  1. Here we are again. Long time not coming back but a lot of advances have been made After 6 attemps, the final benches were in place Gunwale Oar guides And finally the Oars That's it for now
  2. Hello These plans are part of bigger project, the one that Jose Collado is working on in this Foro. Spanish 68-gun ship of 1752 by Isidro - plans of Isidro Rivera and construction by Jose Collado Isidro will have the plans once the 68 is ready to go. Regards
  3. But...... Not everything is going smooth....... I found this big mistake This need to be corrected. With Heat, water and a little vises ...... this was the result
  4. Hello all After reviewing the Compass Rose, i realized that: The color contrast is not good The size is going to be a problem in the future So....in the same way that this building process has been going I decided to repet it. With the same idea I install a liz flower in the back of the officers place As well as the bench floor frame
  5. This "Falua" has a little shield in the back side of the rudder (?? is this the right word?). Its form is curved. So to fix it, I went attaching to pieces of basswood and made the cuts. With the cylinder sanding tool I gave it the curve form Attached to its place
  6. Let's start with the stern benches. These have an special form. So I decided to build like a "mold" I duplicated them, creating a back support for the little placks. Using the same template, I built the top of them

  8. Yesterday I started to work in the different floors. The stern floor Two important messages The boat reality is different to the plans The decoration according with this reality is out of scale. THEN...... this job need to be repeated.
  9. Finally, copying the Jose Collado idea, I decided to work in the stern/officials floor. Introducing a Compass Rose. For this effect, I decided to go after a "parquet" method. 1. I took basswood and abarco. (tropical wood), and cut the triangles according with the mold 2. I arrange those triangles according to the mold 3. I glued them all 4. After, on a 1mm triplex I completed the floor with red cedar.... and this is the result
  10. The unmolding process was a little hard, but at the end, just one frame suffered a little bit The false frames mold..... ended its life time
  11. Here we are ...... During the week, I finally saw the light.. liked the wood color contrast. Since those are tropical woods, I had no idea how they would look like, after the danish oil. I really liked it. NOTE: The keel is in tropical mahogany which is more light and the hull is in tolua Last edited: 23 minutes ago

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.
