  1. Yup, that's been on there for many years. It's been so long that I wouldn't be surprised if there were never any new Nelson's Navy kits. Doesn't matter though, we now have Vanguard Models (Chris Watton) putting out great new kits.
  2. I've put all this stuff together, the pieces fit perfectly and they are easy to remove from the sheet. So far this kit has been a pleasure to work on. I look forward to seeing your progress.
  3. I don't know if you're just being modest, but I like to see mere mortals working on kits too. I'll never achieve the results of modeling gods like Chuck, but enjoy it nonetheless.
  4. It's basically done. There are a couple more things I can do to it, but I may or may not. I'm calling it done. I have the MASTER KORABEL BRIGANTINE PHOENIX on the way from Model Expo, should be here next week. I may try to shoot for more patience and higher quality work on that one. We'll see how that goes. Here are the final pictures to wrap up this build log. Thanks for following along.
  5. I have the yards on and most of the rigging done, there are a few more things I need to rig. Then all that's left are the flag poles, anchors and bulwark guns. Should be done in a couple days.
  6. I believe I have all the standing rigging done. Now to work on the yards and such.
  7. Finished the ratlines and got the forestays done. Now I need to start on the topmasts.
  8. Hello Dkuehn

                      I have just been looking through your log and the ship is looking good. I go to see the replica of the Golden Hind in London about once every two month when I go down to see the Cutty Sark, and visit the national maritime museum. I know it’s a bit late now, but here are a few photo showing along the hull. It’s hard to take photos of her as she is always surrounded with visitors. Maybe they will help with any painwork you do. Regards DAVID



















  9. For the ratlines I photocopy the full size plans and cut out the ratlines and use that as a reference for tying them. (another post for extra procrastination)
  10. I have finished up the shrouds and the port side gunport doors. Now I need to start the ratlines, so I figured it would be best to do another post as an effective way to procrastinate actually tying the ratlines.
  11. The bulk of the shrouds are rigged, still have some mizzen mast shrouds to do and I need to tie the shroud pairs at the top on all the masts. Then it's lots of ratlines mixed in with gunport doors. The guns on the bulwarks I'll do after the ratlines, they tend to catch the line as I'm tying it.

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.
