  1. Wonderful model ship ! Thanks for sharing and for all the tips and advice !
  2. I took advantage of the end of the year to finish the planking of the hull. I still have to add the second layer for the two upper strakes. A question : Do I have to follow the same sequence for the installation of this second layer and start with the plank #15 ? Thank You in advance for your help.
  3. Hello Chuck. On December 30, you indicated that Elmers wood filler had the exact same color as yellow cedar. I need it to finalize the hull of the Medway Longboat (some micro small gaps to fill between the keel and the planks at the bow...). As this product is not available in my country, I will buy it via Amazon. But I will be sure to buy the good product... It is found in several shades : natural, golden oak,... Can you give me the right reference (or put a picture of the box) ? Thank You in advance and all my admiration for the wonderful job on the Winchelsea ! 😍 Happy New Year !
  4. Very nice work. Russian master replace ebony with black hornbeam. This wood species seems easier to work. Take a look at the wonderful build log on a 'Friech Boeir Yacht' from Kortes https://modelshipworld.com/topic/19572-friech-boeir-yacht-sperwer-by-kortes-130-scale-finished/?tab=comments#comment-597413
  5. This ship is a little gem ! Thanks for sharing your wonderful work. Happy Christmas !
  6. Superb work ! This rigging work is a wonderful example to follow ! Merry Christmas and good wind for 2020 !
  7. Wonderful work ! At this scale, the level of detail is incredible ! Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2020.
  8. Happy and peaceful Christmas celebrations to all !
  9. The same opinion for me. Choose the simplest solution for you. You are already doing an absolutely remarkable job with the videos 😍
  10. Thanks Dave. All is now in place. The swivel supports are not glued. The tube is just inserted in a hole previously drilled in the wooden support. The guns can thus turn. Time to work on the last piece before starting the rigging job : the anchors.

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.
