  1. You are Building a lovely model!! these elegant racing yachts are a dream. Regards Matthias
  2. I have still another model (LEON / A. Underhill) wich is waiting to being rigged. But whenever I have to decide, whether to do the rigging of LEON, or to proceed with HMS Winchelsea, the latter ALWAYS wins. But luckily there is still a lot to do in chapter one, and all the planks have to be cut… So I will be fine for the next weeks. And if I really catch up to you, LEON will be lucky to get her main mast or something else. Matthias
  3. Thank you all for the 👍!!! And the encouragement. In the meantime I glued some of the sills in position
  4. That looks perfect!!! Do you glue the planks just to the bulkheads or with each other as well? Matthias
  5. Today I did some sanding I think it looks a bit better now. I fixed most of the bulkhead-tips. I had to cut loose one bulkhead and center it properly. So for folk, who glue the bulkheads: Mark the center on top of the bulkheads so you can check better if it is really accurate centered. Otherwise the outer line of bulkheads dance in and out. Every Millimeter out of the center will cause problems if you now what I mean
  6. Thanks Mike, I am relieved, that I can fix it like that. Building this model is a new level of precision. Matthias
  7. I printed the bulkheads again and tried to find out, what happened. There are two or three things that sum up. The biggest is my inaccuracy, when I cleaned up the bulkheads after cutting them out. I often sanded the tips of the bulkheads too much. That is 90% of the problem. The rest is about having not pushed it down into position enough.
  8. Ok that seems to be a severe Problem. I will check out what happened and then try to correct it. Maybe I cut the bulkheads too much on the line + sanding, they became too small, in this case I will add a new bulkhead-half and glue it next to each bulkhead to correct the shape.
  9. I glued the bulkheads into position. That was the easy part. Then I startet sanding the bulkheads, that appears to be the challenging part. I am not totally happy with the result so far, I need to go over it again. One or two bulkheads jump a little bit back behind the line of the others. I have to see, wether I glue something in the gap or sand the others down.

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.
