  1. Hi Keith Way ahead of you on that one, mowed the lawns on Tuesday for the First time, with the lovely weather weve been having we have started to let ollie out, poor lamb gets tired running around though and has found a new resting place, for Amelia- Foredeck caprails being fitted this afternoon Thanks for dropping in, stay safe everyone Regards Paul
  2. current state of play after 5 days in the garage, working on the door to the accommodations and trying to work out how to make the curved chimney as its quite large, I made a temporary one out of basswood but it needs to be hollow to look good
  3. Whilst finishing the deck furniture I started thinking about the rigging, I was originally going to do a full cutter rig but now I'm not sure, I don't think this boat would have ever left the dockyard and wouldn't need that much rig and I'm thinking a simple fore and aft longboat rig would be more suitable, any suggestions??
  4. So work was shut down last Friday, plenty of time in the garage, and we have had some nice weather to boot, although a chilly wind I got the sliding top for the cabin entrance completed, the strange shaped piece that was discussed above is also completed, looking at the plans again there is a box underneath that goes down to the keel, I'm wondering if it is a rope locker similar to a shot locker, there is a small grating in the middle, also added some bolts and metalwork to the capstan
  5. Fantastic, I wish I knew how to do all that kind of stuff, it really adds to the model, nice work regards Paul
  6. Lovely job Maurice, a fine looking model and the changes you've made only enhance what is a Good model to start with. Regards Paul
  7. Sirius 1796 carronades underwater
  8. Hi Frolick Im not sure anything has been found of the HMS magicienne, the team over there are currently working on the East Indiaman St Geran (1744) and the pirate ship Speaker (1702) I believe, but they are near to producing a shipwreck database which may give some more information, I will let you know when/if I hear anything. Regards Paul
  9. Hi Chapman, if you are interested in the Mauritius sirius please visit my log in my signature below, where I have pictures of archaeology from Mauritius and my build of the 1796 Syrius Regards Paul Thanks Dowmer, beat me by one minute­čśü

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 ÔÇťAdvance Ship Modeling Through ResearchÔÇŁ. 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.
