  1. then I painted the etched brass eyelets and cleats with first a metal primer and then 'mat metal black' from Admiralty paints. It's really small haha! I have to get used to it...to handle such small items
  2. The hull is ready so i can start with the inner bulwark fittings. First i will fresh up the cleats, they are pretty rough casts.
  3. Great build! You are doing a amazing job on the Sherbourne, very inspiring!
  4. I enjoy the build a lot! In the past i was a person that gave up on things pretty fast because i encountered to many problems, but this hobby is teaching me patience and selfesteem. Wonderful! 🎇 I'm so happy that i rediscovered the hobby again. I think that i wasn't ready for it a few years ago. Now it's time to move on with it, and to enjoy the process it's given me. Little personal sidenote
  5. I used some steel wol and sandpaper to rough the paint a bit up. I don't like the clean look of a freshly painted ship. It's needs to be a bit old and scruffy ;). The pictures don't capture it just right. In real life it looks much better. I need to borrow the camera of a friend of mine so i can photograph the details better.
  6. Finished al the painting of the hull! That's a nice milestone for now Especially the bottom of the yellow strip was difficult for me. I didn't get it perfect in my eyes with just the hand. So i used masking tape and that made a lot of difference. Now it's okay to me. The flashy spots on the copper plates are from the dremel. I have to clean the plates once more so everything can age simultaneously.
  7. The copper plates still need some work...there are some spots of glue residue. It's not the most fun work, so i do it in little steps
  8. with the Dremel just flatted the pins. I filled the dents...that came along with my Dremel work with some wood filler
  9. filled the gap between the capping rails with a piece of scrapwood, and cleant it up afterwards.
  10. Ah tnx! It's a lot clearer now! That with the elastic bands does sound a lot easier now. I just misunderstood it wrong in the first place. Well, that's useful in a lot of ways indeed. Thanks for al the help👍 That lego seems also very handy, so i need some of that
  11. Thank you a lot! I will look for finer pins. These ones have a thickness of 0.7 mm
  12. Getting more and more respect for the people who make the ships 'naturel' regarding the colors! I can correct a lot of mistakes with some filler and paint, so that's handy for now😂

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.
