  1. Welcome! Preshape everything and use PVA craft glue, those are my 2 cents worth of advice.
  2. Your model is looking good, don’t get discouraged. The great thing about a wood kit is that pieces are easily replaced, if need be, especially if you can take a pattern off the original.
  3. Thank you both! Yes, the gun carriages will be made of card. I’ll use the exact same method I used for the Victory and the Prince de Neufchatel.
  4. The cap rails are on. The only railing remaining is the taffrail.
  5. While waiting for my bulwarks to dry, I started working on the transom (I promise that painting will happen in the near future). I knocked down the transom about 1/16” to make the gap that can be seen in that painting.

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.
