  1. Hello Daria and Mike Sorry for my late coming, but I do get so very much tied up in my own Oliver Cromwell build that I rarely do look at the great builds in the Form. Daria you are doing a fantastic job on your first build of this little schooner. The fishing schooner Bluenose was my first build many years ago, I can still remember all of the fun and joy of building that ship. You sure do have a great teacher your dad. It sure is nice to see all of those pictures of you two working together building this very fine kit of the schooner Polotsk. Keep up the great work and please keep the pictures coming, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  2. Hello Ship Mates Once again I thank you all for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have been busy this last week building and installing the bulkheads in the lower deck. We have also built and installed the door to the Boatswain’s store room also the Gunner’s store Room and the Carpenter’s Store Room and also for the Carpenter’s Cabin. Just for the fun of it we added a Bed place in the Carpenter’s Cabin, We have put in our Request to my Admiral for mattress and blankets along with pillows that we will need for the cabins on the after deck, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  3. Hello Patrick Your Golden Hind is coming along very nicely, just love all of that detail that you are adding to your ship, it sure dose make her look very realistic, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  4. Hello Patrick Thanks for your visit to my build log, and also for your very kind words and nice comments. I have been thinking of you lately about all of the very nice details that you are adding to your Golden Hind that I found that mine was just to small to do all of the things that I wanted to do. However this Oliver Cromwell dose give me a bit more room to play with, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  5. Hello Ship Mates Once again, I thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Also, for your many kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard things gave been very slow this last week or so due to a bad case of the stomach flue that litterly nocked the stuffing or should I say the wind out of our sails. The little fellows and I did manage to build the Bulkheads between the Gunner’s Store Room and that of the Carpenter’s Store Room and that of the Carpenters Cabin, on the Starboard side. Like the Lower Deck the Boatswain’s Store Room and that of the Forward Sail Room and along with the Boatswain’s Cabin we will build the same sort of a nock down bulkheads as to leave room to see the inter ship trough the Port Side cut-outs that we do intend to apply. We did also have to recut a few of the Main Deck Beams that in our heists did not have the notches for the Carlings that support the Ledger deck beams lined up properly. Now we can go ahead and install all of these bulk Bulkheads and the Mane Deck Beams, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  6. Hello ED I thank you for your visit to my build log, also for your very kind words and nice comments. Yes, that is for sure but it seems that lately, I am having just a wee bit more than my fair share. I do suppose that I will have to pay a bit more attention to these little details, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  7. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all for your visits to my build log, also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I ran into another little problem yesterday. Due to the placement of the Fore Mast and trying to follow the drawings in the TFFM book we placed the bulkhead that separates the Botswana and Gunners storerooms we placed this Bulkhead in back of the Fore Mast. But in doing so we did not have the room to build the cabins and storerooms. To correct this little headake we moved the bulkhead forward ahead of the Fore Mast, this seemed to make enough room for my cabin and storerooms. On a second look, I found that this bulked ran across the center of the two ford scuttles to the lower deck in the Botswana and Gunners storeroom. This is where my second problem came into play. We had to move these two Scuttles forward and replank a bit of the foredeck. This AM we completed this little rebuild. We have tried to look far ahead in out build but the tinest detail throughs the whole thing for a loop. ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  8. Hello Patrick I thank you very much for your visit to my build log. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. This build sure is challenging especially when you are working from two sets of plans, My Harold Hahn plans and those in the TFFM these ships are so very close in size. But trying to fit all of the insides compartments into my ship; leads to a lot of rebuilds, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  9. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log, also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have built and installed the Bulkhead between the Boans and the Gunners storeroom in the Bow of the ship. We have also installed a Lantern in each and drilled in one for the Led Lamp that will be installed later. We did temporally install the Main Deck Beams over this area to mark them out for the Carlings that we have begun to cut in the mill, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  10. Hello Kevin Thanks for your visit to my build log, also for your very kind words and nice comments. Yes, time does fly does it not, not quite a year yet as I started the Oliver Cromwell on 21 May last year. ENJOY Regards Lawrence
  11. Hello Ship Mates I do thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have completed adding the artificial Treenails to out Lower Deck planking as it seemed just a bit to plane. We have cut and temporally installed the Main Deck Beams in the Bow area so as to build the bulkheads in the bow. We later decided to cut the notches for the Carlings since we do have these Beams temporally installed, this will be a job for our little mill, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  12. Hello Piet Thanks for your visit and also for the very nice words and comments. Yes, the redo is behind us now and we are moving ahead very slowly with all of the spring clean up and preparations around home. We have added the artificial treenails to our deck, seams that it looked just a bit plane. We started to build the bulkhead to separate the bow area but soon realized that we needed the Main Deck Beams cut and temporally placed to do so. This we have done and now before we remove them we have decided to cut the notches for the Carlings, this we will do on the little mill. ENJOY Regards Lawrence
  13. Hello Dennis Thanks for your visit. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Yes, I believe that these blades will come in very handy as the build continues. The little fellows and I have completed the laying out the deck with its artificial treenails, now we can get on with the more interesting stuff, ENJOY Regards Lawrence
  14. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all very much for your visits to my build log also for your kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have built and installed the Lower Deck Breast Hook. We also built and installed the 4 Scuttles Hatches in the forward Bow area. We also built and installed the 8 Ring Bolts and there lift Rings. We have built the two Lanterns that hang on the bulkhead between the Boson's and the Gunners Store Rooms that we have yet to build, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  15. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have been busy all week long lugging timbers and planking the Lower Deck on our little ship. We have also dry fitted the Riding Bitts Pins along with the Main Jeer Bitts Pins. This we found to be an awkward little task, as we had to work down inside of our ship as she is still attached to the building board. My Admiral was also very generous and bought me one of those little hand saws by Manwah that came with an assortment of 3 different blades that will come in very handy when we finally cut out her Gun Ports. She also gave me a package of ¼” Chisel Blades along with a pack of # 2 Straight Edge Blades. I guess she figures that I have been shaping my old blades just a bit too much, they will come in very handy, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence

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.
