  1. Excellent work Michael, I like the panel's with the spalting showing through, when oiled they should look awesome
  2. And the doctor in back to the future if I remember rightly, welcome aboard
  3. The full plan, as you can see a large windlass at the front but no davit??? The captains cabin is also under the fore deck with not a lot of room because if the state room I guess, which also isn't exactly large either but heated
  4. Thanks Druxey, I cant see a galley anywhere on the lower deck but there is a fireplace for the state room, you can see the chimney and base plate on the picture above. I'm guessing that this ship might have had other purposes than just ferrying the clerk around, maybe anchor hoy or the like, due to the large capstan and windlass. Could a mounting like this have been used for the fish davit when hauling an anchor??? Would they have needed a galley if just being used in the port confines?? Thanks Regards Paul
  5. Basic structure has been out together, boxwood keel and stem Counter planking complete, Black paper between each plank
  6. There is a little anomaly on the plan though that im not sure what it is, the deck plan shows a square but the profile shows sort of mounting shape if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it?? Obviously going to be some time before I get there !
  7. The wife bought me these plans last Christmas after seeing me looking at them on the NMM website, last week before Xmas she asked me where were they and why hadn't I built it yet???? I had actually copied the plans and made bulkhead patterns The plans appear to be at 1/32 but the stem of the boat is missing so full length isn't known however extending the lines and using the deck plan a reasonable assumption can be made A false keel was made from ply along with the bulkheads, the ship plans say longboat in the notes but it is fully decked with a state room, and fireplace below deck and a large capstan and large windlass, sliding bowsprit gives the impression of a cutter rig and layout so that's what im aiming for, I've gone for bulkheads as there's no framing plan and as its full decked out I can show some nice deck planking hopefully
  8. Ha no worries, i was serious, lucky you, jealousy gets you nowhere😁
  9. Aren't you the lucky one😁 enjoy retirement Regards Paul
  10. Happy new year Siggi, glad to bear you are feeling better, still waiting for my lion to arrive and looking forward to activity on the tiger I wouldn't get to upset about the discussions in the ports, do what you feel is correct its your model after all, and most would be happy to get anywhere near your standards 😁😁 Regards Paul
  11. Happy new year Johann, I'm still waiting for my hooks to arrive, maybe in 2020 😁😁 Regards Paul

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.
