  1. My little cutter arrived today to rural NZ. It’s a model boat all on its own! If you think the ship your building needs one, well the answer is yes. Yes it does! Thanks Chris. Just need to finish my current build so I can order an Alert!
  2. There is also this section of the forum. https://modelshipworld.com/forum/98-planking-downloads-and-tutorials-and-videos/
  3. With all the amazing crafts people on here it is easy to get a bit over critical of your own work. But it's your friends and family that will get to enjoy it in person. My first build was quite simple and average at best by MSW standards, but all the people who have seen it are impressed which is all that matters. Yes, on here we can see mistakes or things that we could have done better, but only the members here will see that. And we all have at least the next 3- 4 builds planned out so plenty of time to perfect our skills! Which reminds me, I need to go finish my first planking!
  4. Hi and Welcome from across the ditch. Great look build mate, well done. Please start a build log for your next build so we can follow the journey.
  5. A bit of Threadomancy but what a great build! Thanks for posting such in such great detail. This is my next build and your build log will be a great help. Fantastic looking model and looks good in the case.
  6. @Edwardkenway is also the name of a pirate in one of my favourite computer games. Happy coincidence or do you follow the creed?
  7. I am going to try this technique for my build! Thanks for posting such a great and detailed build log. Your work looks super neat and tidy and something to aspire to. I look forward to following along for the rest of your build. (I’ll also be checking out your Sherbourne build too)
  8. Looks like you have made a great start. I have this as my next kit to build. As another rookie I’ll be following along for the ride!
  9. I have been slowly working away on this still. I have a new found love for the pin pusher! It has also become apparent that I did not fare the bulk heads correctly as I am having some issues with bulk head two. Nothing a little filler won’t fix...
  10. Looking so good. I’m really enjoying following your build log.
  11. https://modelshipworld.com/tags/beagle/ The TAG system makes finding build logs super easy.
  12. Hello! My wife and I spent a lot of time just up the road from you in Saint-Jean-de-Luz in France and we got engaged in Biarritz. We love the Basque Coast. So many great surfing spots! (And not to far from some great skiing too). Spent a bit of time in Sans Sabastian and Mundaka. Great food, people and history! Welcome to the forum.
  13. Hi Martin, Just found your build log and have read through from the beginning. What a beautiful boat you are building! I love that it will be radio controlled too. I’ll be following along and enjoying the progress. So glad this popped up and makes me what to learn a bit more about racing cutters. They look like beautiful ships.
  14. One word of caution that I found with my build is that the supplied sails were much bigger than those in the plans. If you plan on putting the sails on I would make the boom and gaff to suit the supplied sails and not the length in the plan. Other wise I really enjoyed making this kit and it looks pretty good once completed. EDIT: If you change your TAG in the original post and remove the HMS part it will link through to all the other Bounty Jolly Boat builds on here.

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.
