulkhead because it's so modified, but with a few pieces of scrapwood and clamps everything will be fine. One maybe obvious tip...try the clamp idea first without glue so you know what to do and everything is lying ready...so you have no stress haha
  10. Still working on fairing the stern pieces, but first glued some balsa between the last bulkheads, and shaped it roughly to it's shape so the running of the planks is easier visible.
  11. Today received the new wood from Arkowood...very happy with the quality, nice clean cuts and checked randomly some sizes...looking good! Just one mistake. I ordered a ahorn plank, but received pear. So I have send him a mail...waiting for answer to replace it. The woods are ahorn and pear

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.
