  1. Hey Dimitry, Pretty sure she had a fashion piece but as this "is" a starter kit and I started 8 years ago with much less knowledge it is like it is. I will not change that, way to risky πŸ˜‰ Dirk
  2. I forgot one step with the deadeyes, a bit of bending πŸ™‚ Then some delicate drilling action to get five holes there instead three. (The other side looks bad ... haha) Rivet as axle: Next some more preparation and metalwork. And today some open heart surgery πŸ˜‰ Sherbourne were started eight years ago and I can't remember why I did some things I did them. Something that bugged me for a while was how I made the stern. That is simply wrong for a cutter. Today I had the mood to change this, deconstruction πŸ™‚ I used ebony here. It's not perfect but much better then before I think πŸ™‚ cheers, Dirk
  3. Ask @dafi he makes the best photo etch brass hooks I know of! Dirk
  4. Thanks Peta, Saint, Sea Hoss & the likes πŸ™‚ Very much appreciated. Some small details: Deadeyes and Chainplates. Some years ago I allready prepared this to build like shown in the AOTS Alert book. For various reasons I did not like it, and .. it is documented HOW to do it in the original plans. So I tried it this way with some prototyping πŸ™‚ As it seems to work, "mass"-production started. To get the needed angle for the chainplates some "rope" were fitted ... And the chainplates were pinned with micro rivets. There is nothing glued (yet). Done πŸ™‚ cheers, Dirk
  5. Just that you know, this book describes a newer Rig then the Sherbourne had and it has some inaccuracies, read here: BUT yes it is a good start to better understand things πŸ™‚ cheers Dirk
  6. Very nice! That's a damn good lookin' Syren Jesse! Dirk
  7. Great work Nils! You might wanna check out this build: https://www.segelschiffsmodellbau.com/t2889f685-Zeesboot-um-ca-Massstab.html Dirk
  8. Thanks Yves & the likes The gaff were blackend after the boom then before πŸ˜‰ Finished gaff and boom today with missing details. So it's macro time πŸ™‚ cheers, Dirk

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 β€œAdvance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.ο»Ώο»Ώ

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.
