  1. Hello, nice color combination and very clean work. I bought my barrels for cannons but turned your own it is a different level - yours look super.
  2. Thanks Dupree for your words. Thanks for likes too.I am now working on the "second floor" or gun deck and then I will add some photos again.
  3. masterpiece-Meisterstueck-chef-d'œuvre thanks for sharing this
  4. Thanks Pete, its maple wood from USA, they call it Hard Maple. very bright sort of wood hard with almost no grain and with little mirrors on radial cut.
  5. Hello,thanks for your likes and thaks for looking. A little update: lower deck, carriages, planks for wales, deck planking, treenailing...
  6. Thanks Mike. I made some changes in space for main mast, as seen on in ChadB build, thank for inspiration, very nice.
  7. Hello and happy new year. I lost my old computer with all data but I found some pictures on my camera, so here it is:
  8. Hello, little update, here are the wrong pieces I must replaced with better ones. I made building board of old furniture board. Also marked off space for keel( false keel). Glueing keel with false keel together - I used PVA glue with black acrylic paint - It is not so good visible but maybe it come out with coat of varnish. Last thing is unify joints for keel in every frame, I fixed frames on board with rectangular attached pin which fits to the groove for keelson. Then sanding until keel fits perfectly to the rabbet.
  9. Hello super job with framing and very nice explanation. I am just doing the same, thanks for sharing.
  10. Hello, So I printed plans of frames, numbered them and glued them on 5mm thick wallnut sheet. here was important to glue the pieces straight and correct - as I later recognized and must redo 5 pieces, but with 9x11 pieces it was ok. And then made a little dust in my living room with scrollsaw. I enjoyed this work and with my proxxon saw blades it was quickly. I clean up ends of every piece , for this I has no machine, but for this was enough chisel and sandpaper glued on small rectangular wooden stick. I glued each plan of assemly on a small platte 9mm MDF. And then try and adjust the pieces until it finally clicked together. I glued them step by step I let the glue to dry and then added other pieces. Little training with treenails.
  11. Hello, thanks for access to plans and for welcome to Triton builder´s club. Mike thanks for looking and comments - it is not my idea with this scratch tool I saw it in some Triton full build here. Exacto blade was not ideal (very brittle)- it was only try on photo - better is blade from snap-off knive. I am working on frames - next time I add some photos of this work.
  12. Hi Chris, thank you very much for your comments. I´m preparing for planking, It will be hard job with 2x6mm sapeli planks, but it is challenge. I thought it is a slow way of constructing a shipmodel but you come with better name for it - methodical, thanks. All this things I made moreover (against plans),is because I want to show the lower deck through hatches and captain cabin through windows. Same I made with my Santa Maria, but this time will be more lights under deck beams - but this is for next update.

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.
