  1. Thank you Mark, the fitting of the Carlings and the Ledge Beams will require a lot of fitting, but first I must turn my attention on the Gratings for the Lower Deck and those mattress pads, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  2. Hello Ship Mates Back in the Old Ship Yard again, after working with Bulkheads and Cabins on the Lower Deck. For so long the little fellows and I decided to get back with some larger timbers. We have cut and dry fitted all of the Beams for the Main Deck. The after Beams are clamped in place for the fitting of the Carlings that in time will support the Ledge Beams. We do realize that we have gotten just a bit ahead of our selves. Were waiting for the Grating to arrive but it looks like we will have to set up our little Byrnes Table Saw and cut a few of our own. We will have to speak with our Electrical Technician's about the mess of piled up wires in the Well Area, not a nice sight as it is, Enjoy. Regards Lawrence
  3. Hello Ship Mates We have did a little more on our Oliver Cromwell build, We have added the 3 break down bulkheads for the 3 cabins on the Starboard Side, those of the Gunner, Lieutenant and also the Purser. Can not seam to get going since our R&R Vacation, it could be the summer heat as it has been quite warm here the last little while., but as time goes on things should improve, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  4. Hello Kevin I quote [ Lovely work, lol i hope the comfort of the matresses is up to standard] I am sure that the mattress pads will be very comply as my Admiral sets very high standards in her sewing , ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  5. Hello Patrick Yes I do suppose you are correct with the cretic thing: but you do set a very high standard for your ship mates to follow. But the joys and the hours of enjoyment of trying to improve on ones self makes this model ship building all worth while, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  6. Hello Patrick I thank you very much for your overly kind words and nice comments. I try very hard to come up to your expert- tease but no matter how I try I am always short of what you can do and have done. Never the less I find this model ship building a joy and do try to achieve better results. The little fellows do not ask for much except to be part of this great build. ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  7. Hello Ship Mates We are slowly getting into our Oliver Cromwell Build again. The little fellows and I have built and installed the 3 Aft Cabins on the Starboard side those of the Marine Officer's, Masters and that of the Surgeon’s, the 3 Cabins on the Port side will have a break down Bulkheads much like we have did in the Bow area for viewing once the Cut-outs are installed. We have also given our Request for 8 mattress pads for this deck to our Admiral; they are so small that once she gets started they will be sewed up in no time. ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  8. Hello Kevin Thanks for your very kind words and nice comments, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  9. Hello Kevin Yes it is nice to be back and doing a little work in the Old Ship Yard on the Oliver Cromwell. Slow is the word! seams like forever that I have been working on this lower deck, but the end is in sight, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  10. Hello Piet I thank you very much for your very kind words and nice comments, We are pleased that you are keeping ahead of the Beast, keep up the good work. Sure do miss you on the Form, and hope that you will soon return soon, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  11. Hello Ship Mates A little more work has been done, after out long get away it is hard to get the little fellows motivated. How ever we have built and installed the Bread Room Bulkhead and it's supports beams, that separates the Aft. Cabins ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  12. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all very much for all of your very kind words and prayers for our son Dennis. He came trough the 8+ hours of surgery ok. He still has a long way to go and is in no way out of the woods as yet, THANKS. Well after a long absents and a week long trip of R&R up at the Byers Lodge on the French River, Ont. I have restarted to do a bit of work on my Oliver Cromwell. We have framed in the Boatswain's Cabin and also the Forward Sail Room, we left these low to be able to see the inside of our ship when the cut outs are finally cut out. We have also built and installed the Main Sail Room and also the Aft. Pantry. I do realize that this is not a lot of work to show for almost two months, but one dose nave priorities', ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  13. Hello Patrick I thank you very much for your visit to my build log. Also for your very kind words. Yes the week on the French River was great, lots of R&R that we both very much needed, the fishing was slow at least for us. Have been thinking of returning to the Old Ship Yard and start building the sail room an the aft pantry, these both have louvers much like the upper pump well. Yes our son has a very hard struggle ahead of him. We tried to warn him now for many years about his smoking but to no avail, we tried, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  14. Hi Kevin Thanks for your up date on the Cutty, yes I to do like the 1:48 scale very much as it gives you a lot of room to add tons of detail that I just love to do. The POB will be much easier and much faster than a POF build but not as challenging. Your trawler build is coming along very nicely and I am very much impressed with the skills that you have shown in your build. Will be looking forward to your build log on the Cuddy. A very impressive ship. She was my second build many years ago but to me it just seams like yesterday. I for one enjoyed this build very much and she stured me on to my Oliver Cromwell, that is very challenging and also rewarding at the same time as I enter into the second year of her build, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  15. Hi Kevin Very nice work you are and have done on your St Nectan. Sorry for my late arrival at your build log but I do get so very much tied up in my own little Old Ship Yard that I very seldom look around the Form. I am missing so very much by doing so. I keep telling my self to get out and look around but to no avail. Just love your Led Lighting, I believe that it adds so much to ones builds and it also turns ones ships into a great night lamp, 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.
