  1. Nice explanation Alan. It shows clearly how everything on a ship is a proportion of one thing or another which eventually leads back to either the length of the ship (keel or gundeck) or the breadth. Figuring out the dimensions gets me jumping too. It’s like a puzzle 🧩 to figure out. 😁 well done
  2. Nice touch Rob. A lot of people don’t take that into consideration. Well done.
  3. Wow, really looking great Paul. Such a beautiful ship.
  4. Nice Rob, delicate work at this scale. I really like the size and look of the chain. Where you get it? What size is it?
  5. I agree with you Maury. As painful as it is to tear it out. If you aren’t happy with it now, you won’t be happy later. I think your new pencil line of the end of the garboard looks about right. The previous placement was too far forward.
  6. Johann, the tackle looks wonderful. How did you make the hooks? They look very scale with the thicker hook body and pointed turned tip.
  7. Mark, if your enthusiasm for the Licorne has dwindled, why not convert your Licorne build over to the Belle Poule? Are the hulls similar enough? Masting and rigging is easily changed. Stern and taffrail is easily modified as long as the hull shape is pretty close to the same. Just thinking from a practical point of view if it is possible at this point in the build.
  8. Amazing figure head carving. Well done. The ship is looking great.
  9. Rob, do you make each crinkle on the jib with a wire loop? Geeeze, I’d go blind! Nice work. 👍
  10. BE, l love the color and patina of the gun. The ones here at the Naval Academy and Navy Yard (US) are more black, but I figure it’s because someone has painted them black to preserve them. I’m not sure what they would have looked like back then, but that looks pretty good to me. 👍
  11. Johann, You misinterpreted or mistranslated his comment. He was referring to a Tennis shot. Your work is superb.
  12. Ed, how did they get up to set the sky sails? Just curious 🤓
  13. 😁 Just trying to help LOL 😂. Your shipbuilding skills are still way above mine. Keep up the marvelous work.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
