  1. While the hull is drying, I decided to coat the deck with tung-oil. What can I say - the tung-oil is thicker than the oilseed oil. I richly coated the deck, the absorptivity is nice. My expectations that the deck would have lighter color weren’t fulfilled, but the aging effect was quite nice. I coated it in one layer, i think i’ll leave it at that, but it would be seen after polishing.
  2. I oil-coated it, I decided to coat the hull with linseed oil, hoping it would give a darker color than tung-oil on the deck.
  3. My dear colleagues, thank you very much for those kind words and attention to my work.
  4. Thank you very much Doris. Your work is also gorgeous and I admire your craftsmanship a lot. My best regards.
  5. Assembled . Vitrifaction will be made after oil coating, just before installing in place.
  6. I have made the frame of the deckhouse lantern light in two variations - pear tree and hornbeam.
  7. I have finished the nailing of the broadsides. I opted for the brass of 0,6 mm, and tried to make the nail-heads a little dome shaped.
  8. My greetings, Johann. I completely agree with You, french ships of thant period are very beautiful.

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 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.
