  1. Thanks guys for comments. Only i had so imagined that I would finish it much quicker. But there is so much more to be done.
  2. Thanks Gabek. I look at your project sometimes also. And I wonder how it can be done on such a small scale.
  3. Thanks mate. But I'm finally Decide going to order it from the United States. I know that it will be a little more expensive. But losing a few extra pounds not will be end of the world:) In any case once again Thank you.
  4. Thanks Christian This book also for my recommended Tony. But I can't to find it this book in the uk:( But I guess I have no choice. And I have to order it from the US. Simple it is a bit expensive shipping +tax. In any case I should look in Sea Watch books ?
  5. Thanks Mtaylor for the reply. I just looking for example more information about pump room measurements. Of course I can also copy other build models. That I think are going to do. Because I can not find it in full-build plans:( Of course A good option would be a kind of reference book. Maybe you can recommend something...
  6. Hi. I add a little progress from my model. I glued the first top plank to hold together all frames. And cuts off all frames in the right-size. And only then start sanding inside of hull. Step by step I stars planking. First planks I made a slightly curved. To keep straight part in bottom of inside hull. As well pre drill holes in keelson for hold pillar. Next I made a couple of clams for planking. To make future work easier. It works pretty well. Cut out limber board in right shape. And cut it by small parts. Then folded again all together and drill holes between. By individual pieces I glued it In place. I leave only place for pump room. It's all for the moment. I hope so will have more free time to keep going.:) Ainars
  7. Hello all again. Still I wanted to ask. When I look at the other cross section models. There is also the added middle mast. As an example ChadB. For me it seems a great idea. But where could I find more details? Of the mast and the "walls" around him. Part can be understood from the full-Build drawings. But if it were possible that maybe someone can suggest something.
  8. Thanks Tony. But the time I did choose the easiest way:). I'm afraid all make it even more complicated. In any case once again thank you for the recommended book.
  9. Thank you all. Now I want to start hull planking. But just do not understand one thing. So from the outside. Many model makers form joints between planks. I think if you look horizontally.Which in my opinion would be correct. But it is with the inside? Here, I look at the other built models. All planks make a full-length. Do not also be the joints? Please someone suggest that it is more appropriate. P.S. And once again I apologize for my English. I try as I can:)
  10. Hi. Well finally I have gone a few more steps forward. And glued together all frames. Finally, also is ready for sanding.
  11. Hello everyone. Decided to slightly update my work. I made Tree nails for frames . Clean all the paper. And recommendation of using Fixo gum glue had perfect. Before assembling cut out recess for gun ports. And finally start assembling frames. I slightly redesigned Gun port sill. To create more stringent joint. At the moment it would all. But to be continued.
  12. Thanks Chad. Talking about treenails .I just wanted to know if there are any specific dimensions where they need to bee located. How many their really are on frame? In any case it is too late. Because I decided to improvise. Then next project i will found out how to do it more correctly. Yup. About set filling / spacer block i think that on the component between frames. Do they also have any specific dimensions and sizes where they need to bee located? Did real ships had them If not is it necessary to use them?
  13. Hi. Maybe someone can help with information? I would like to understand what would be the right way of set filling / spacer block? Are there any exact dimensions for them? Or need them at all? Because other projects it is not at all.
  14. Happy new year every one:) I also wanted to show the my progress of H.M.S.Triton . For me it all happens slowly. But not going to give up. When all the parts were cut. Glued it together I had no problems. Once the frame had glued together. Cut out recess for Kell and Kellson With file mace good frames straight part and recess for Kell. With Drum sander sanding inside the frames. At the moment that's all. I started working at the tree nails for frames. But I wanted to ask. Are there any direct information about that? In looking at the work of others. It seems that everyone is doing it differently. P.S. Sorry for my English. Because I do so just learning, as ship modeling
  15. Actually not. It's a cherry wood. I wanted to use Boxwood but was unable to find where to buy Uk. I am not well chosen other materials. Maybe someone can suggest some wood can be used for frames?.
  16. Hi All. Finally I chose to start this project. Like many others this will be my first attempt to scratch building. But I hope that I will have enough skills and have time to finish it. I completed the all kell parts, and ready for next step. Like to ask for the rest of the plans

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.
