  1. Great work Juzek. Have You got any problems with plans on this stage of building? I ask because, i also started on the same ship but in 1:48 and i found some inaccuracies. I keep my fingers crossed and tracking on with fervor Your actions Juzek.
  2. Great work. Can You tell Us about wood, which You use?
  3. Gentlemen, thank you for additional information about literature. Metric is one of the fundamental issues in the construction of the model. Last year I bought among other things, the book Architectura Navalis Mercatoria written by Fredrik Henrik af Chapman. Amazing book. I can personally recommend it each of You. About Blaise Ollivier Traité de construction 1736, I must take look closer this literature position. Once again, thank You for loot of interesting information.
  4. I thank you guys for advice and help in subject. You confirmed my belief that w / the books are really worth buying and costs.
  5. Thank You Marc (i sent You PM). Thank You Dziadeczek. I realize how hard it is to build Fleuron, because I bought this plans. I have just started to study it and that is the reason of my earlier questions. Thank you for those comments. Additional materials are indeed necessary and with pleasure I seeing the pictures that You have on the CD. As for wife, it is probably not a problem (i'm still single )
  6. Gentlemen, thank you for your answers. Can You write something about metrics? Can i found in books information about the lengths and sizes, for example, individual components, etc.? Thnaks Mike
  7. Does anyone of You can give me some information about books and publishing Ancre? I'm interested in exactly 4 volumes edition of "THE 74 GUN SHIP Pratical Treatise of Naval Art 1780". I will try slowly to build a sailing ship Fleuron 1729. I will be basing on the monograph Ancre, but there are a lot of things to explanations. Hence my question whether this release 4-volume edition is worth so much money? Is the books will enable me to obtain the necessary and clear most important information which i needed to build Fleuron (especially vol. 1-3)? I'll be grateful for any information on this subject? Alternatively, what else can You suggest me in the other items that will be helpful in building this model?
  8. Great job. Are the metal parts of the first two images of the last post are made of brass?

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.
