  1. Thought I’d share a picture of the plank bending station that I made, very similar to Chucks with a few refinements of my own, it’s screwed onto the end of the build table of Winchelsea to keep everything close and together ready for when the time comes to add the two strakes below the Wales and when bottom planking really gets started. ben
  2. Thanks Druxey, I just wish I could live up to yours and Greg's standards for a build! I am trying my best to get better every time - and this is the best I can do so far! Spectacles are now are part of my life! ben
  3. Thanks Everyone - I'm switching back to Pegasus for a bit, see you soon. ben
  4. Work has restarted on Pegasus, completing the upper planking and treenailing, then I have to machine the upper deck beams. ben
  5. Upper planking above the Wales in Boxwood has been completed, now to install the two strakes below the Wales and start machining the ebony I need for the 2nd layer of the Wales. Covid-19 does equate to more modeling time. ben
  6. Now you have just shown some real character, its tough sometimes to start anew, but you will be happier with your model knowing that you did so. I have felt the heartache of these problems - you are certainly not on your own! ben
  7. I use this online company for all my large printing, they do great work. https://blueprintsprinting.com
  8. Well here is my port side frame reveal completed, in the end it turned out to be 23 frames that i could fit between the bulkheads. I did the treenails with 20lb black line and reversed the pattern aft of the deadflat frames. I'm so happy with how this came out in the end that I'm considering building one on the starboard side as well but we shall see. ben

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.
