  1. Thank you Mark, this is my first ship/Xsection scratch build. I used to scratch build wargaming scenery, rivers,hills, bridges and buildings. So maybe that has helped me with this build as alot of the skills are similar. Cheers
  2. Hi all, @GrandpaPhil thankyou ๐Ÿ‘ @ChadB(GROAN)๐Ÿ˜‚ I have to admit it was after looking at your Eagle build and how great the oiled wood was that made my mind up!! Thank you for your support as I muddle my way through this. So now to a bit of the muddling through, I have planked just over half the lower deck. I used maple for the deck planks and beech for the water thingy against the hull. I'm still undecided whether to do treenails because if I don't do them well they will depress me but then again perhaps I should use this build as practice, I'll think on it. Still working on the gundeck, there's a few more ledgers to fit although the lodging knees are cut and fitted (only 1 edition needed this time round๐Ÿ˜ƒ) Next time I shall cut out the hanging knees. Till then Cheers

  7. Hi LS, What a glutton for punishment you are๐Ÿ˜†, third ship already and it's the Victory. Well I hope you have fun with her. I'll enjoy following you as you recreate this iconic ship and cant wait for you to do the same excellent work as you did with Ballahoo and Sherbourne. Good luck and most of all ENJOY๐Ÿ‘ Cheers
  8. Hi LS, I shall pull up my chair alongside Eamonn and watch avidly. Good luck and happy building ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. Good call Mark, I did some digging in the wood discussion and found a site in Germany (Massiv-Holtz-werkstatt). They have got plenty of species and ready milled wood, strips and boards, no boxwood but pear, cherry, beech etc.. reasonably priced and they ship to the UK. Just need to buy enough timber to justify 28 euro postage. That said my next order of wood will be from this site. @paulsutcliffe I checked the site you mentioned and they've got some decent wood but at the moment I haven't got a saw to cut it with but thanks
  10. Hi Paul, I will check that site out, thank you. I did see some on ebay 340ร—150ร—6mm which I've ordered, but always handy to know where to get more and different types and species of wood. I think your build of Sirius is excellent by the way.
  11. Phil, Mark thanks for the nice comments. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘ I've stalled on this build as I'm getting stuck into the cross section and I'm also waiting to get some swiss pear for the keel, stem and sternpost but I'm finding it hard to get hold of over here without paying through the nose. But hey ho I'll get there eventually Cheers
  12. Hello everyone, @AnobiumPunctatum thanks for looking in. @ChadB I'm glad you like them as they are the 3rd edition knees as 1 and 2 just didn't cut it! WOOHOO!!! another deck to do! I've done it a different way this time, I've used a spot of CA glue just on the edge carlings to make the framework and then filled the rest in using white glue. I didn't have any teak oil left so bought some Danish oil, tested it on some scrap, (Hanging knee edition 1 haha) liked it so put a coat on the lowest internal planks also on the hatch coaming. That's it for today, thanks for the likes everybody ๐Ÿ‘ Till next time 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 โ€œAdvance Ship Modeling Through Researchโ€. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.๏ปฟ๏ปฟ

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.
