  1. If we look at this complete drawing. Life on board of a 16th century ship was fun.... 🙈 Eating, drinking and the "other pleasures" in life. The only one who looks serious is the captain.
  2. Building the mast tops Mast tops The size ?? In this era you will find all sizes : small, big, high, low. Looks like 2 armed soldiers or sailors should have enough space in it. And the "supports" under the mast top are usually longer than the bottom diameter of the mast top (white arrows) The top of the main mast is usually slightly larger than that of the fore mast. First did some testing with paper before buildig the "baseplate" I first do the main mast until the base plate is ready, and then do the same with the fore mast. Thanks for following
  3. Yes, There is a build log of the Mamoli GH here somewhere on this forum The builder also opened these holes later in the build. Great work so far

  5. Send me a pm when you start this Always useful to find something. and everyone immediately sees what you are building

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.
