  1. Thank you so much for great videos. I have a question Chuck. How do you taper the planks? Do you sand or cut them? Thanks.
  2. Great work B.E. May i ask how you remove the pins after gule dries. Are you nailing half the nails or you have a special tool for it?
  3. Starboard side planking goes on. Last three planks to complete
  4. Thank you. I have learnt one more thing, i didn't know this. I am not sure if they are pure brass. I will never leave nails on my next builds anymore.
  5. I am making some accessories. (Rudder, windlass etc.) I will continue planking of lower part of the starboard side later.
  6. Port side hull plankig has been completed and I did a little sanding.
  7. False keel in place. Planking continues. One side is about to complete.
  8. No, I will not take out the nails. Normally lower hull of Pickle (below water line) is covered with copper but i am planning to cover with mahogany veneer. Upper hull will be painted. So, nails will not be visible.

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.
