  1. I know how you feel mate. I have shelved my Vic for the summer because if other priorities but also because I had an ussue with one part of the hull that is not going how I had hoped. My plan is to step back for a while and regroup. You are right, a build should be fun and not a burden.
  2. I had the very same thought while I was working on my hull. I strengthened up the mast "seats", now the masts have something to hold them (as well as the rigging which, I was told, would be sufficient if it was tensioned correctly. I just wanted that extra assurance that they were sitting nice and firm).
  3. Yes, I like it a lot and as Kevin said, if the rest of the build fits that style then all is good. It's all a matter of taste
  4. I have to agree with the other guys here, your planking is really nice and clean. Great work sir and a good foundation for the next layer.
  5. I had to widen a slot here and there to make the beams fit snugly. I didn't want to shave anything off the beams themselves, it just seemed easier to adjust the appropriate slot.
  6. That is the plan OC. I look forward to "seeing you" then sir.
  7. I am not too familiar with how all that works. I am guessing that the chemical reaction takes place and does its thing with the wood and that's that. Over time there will be some change but that will obviously take a lot longer.
  8. I have decided to shelf the Vic, at least until the summer and all its many chores here on the farm is over. I keep meaning to sit down and do a little here and there but then other things come up. So, I am going to pack her away for a couple of months. Have a good summer everyone!
  9. I too have made that decision OC. I just have too much going on right now. I feel for you with the hay fever sir. I have 10 acres to mow up here and if I don't wear a mask while I do that I am sneezing and crying See you later this year my friend.
  10. Matt you are to be complimented, you are doing a great job on her and keeping an eye out for the details too. Good job sir.

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.
