  1. Welcome, and good luck with your build
  2. Update, The chimney from the kitchen below deck. On most models, the output faces forward. On the old plan it is directed backwards. Original piece. Adjusted and mounted on deck Extra detail on the channels The windlass Original piece. Adjusted and mounted With extra detail
  3. Thanks. I think it's a standard helmet. I built this model in the 80s (without help from the internet it was searching and guessing) The 2 figures on motorbikes with the Airfix recovery set in scale 1/76 had roughly the same helmet. That was then my only reference https://www.google.com/search?q=airfix+recovery+set&rlz=1C1SFXN_enBE500BE526&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=4SoVkQADE-nmUM%3A%2CixGGk9LuLJDy_M%2C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kR9S9CH25Ykw9FlDldhKTM74iBSFQ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjhi5-L6_blAhWI66QKHQ1UCO0Q9QEwAnoECAYQCA#imgrc=bX6dobsw-r-wUM:&vet=1 Did a quick search on google, It looks like a real standard issue helmet https://www.google.com/search?q=british+motorcycle+helmets+ww2&rlz=1C1SFXN_enBE500BE526&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwin3M6-6_blAhVRDOwKHQ_hBokQ_AUIDSgA&biw=1600&bih=757&dpr=1 Ps, If I remember correctly. There are a few difficult construction phases in this model. You can always ask if something is not clear
  4. Long, long ago I built the military version. The original brand was Esci. i have build al there models on the 1/9 scale Good luck with the build
  5. Great work with the painting And everything else also of course 👍👍
  6. I now have 5 planks on each side of the mast. And there comes central 1 in the middle, this plank will then be slightly wider than the other planks. My knowledge of the English language is not that good (Never learned it at school). So, Mr. Google says chart = grafiek = Since I am active on this forum my English knowledge has improved. But it looks if there are different ways to speak and write English. English english American English Australian English Is this correct ?
  7. Small update, The captain's cabin is furnished. More detail can be added but that is not really going to remain visible. The poop deck planking has started. First a test, the planks are made a bit tapered. Planking in progress. Thanks for following
  8. Small update, Some PE parts have been used (leftovers of military modeling) Looking around this forum for different Bounty logs. It seems like there are different models. Every manufacturer of ship models has its own version. I go for this solution. Thanks for following

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.
