  1. The whole hull waxed outside.. I'm making new gratings for the front deck. I tried a new style of production with a 1 mm cutter on one side, it works and it's more accurate than a saw.. Comparison with old gratings..
  2. Thank you very much for like .. Door and window fittings .. waxed ..
  3. Thank you very much archjofo and Sea Hoss.. Front body wall .. Medical needle 0.7 mm made pins 0.5 mm .. Stairs worked glued temporarily with glue..
  4. Deck ground 240 grit.. An edge cutter made of waste.. Deck ready for wax ..
  5. Thank you Barbossa. Maple strips were overhead .. I finished the deck planks. I'm just sorry half will be hidden, including hooking.. Next will be grinding .. Main deck..
  6. Hello Barbossa. Maple wood has an ideal hardness, it is well cut and sanded, it holds the edge.💣
  7. Other boards with hooks.. Center of deck .. The last boards at the waterway ..
  8. I slowly continue to lay the planks of the deck. So far, whole boards without hooking .. O. Beautiful photos from the Duyfken deck exchange..💣
  9. Absolutely honest work archjofo !! I'm taking off my hat..!!💣O.
  10. I create "binding strake" boards from linden wood, the deck will be made of maple.. The boards are pinned and provided with paper before laying.. Binding strake laid .. Other boards will be narrowed..
  11. Very beautiful work YankeeD !! I admire your work with gratings, now I also create them, I can appreciate it. Your grooving system on one side is great, I will use it next time as well.
  12. I created frames gratings for the main deck.. I'm starting to lay the deck. There are thicker "binding strake" boards around the gratings. I want to make these from wood contrasting with the deck. I took the liberty of addressing Ab Hoving with the question: May I use the layout of strake boards on the main deck according to his reconstruction of the "WITSEN" pinase? The boards in question are the ones on the sides of the gratings and also the boards closer to the center of the deck around the masts and equipment? Laying the planks of the main deck I will do according to the replica Duyfken ..
  13. Basics of gratings done. They will now be placed in frames..🧐 O.
  14. I did not find a 1 mm saw blade at Proxxon. I got a saw blade from a friend, probably in the former DDR .. Its center is 16 mm, filled with ring 10/16. The preparation is made of waste, the work took a very short time. Ondras Thank you, Patrick

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.
