  1. This was my first experience with model boat building . I randomly choose this model and got addicted !!. It took my 4 months and the did the Lady Nelson. So here is my journey along the way. Current Build: BlueNose II - Artesenia Latina Previous Builds: HMAV Bounty 1787 - Amati; Lady Nelson - Victory Models. Next build : Amerigo Vespucci 1:84 - Panart
  2. My current build in progress after having done the Amati Bounty. I thought I would try something different and perhaps easier before my next biggy... the Amerigo Vespucci. Deck Planking Completed Some good progress made : Now Ready for the sails: Previous Build: Amati Bounty 1787. Victory Models - Lady Nelson; Artesenia Latina - Virginia 1819
  3. I decided to add my build log of the AMATI - Bounty 1787 which was my 3rd Build. I jumped from the Lady Nelson to the Bounty and it was tough at times due to lack of instructions that I assumed would be there. I suppose going from a level 2 type kit to a level 4 means that you don't always need the instructions as detailed and that you would already know what to do. Anyway with help from the build logs on NRG and Donny at Ships of Scale, I persevered thru it and about year later happy to have it completed and shown proudly in my entrance hall. Current Build: BlueNose II by Artesenia Latina Previous Builds: Lady Nelson 1:64 - Victory Model Previous Builds: Virginia 1819 1:41 -Artesenia Latina Next Build : Amerigo Vespucci 1:84 - Panart Dry fitting the keel. This re-enforcing needs lots of sanding. Start of Deck Planking Using Balsa wood to round out the bow. Planking starting to take shape Completed First Planking Added Deck and Trim. Completed 2nd Planking and start of waterline and . Lo Deck Filling out. Looking good at this point. Stern Naming Finally Completed. I did not add sails or furled sails which I was considering.
  4. How did you furl the signs?

      Sorry for the delayed response.  It's been a long while since I did that.  I found some instructions on this site about furled sails.

  5. I have just completed the hull and the deck on the Amati Bounty. I am now ready to start the masts and rigging.. Does anyone have better instructions on this as the Amati one is really bad. I assume the one big plan with the rigging diagrams is to scale Can I use that for measurements and tapering of the Masts. There is no area that show actual lengths or dimensions. So I assume I use that. Any help would be great to get the shrouds going and their placement. Thanks
  6. I started building and chose the Artesenia Virgina 1819 as my first model. I think i did a good job being first time. The Rigging and Deck are decent. The hull could have been better. Being a double plank with applewood and then Mahogany. I have attached the final product. I am now looking for suggestions as to what I should build next, so increase my skill level and experience. A friend suggested the Lady Nelson. It looks okay but looking for something that doesn't look so spidery. Thanks Virginia 1819

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.
