  1. I found the tool rest too short in width, but also the tightening knob would also get in the way of the cutting tool. I've since replaced the plastic knob supplied with a wingnut arrangement which is much better.
  2. Love your work. The attention to detail is amazing. I'm hoping to use a lot of your great photos and information about this build with my own attempt at the Dreadnought. I have the Pontos PE, but am also sourcing other companies to complement the build. Thanks for the great contribution you have made to this great ship.
  3. Can someone let me know the recommended internal dimensions of a display case for the Caldecraft Endeavour 1/64 scale ship? I'm making a wooden glass display case but haven't yet completed the model.
  4. Thankyou Hsae The figures are in fact Gunthwaite figures.
  5. Just a quick note to say how much I admire your build log. Excellent detail followed by excellent photos. Very inspiring, and sets a very high standard.
  6. Fantastic log. Love the photos, and information provided. Very inspirational.
  7. Thanks for the help guys! appreciate the feedback. I have looked at a lot of views of planked hulls on the internet and have seen the majority appear to have the planks below the wales butting the sides of the planks above. Including the Endeavour replica ship! However It does appear more aesthetic if not realistic to have the planks all meeting the stem.
  8. Thanks normanh. I agree with the bulkheads. managed to finish the planking in this area finally. Need to sand and varnish later.
  9. Hi I'm at the 2nd planking stage of my Caldecraft Endeavour ship. If you look at the attached photos you can see where I have got so far. I have still to complete the planking and do the final sanding. I need some advice as to the best way to lay the final planks. And how to bring the planks forward to the bow and back to the stern. I presume drop planks/steaslers are required, but I'm not sure how to do this? Any advice would be very appreciated.
  10. Very definitely. Have you read 'The Cruel Sea'? a contemporary count of a corvette such as this.
  11. Ha ha, thats funny as I'm using Timbermate. Just wondered if it was a good material to use or if there was something preferable.
  12. I just googled spakfiller and it looks very useful. Will give it a try.

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.
