  1. Thank you 😊 I will read your build log.
  2. Thank you for the address. These sails are really beautiful. Interested in knowing your work technique. 😉
  3. Superb work ! A pleasure to follow ! Thank you for sharing your wonderful build.
  4. Superb job ! it will be a good basis for the final planking. A good step taken 🙂
  5. Superb Job, Ryland ! I really like the jig to drill the holes for the thole pins. The distance between them is thus perfectly regular. Brilliant idea !
  6. A small step forward. I set up the fixed block at the stem. What I really like about this project is that each step represents a mini-project in itself. I used a small strip of wood of the right width to be sure to stick the 2 elements at the right distance and well parallel. The bolts are simulated and the block is put in place. One last note: with this project, you don't have to worry too much, because Chuck was generous in the elements provided. Any part which represents a certain difficulty is supplied in several copies. In case.
  7. Thank you all for your kind words and thank you to all the likes. It is greatly appreciated. Bob, I'm just trying to do my best. Luckily I am fortunate to have some great examples on this forum. Your longboat is a little wonder and will be an example to follow when I start working on the rigging. Just follow my best. Glenn, the building board is supplied with the kit and is also essential when setting up the frames. I just stick it on a piece of chipboard to make sure it doesn't warp and make it more convenient to handle. And yes, I confirm your feelings, this project is really enriching and very fun. I can only advise him.
  8. What to say ? Just a big Waaoh! Master Korabel can be happy to have an ambassador of this quality to magnify this model ! Wonderful !
  9. Nice work ! Do not rush, take your time and carefully execute each step are really the golden rules and we can see the results here. Superb!
  10. Thank you to all the 'Likes' I added the moldings. After temporarily sticking the boxwood strip on a hardwood square using double-sided scotch, I formed the molder by running the scraper many times over the boxwood strip until I was satisfied with the result. Following precisely the instructions, I then carried out the mast thwart. Finally all the elements were put in place. As my base of blue oil paint is now perfectly dry, I will be able to work on the frieze. A lot of free-hand work ...
  11. Congratulations on this beautiful Lady Nelson. She is really superb. I am sure your Cheerful will be just as successful !
  12. You did a wonderful job on this eagle ! And the step by step photos are really very informative. Thank you

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.
