  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Thanks Jaager, I will take your advice to heart. I am definitely leaning towards scratch building, busy tooling up and sourcing wood
  9. The dremel tool stays stationary and the table moves up and down, pretty old school, but apparently a lot more accurate than their newer drill presses.
  10. Well, guess more wood for us SA locals! I'm definitely interested in your offer. I have an old Dremel Drill Press that is gathering dust, if this is something you would be interested in?
  11. Hi Haiko, Looks like the SAPO came through after all, hope the customs duties wasn't too rough! I have come across two build logs that have reference to the rabbet and bearding process, hope it helps: HMS Pegasus by SkipW - Amati/Victory Models - Scale 1:64 HMS Pegasus by Landlubber Mike - Amati/Victory Models - Scale 1:64
  12. Ha ha, not at all, you have your priorities straight! Over here (I live in Hartbeespoort, North West) we braai with Red Ivory! Thank you for the generous offer, you should consider selling to the local hobbyists. ☺️ I bought some Swiss pear(steamed pear) from Rare Woods in Knysna about two weeks ago, selling for R62000 per cubic meter! https://www.rarewoods.co.za/wood-price-list
  13. Welcome Haiko! Looks like you are of to a great start. If you are in the Koo valley then you should have access to pear and apple wood - very valuable for model ship building. All the best and good luck with the SAPO.

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.
