  1. I planked my Marie Jeanne with them, worked well. They bend easily and sand to a smooth finish.
  2. Welcome Nathan! Always good to see another Saffa join the ranks. What are you currently building or plan on building?
  3. Welcome back! From what I can see, you have done an excellent job of the hull planking. It is very difficult to plank a hull the 'correct' way with only kit supplied planking strips - if you are interested there is a tutorial at http://modelshipworldforum.com/resources/Framing_and_Planking/plankingprojectbeginners.pdf (might be a bit late now!) Coppering - have you considered doing only one side, then you get the best of both worlds.
  4. The first layer of planking is to build a solid base for your second layer, so do not worry about tapering, spacers etc, yet. The first layer is going to look ugly, it's normal
  5. I believe the figurehead in your picture dates from 1922, after she was returned to Falmouth Cutty Sark images Could be that the figurehead was painted after she became the Ferreira. and great build so far Don!
  6. No thinning required, it is very thin already. I just apply with a small hobby paint brush and clean the brush with turps. Keep in mind not to paint any areas where you still need to glue any components.
  7. I find the one on drawing No1 quite interesting, called a Hålländsk Hummer-Hukare in Swedish, Google translates to Dutch Lobster Hawker Drawings by Chapman Sjöhistoriska museet
  8. I use Woodoc Interior Matt, made in SA for SA conditions. Woodoc Should be available at your local hardware store. If you are not happy with the bleed out from the artline marker you can try a Archival pen, no bleed out at all! Sakura archival pen
  9. Looking good so far Haiko. You don't need to use balsa, in your case you can use pear for filler blocks! Also, cameras/phones will quickly distort an image if the pic isn't taken perpendicular to the subject, so that's why it might look a bit asymmetrical.
  10. Thanks Haiko, I actually live in Hartbeespoort, North West! Pity we didn't have this conversation a month ago, I drove past Montagu three weeks ago! I will be coming to Cape Town sometime in 2020 though, so would like take up your kind offer then. I'm sure my admiral will like to come stay over (had a look at your website and it looks fantastic) If you have need of the drill press in the meantime I can courier/postnet it to you - we can discuss the finer details on the message function under our profiles.

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.
