  1. Thank You to all the 'Likes'. This week I worked on the two yards. I have the chance to found an excellent article written by Chuck Passaro on how to improve the details of the yards. This 6 pages article entitled 'Intermediate techniques for improving yard details' can be downloaded from the 'Club-resources' section of 'The Ship Model Society of Ney Jersey' web site. It is very informative and full of interesting techniques. All the different elements were the painted black. Time to work on the chain plates.
  2. Always a great admirer of your work. The Winchelsea is really a superb frigate. Wait to see more.
  3. Superb work. This frigate really has beautiful lines. Thank You for sharing.
  4. Thanks to all the 'Likes'. This week I worked on the gaff and the boom. The parts highlighted in green on the plan will subsequently be painted black. Inspired by Dubz's wonderful job on his HMS Sherbourne, I could not resist adding some details. I will now start assembling the spreader and topsail yards before moving on the painting phase of all these elements.
  5. Thanks to all the 'Likes'. The lower mast was glued in place. The bowsprit and jibboom built and installed I tried to simulate the mast coat by covering the mast wedge with a fine paper dipped in white glue diluted with water. The whole thing is then painted in black acrylic. Time to work on the channels and chain plates.
  6. A big big thank you for this project. This step by step is really very instructive. And seeing the progress of the work using photos really helps to understand the process. Looking forward to seeing more 😉
  7. Wonderful work. Very inspiring. Are you using a serving machine and what type of thread are you using to serve your rope ? The rope is also beautiful. Is it your own rope or from Syren Company ? Thanks in advance for your answer and still a big thank you for sharing your beautiful work.
  8. The planking step continues. Two additional rows were made. Only 3 rows
  9. Thank You to all the 'Likes'. I continue quietly laying the planks. Four rows are now glued. As I only work with wood glue (Titebond), it is necessary to use clamps. To avoid marking the wood, I slide a small piece of cloth between the wood and the clamp. The treenails are simulated after laying each row. Nothing is sanded yet and some small gaps will need to be filled... Still five rows.
  10. Received my copy yesterday. What a wonderful monograph ! The 215-pages book also contains 30 pages of color photos of the two existing 'L'Egyptienne' frigate models, models found at the French National Maritime Museum in Paris (one from the Museum's reserves and is therefore not visible to the public). And what about the 39 plates at 1/48th ! A must to have. A big THANK YOU to M Delacroix for this excellent job !
  11. Thank You Chuck and Gary for your kind words. The kit is a real gem and very pleasant to build. Thanks to all the 'Likes'. The garboard is in place. As you can see, before to begin the planking, the hull has been lined and tick marks have been reported on each frame. Finally, I decided to simulate the treenails at this step. It's easier to position them now.

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.
