  1. I made some corrections. First I managed to carefully cut loose the stern frame from the planks and filler peaces. Then I reduced the length of the planks a tiny little bit, in order to get the stern frame a bit more upright. Next, I removed the bottom peace of the qgallery. After checking with the Papier template I glued it in position again. Matthias
  2. Chuck, I certainly will. And thank you for your patience. You are amazing, spending so much time getting my model right. Matthias
  3. Hmmmmmm.... I propably forced the stern frames too much back, when I glued the filler pieces between the last bulkhead and the stern frame. This can not be corrected any more. Maybe I must make new quarter gallery windows with a tiny little bit more distortion. Otherwise the forward ending of the quarter gallery will lift too much up. The angle must be parallel to the planking. Is that right?
  4. Hi everybody. Today I installed the Qgallery windows. I printed some dark grey paper and glued it into the filler peace. The other windows are not glued in position jet. Matthias
  5. After the ivory experiment wit the stern windows, I could not resistent trying to somehow use my ebony piano keys. So here is the result. I hope you are all well. Matthias
  6. Hi Rusty, I am not shure, but check your left and right stern frame. They seem to be too wide. I made that mistake and it was awful to correct it after having glued the transom in position. Matthias
  7. They happen quite often in my building of Winchelsea. I hope, I can reduce that in future.
  8. I had a little battle with my Winnie and that is the result. First I removed the small planks behind the door to the Qgallery. Then I shortened the 3 planks above and cut them loose from the frame. After correcting the shape of the frame I added the Qgallery transom peace and glued everything together again. I think it is close to the position it should be now. And thank you Chuck and Mike for your help. Matthias
  9. Hi Doug, I am fine thank you. It has been a while now, that I did some work on Leon. I was pulled away by Chuck‘s Winchelsea. But I will certainly keep working on Leon. Concerning the companionway, I am not shure. But there is so little space and the hatch is in the way. So I just did not add it yet. I will have to do some more research. Matthias
  10. Thanks Chuck for the advice. I will carefully try to correct the shape by removing the short planks behind the door to the Qgallery, maybe I manage to cut lose the 3 planks above and then correct the shape of the frame. Today the parts of chapter 3 arrived, so I have a good guide with thd laser cut part.

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.
