  1. I have also omitted this detail for the same reason - a skilled shipmaker does everything to avoid seeing these wood plugs in the deck so that they hardly are seen in real size so it seems extra grotesque to highlight them in scale 1:84 Of course it is only my opinion. Jens.
  2. thank gentlemen It has also been a great pleasure to rebuild the well-built model, I could immediately see that it was something special and that only little fittings should be added, and of course new sails, I could have done more at the mast, but with respect for the "model builder" I keep what is because it all seems quite good, and then I can just build my own junior boat from scratch and see if I can do it all better - that could be a challenge. Thank you all for looking in and leaving a commentary Cheers Jens.
  3. I consider the project to be completed. I have a couple before and after pictures. What I most like to emphasize is that I have changed keel and rudder to a more real desine and then to change steel wire to really braided wire. that can be tightened up. And then of course new sails - probably the most significant improvement.
  4. yes it is right but also the keel changes in the same period from 390kg to 290kg
  5. Hi Mark thanks for your fine coment on my build . i look op the pagde and i hope this is the right tiddel : https://digitaltmuseum.org/search/?aq=topic:"Fritidsbåt","pojkbåt" Hawe fun
  6. Hi Denis a last update before I sew new sails and finish this project. I have found on the web a Swedish site where the original drawings for building a Kdy 15 can be downloaded. Maybe I want to build it a little bigger in order to sail with it with radio control. but now first new sails for this one
  7. hi Denis thanks for your fine comments. I actually thought about building a junior boat from scratch. but it is not to get hold of ship's drawings of it, but I have the model which is very precisely done and maybe I can measure it well enough to perform molds to build after, let's see. i build a sleds for the jib rope . and im stil building one for the other side .
  8. hi omar good to hear from you . yes time goes by. I have not built on my cutty for almost 2 years, but when the desire is there I get started again - yes this is just .ting takes time.
  9. hi i look forward to following your project - cutty artesania is a very exciting and high quality building set. I myself built it 6-7 years ago and took 2-3 years to build so when you get there then do not give up but recognize that it may take years to build. I want to follow your construction and if I can be helpful I will be there. just ask. Cheers Jens
  10. Hello everyone a small update on today's work. I have recycled the olde tiller and reborn it as a flagpole - yes it was probably the last thing to put on , but it just fell right to do it now.
  11. Hi Mark It's a pleasure to see your project and I'm very impressed with your brass work, it's awesome.
  12. inspired by the video of "Beat" my old junior boat no. 274 I will now add a hanger at the mast foot. It is for ropes for the sails up and down but when I pull the rope, I pull the hanger up from the deck. I have to weld the thread iron on and stuck it firmly there is still some way to go but this is a picture I have now reached. Cheers All . Jens

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.
