  1. I built up the forecastle bulwark and did the planking bulwark outside. I used the laser cut rail of the poop deck and planked rail inside and outside.
  2. Forecastle, channels and the rudder are in place. The forecastle deck was planked wıth 2x3 mm walnut strips. The rudder and the chammels were planked with 1x4 mm walnut strips.
  3. I finished the second planking. After a light sanding I glued the wales and futtock riders. I used 2x4 mm walnut strips for wales and 2 layers of 2x4 mm walnut strips for the futtock riders.
  4. The second planking is complete. Dear friends, I would like to ask that if it is a good idea to add the treenails or false nails on the hull of this model. What do you recommend? Thanks in advance. Scale of the model is 1:50
  5. The second planking continues towards the bulwarks. Starboard side is complete.
  6. The second layer of planking of the hull continues. The port side is complete and the other side is close to the finish.
  7. Hello friends. Due to the problem with my laptop I have not been able to post the updates on my SM for a while. I installed all the decks and planked them, I attached side sheets and did the bulwarks inner plankings, completed hull first planking with 1,5x5 mm basswood strips instead of 2x5 mm balsa strips given with the kit. I completed stern planking. I started the second planking of the hull with 1x4 mm walnut strips given with the kit. Here are the updates.
  8. I decided to make treenails with the toothpicks. I drill 0,8 mm of holes on the planks and insert the toothpicks with a little PVA. After glue dries I snap the toothspicks off and sand the suface for finishing. By the way, I glued the poop deck as well.
  9. All of the decks given in the kit have simulated planking on them but I will cover them with walnut strips to get a more realistic look.
  10. After HMS Pickle I started Santa Maria kit of Mantua which I bought three years ago. I will modify the kit a little during the construction. Everybody knows about everything Santa Maria. So, no need to tell about her history. I did the framing and glued the main deck in place.

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.
