  1. Hello Shane I am worried about the planking, it has only got one layer of planks not two like my IL Leudo kit. Jo.
  2. Hello all Just a wee update, I decided to fill the bow part of the hull also as I cannot see that the planks will be secure by gluing them to a small area of the keel. I have not finished sanding the stern filler blocks down yet as I am not sure if the planks finish each side of the keel or in the middle of the keel HELP. Jo.
  3. Hello Shane Wow you lucky man you, they look like nice tools. But hey you forgot to send me that cat scratching pole, never mind I will have to make do with my new kitty litter tray. Happy New Year my friend. Jo xxxx.
  4. Hello shipmates I have just about finished sanding the balsa wood filler blocks on one side. I have to say it seems like it has taken me months to just do one side when it was only a couple of days on and off. Anyway I hope you all have a nice Christmas and a prosperous 2020. Hope Santa brings you all some new kits and tools. Jo.
  5. Shane you can come to my parties any time as long as you do the cooking but no alcohol please 😺. Jo.
  6. Hello Shipmates Just a small update, I have glued the strips of wood round the inside of the bulwarks, I think this is the edge of the deck planking as they are on the same level. Also this helps reinforces the weak spot at the stern, I also have two more strips of wood to be glued in that area also so it will make it more stronger. Happy day. Jo.
  7. Hello all Thank you Tom, Mark and Phil. I will put some balsa wood in them areas. You are all so kind. Jo.
  8. Hello shipmates I have completed the framing and the 4 strengthening parts at the stern. Next up is some parts that go round the inner part of the frames. Happy days. Jo.
  9. Hello Popeye and Steven Thank you both. Popeye re weak point on the stern, it was more about luck than anything that I found it, when I cut the tabs and tried to take it out of the wooden sheet I noticed that the end started to twist, so I stopped and re-cut the tabs again, when it came out I could move it side to side so I thought I was in big trouble if it snapped it in half. I am sure I read someplace that if you put some CA (thin) on wood it will make the wood stronger so this is what I did. That is when I asked about this on my log. Can I say thank you all for your suggestions. Happpppppppyyyyyy dayyyyysssssssss. Jo.
  10. Hello Shane I am lost for words my friend, you are sooooooo gooooooooood. Wish my build was as nice and clean also crafted like yours. If you carry on like this you will not be talking to me 😢. Jo xx.
  11. Hello all Yippppeeeeee I have started gluing the frames on. As I don't know much about other kits I found this one a wee bit different from my IL Leudo kit. This one you have to glue the frames on the keel then put another bit of wood over the top of them, this is from the stern end and from frames 4-11, then do the other frames. I will now finish the other frame today. Happy days. Jo.
  12. Hello all I have been thinking about this weak spot, when I get the first 3 frames on the stern and the 4 bits of wood that go in between them I think I will also put some balsa wood in also. Jo.

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.
