  1. Greetings SHIPSCAT. Here's another observation about building this kit. Problems started with skeleton .. I keep my fingers crossed for the building .. Maybe this information will help you.. https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=177&t=100656 O.
  2. The deck is already in shape.. I decided to place square drains on the top deck. There are none in the plan, but all ships had them. Preparing the lath... I studied the cannons: The ones in the plan look older..😳 At the end of the 16th century, cast cannons were already used. I've found a current build of a same age replica of Barents' ship from 1595, which already had cast cannons with a carriage with only front wheels. The build is based on archaeological findings of wrecks.. http://debarentsz.nl/home/foto.html A video of awreck of aSwedish ship Mars sunk in 1564, also with cast gun barrels.. Regarding Roter Lowe (1597) there isn't much to be found, I've only found this on Wikipedia.. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roter_Löwe_(Schiff,_1597 As to all the plans in the "Risse von Schiffen des 16./17. Jahrhunderts" book, I've read somewhere that these aren't very good reconstructions..
  3. Carved upper gunports. Frames lined with cherries ..
  4. Have added another strip of planks on the side .. Removed mounting ribs of the main deck .. Grinded the sides from the inside and measured the gunports of the main decks.. O.
  5. The deck, repaired, now looks more realistic..👌 As a reminder, here is the old version..
  6. I found out, that the plank gaps are too wide. I therefore removed the deck and I'm going to use a thinner paper (0.09 mm). It is better to redo it now, than to end up having to tear down multiple decks made the wrong way.
  7. Thank you, Backer Treenails on the front wall.. O.
  8. Thank you very much zappto!! Front deck.. I wish all model builders all the best in the New year 2019. Ondras71

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
