  1. Thank Yves and Mr. T, also for the likes all! Yes Yves, sometimes hard to get the ball rolling again...But I find once I get started on a build again, the hours blaze by and I find that it's 2AM! Looking forward to see both of your build logs to resume. Also I must add; pardon most of my picture's quality, my phone is junk and therefore, the camera is too. I should buy a decent digital camera in the future.
  2. More done on ECB, wet well installed, left the starboard side open where the look through will be located. The forecastle sole is in with a cut out for the mast. Cabin sole and bunks are in also. Next up, ceiling planks then paint the interior before framing the deck. This is a fun little model, lots of detail crammed in.
  3. From what I can see, you are certainly at least "an advanced beginner". Looks great so far!
  4. Thanks all for the comments and likes...turangi, I am also following your work on ECB.
  5. Waiting now for the glue to grab, began thinking of the next step: the interior details, cabin floor and bunks, wet well (this should be troublesome), but fun to figure out, forward floor and whatever else I can accomplish while the hull is open. Used an array of clamps, somewhat tricky!
  6. Getting the clamps ready to install. Having measured and marked the frames for their placement, went ahead and glued and clamped the starboard one in place.
  7. All frames have been beveled and installed. Transom shaped and beveled then attached to horn timber-knee-box block unit.
  8. Haven't posted for a little while but I have been working on her here and there. For my first real POF attempt, this kit is not for beginners! The manual is not very easy to follow... I realized soon that most of the build will require constant referral to the plans. But that's cool, the plans have lots of info. Many detail shots of the trickier areas. So, bust out the measuring tools and get in that mode of thinking. So, the frames are beveled and installed.
  9. I have also started Emma C. Berry a short while ago. I am now ready to begin on the frame work. Thank you for pointing out the problems that you encountered at this phase. I shall try to keep them in mind to avoid the problems. I will watch with interest as you progress and maybe gain some insight what is to come...
  10. Had to shelf my USS Essex, too many missing parts and directions! Frustrating! Picked The Emma C. Berry for a good price and thought it is a good scale and very sexy ship. She was built and launched down the way in Noank, Conn. in 1866. Known as a "Noank Smack" fishing vessel. Got to it building the keel/skeg section, then putting together the build board and keel support unit with the frame clamp fixture. Ready to start the frames!
  11. Fantastic work! Looks perfect, this build is great.

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.
