  1. Hi I realise I'm a little late into this log but reading through it I have say you're doing a beautiful job of her. Your carving is very good. Keep up the great work Cheers Jon
  2. Thanks for kind words LS As for the holiday it'll be sandcastles and swimming pool all week. But it will be fun Cheers
  3. Hi all This update wasn't supposed to happen now but due to the weather here (rain and more rain) work is on hold and I find myself with time to head to the shipyard. So I rectified the deadeyes port and starboard, and finished rigging the guns. I decided that the deck pumps needed a bit of something to make them look less like two short pieces of dowel, so I planked them, maybe they are a bit too chunky but they're going to stay that way. Fitted all rigging blocks to mast and spars ready for when I get onto the rigging. Glued down most of the decks furniture and got the anchors rigged. Now I don't think that the anchor cables would have both been turned round the windlass but I like the look of them like that.this was my first time in my new shipyard as I've been evicted from the kitchen table. Anyway it's stopped raining so it'll be back to work tomorrow. Work on Sherbourne will stop now til the end of August for a holiday with my grandchildren and others of my family. Cheers and thanks for all the likes, comments and advice. Til September 😎
  4. Hi LS Even if the finished hull is an oil or varnish, the pin holes can be used for treenails, thus saving a little bit of drilling 😆 Cheers
  5. LS very nice job your planking looks great I'm interested to know wether you used it on your 2nd planking as well Cheers
  6. Hi LS I know exactly what you mean as to trying to square the oarports, I attempted squaring them but gave up after splitting a plank on the internal bulwark. That said round or square it's looking very nice. Cheers
  7. Nice touches, I really like your Sherbourne😃 I am waiting with anticipation for more updates

  10. I like your idea for rigging the cannon LS should make it easier than the way I did it. You are fairly flying with Sherbourne. Cheers and good luck
  11. Hi nikbud, I hope you've got some Wizardwood from the Rainwilds for her. The Liveship trilogy are a fantastic read so I'm eagerly awaiting the conclusion to your build. Cheers.

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.
