  1. First planks are in place. The wood bends really well.
  2. The bulwarks are in place... The plywood was of bad quality. A 5 minute soak in warm water and it started to delaminate, then i tried it with an iron and just making the plywood a little wet. Again it start to delaminate. After that it broke in two pieces. In the end it is in place and all glued together.... Almost ready for planking.
  3. Upper deck is planked. It's time to start planking the hull.
  4. We got some work done. Planking of the lower deck is finished. It's a shame that all that work is covered up by another deck. The deck is sanded and after that, the part that will be covered is oiled with danish oil.
  5. Hello, After a few years, it started itching to make a new model. It became the Occre Diana. A little disappointment when i opened the box: a lot of the small parts where lying all over the box. The box which contained the parts wasn't closed properly. D/mn!!!! Then sorting everything out and start building. Planking first deck

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.
