  1. Hi Toni, So I had to make changes to include:- Dual fore/aft beam arms instead of the single fore one shown in TFFM as opposed to Pegasus's NMM plans Larger fore hatch due to my mistake following TFFM instead of NMM deck plans, movement of all ledges etc.... because of this. adjustments to all beam widths and knee positions to suit my hull inside shape adjustments to shape of wing transom knees to suit my hull ben
  2. I finally finished up modifying the upper deck plans to suit my hull, now I can actually start building it.
  3. Michael - the tape is ok but i had to use a tiny dab of white glue in places so i could get tension on it and when i moved it around.
  4. So I still wasn’t completely happy with the bow so I took the lines back to the 6th bulkhead and did some more fairing to the bow fillers and the first three bulkheads and I also tore off the drop planks and installed some narrower ones that match the other plank widths in the first belt, this really helped the flow of the planking in that gentle upwards curve after I lined back off again. I believe I’m ready to start planking for real now, wish me luck. ben
  5. Main topsail sheet bits with gallows completed, you can see the blocks there with their respective sheaves made out of ebony to simulate the lignum vitae that they would of been made from.
  6. So I have added lines for all the hull planking, you will be able to see where it differs from the original markings and I still have a LOT of tweaking to get it just the way I want it, especially at the bow, this has been a big and time consuming learning experience for me that I had to go through and I will show more pics when I have finished adjusting and playing with it. BTW - it’s almost all lined off with black thread but then I came across some 1/64” wide black graphic tape on Amazon that was the same width as the thread and is much faster to add and adjust than the thread, can you spot where I used it? ben
  7. Managed to get back to my Winnie, I decided that I really want to learn how to line off the lower hull entirely to ensure my planking runs are good so I have taken Druxeys advice and will line off EVERY single planking run with black string so as to see how good I can do this, As Im back travelling for work all the time now this could take me a few weeks before I show any progress and Im still plugging away on Pegasus upper deck framing. ben
  8. Really nice progress Rusty, QG”s look great and I know they must of been fun to do. 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.
