  1. Aaaand....they are upside-down (check my October comments and numbering of the Left and Right parts). Those longitudinal groves are for forming only and should not be visible. Not a big deal however, on Russian forum some people do it on purpose (they like the effect)
  2. There are more "traps" in this build: 1) markings on B19 are not for beveling, they are guides for gluing L11. And together they form temporary guides for drilling. 2) Waterways should be glued "upside down" (the glue goes on the upper - marked side) 3) Pay close attention to the right and left parts, sometimes they are intermixed on the plates (for example bulwark D2L sits together with R planks and vice-versa).
  3. Not now. The second planking should be glued to the bulkheads only (as far as I remember the instruction manual suggests this) and then you will see if it needs filler.
  4. On amazon marketplace they range from around $6 for "used, acceptable condition" to nice, round $100 (+$4 shipping) for "new"
  5. In Shipyard models the first (of three) layer is just for the strengthening the hull. But fairing of the bulkheads shouldn't hurt...
  6. After some creative googleing I found this album on facebook: Download while it's still there M.
  7. I suppose all the photos disappeared because he was going to publish this log as a book with Shipyard. It's on their website, but I never saw it anywhere else (various online shops show it as "preorder, available from July 2015") http://model-shipyard.com/gb/books/318-bo001-the-lost-quay.html Anyway, here is another build log of this model: http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/ships-watercraft/16865-papegojan-1627-lasercut-1-72-shipyard-models.html And here is "regular" 1:96 log (in Russian, but the photos are universal): http://www.cardarmy.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4532
  8. I've just noticed this message on the webpage: To our foreign customers. The translations of manuals into English are currently at the beta state. They are correct, but the language is a little rough. Here is the list of translations that can be downloaded: MK0302 Schooner Polotsk Might come in handy
  9. What is the meaning of the word "arsenal" in this case? I know that the historical ruins called "Arsenali" (eg. in Heraklion, Crete, from Venetian period) are in fact places where the ships were build, not the places to store the weapons/armaments. If that's the case, then the term "admiralty model" is very close, or even the same? Edit: link added

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.
