  1. Hey Paul, the Whale Boat is lookin great! For a possible hint on the color scheme, you may try The New Bedford Whaling Museum web site. I know they have a half scale whaling brig on display and several chase boats.
  2. Hey all, Ya Paul I always finish! Also, yes the rigging and fiddly stuff can be annoying so I just take it slow. One bit at a time. The knot board was a gift. My family has always been nautical types. The Navy, private boats, 100 ton captains etc. The knots on the board are daunting. I only use the basics however.... More to post on the Longboat...Back stays and bow sprit. Going to do the bow sprit stay later on then the standing rigging will be done.
  3. More accomplished on the longboat...Began the rigging. Got the shrouds and fore stay rigged. I opted for the method of using hooks to connect the shroud dead eyes. The same way Dr PS and Arthur Wayne did theirs. Looks more "believable" to me. Still have some finish-up on these before I rig the back stays.
  4. More work to post! First, painted the entire hull white as planned. Didn't like that so much...too white! Put on black waterline then went with light grey from the waterline down. I like that way better. Then I glued on the rub rail. I formed a different profile on it than on the prototype. Next came the completion of the rudder and mounting hardware. The horse was also made and waiting to be glued during the rigging process.
  5. Very sharp and clean, great workmanship!
  6. Yes Chuck, I breezed through some posts and I am impressed! This will be a great project for me to learn the scratch build methods shown here. Looks like I'll need to purchase some more tools, but I love buying tools, like a child getting a new toy! Thanks for your response, John.
  7. Hey Chuck, just looking through this project and am wondering if this is a "scratch build" and are there plans and some instructions? I'm sure I could find the answers here but just curious as I'm already involved in a couple of models at the present time....Thanks., John D.
  8. Beautiful model Nils, I think you're right about simulating the bilge access hatches. It is a work boat after all, simple and dependable they are! Also I laughed at the pic of the fisherman with an eel in one hand and a cig in the other...

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.
