  1. What ever you are going to build, start with knowledge of hull planking. Read the pdf simple hull planking for beginers. http://modelshipworldforum.com/ship-model-framing-and-planking-articles.php
  2. This ship has a grand history. Sad that it is rusting away...... should have been restored. Nice to see that you are building the model.
  3. God has provided http://modelshipworldforum.com/ship-model-framing-and-planking-articles.php
  4. That's some incredible work that you did on makeing the block's........... they look real.
  5. Glad to see you back, I really marvel at your work....... it's beautiful. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
  6. In practicing, you make mistakes........ make mistakes on a full size vessel and you will sink.
  7. To do what you want to do, you have to be a shipwright. A model is one thing, a full size vessel is another.
  8. Looking at the pic's Jo......... their is a big distance between bulkheads at midship........ if the distance from bulkhead to bulkhead is 2" or more....... your planks will dimple and rise in those area's....... as you can see on the hull of my 1st build. you could make 2 bulkheads out of 1/8" balsa wood and that would give you the backing you need.
  9. I think she will return, and post photo's of the completed vessel, to close out her log.
  10. THAT'S a great idea popeye........... i'm going to do the same.
  11. With all this activity going on, if she did'nt turn off her e-mail's from this site, we just might here from her.

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.
