  10. tanks for likes! and some more update , am about to get the hull over spryed with some paint before i get to the task of the simulated hull plating. a the model is beginning to look like a ship.. LOL😊( propell on the photo is not for this model.. am using smaller with 4 blades ) svein erik
  11. hi keith, wel.... i dont think so the hull has some strength filler over the balsa, wen dunn it wil get some primer on to get more strenght before the copper, i have also tested the soft copper and the sheet i have is way to thick (007) it has to be thinner 002/003 so i may have to get back using tape.. (snaile tape ... its copper and its 4cm wide and 5 m long)
  12. yust resive a test sheet of soft copper to make all the steel plates for the pequot hull, am going to make some plates so i can see how it work with the rivitts and the thickness . this sheet is 007 thick .... this copper has been burned so it can be bendt in any way you want! svein erik
  13. thanks for the likes moving farword , the bulwalk is glued on and am now shaping the hull with some filler , when am happy with the result, i wil mark /lining off the hull for the steel plating of the hull. the bow keel is my nex task .... so next time i think the hull is ready for some plates... svein erik
  14. thanks for the coments and likes, a bit more work has bin dunn, the wire for lightig is install, i block up the hull and sanded it to shape/faired.... dusting... dusting...😲 The false dekk is glued on also but need to be sanded a bit on the edge around the hull. propell shaft need to go in /the hole has to be drilled out . the next task is to make the bulwark/rail, the keel has to get glued on, so after all this the hull is going to have some layers of filler so it can be smoot before the steel plating task! svein erik
  15. hi Roger wel ..... i do not even now yet... i feal like thomas Edison , there is 20.000 thousand wrong right way to do this but only one wil work.... i wil test this when i have the soft copper roll😉 svein erik

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.
