  1. Well fathers day, my girls came round, grandkids with them, got the usual chocolate but then they gave me a jewellers lens head set, going to be perfect for all the small work and rigging. Ok so finished planking the deck, just need to sand it. I have decided not to do treenailing as I have got a few wavy butt joint runs. Fitted the wales and the gun wales, I think that what that strip between the gun ports are called?? Painted the wales before fitting and then again after sanding, I maybe will give another coat of paint. Next time I'm starting to do all the deck fittings. We'll see if my new glasses help at all 🤓
  2. Thanks Russr. Tony I will probably use that method on my next build as for now I have scribed the planks to the bulwark. I kinda like it that way because it has grown on me with it being quite simple!! Thanks

  4. The decking is started. I must admit I did want to edge it as Tony did his but not enough skill plus lack of a compass or dividers left me pulling what is left of my hair out!!😤
  5. Hi Jörgen, I will definitely give treenailing some thought but for now I'm not going to do it Jon
  6. Tony, Henrik The deck will be laid without treenailing, then I have the option to do it later if I change my mind. Thanks for your opinions
  7. We gotta get out of this place - The Animals
  8. Tony Yes, I prefer B. It is interesting to note that the treenailing in the deck of Pilgrim is barely visible, therefore it makes me think wether to bother doing it at all. But then again I do like the look of it on a finished deck!! I will have some time out and think about it😀
  9. As promised photos of the sample decking. My personal preference is sample B . Any input welcome, thanks.

  11. Thanks Henrik, I shall give both versions a go, photos will be posted for a straw poll as soon as I can
  12. Hello again, just a quick question, when putting the planks down for the deck what is the best method of simulating caulking?

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.
