  1. Gonna be a really excellent ship when done man I wish I had this kit instead of construction one
  2. Agreed on mine they hadn't cut the slots for the gun port backing to slide in to the frames a bit hit and miss .also the coat of arms for the stern is of poor quality I will prob decorate the rear of ship slightly different so mine prob wont end up as an exact replica of the ship but ahwell since this is first kit I've ever built it's all a learning process
  3. The holes I've cut are to allow small leds so cabin windows and rear cabin windows will be lit up to simulate candle light inside
  4. Regarding the stern gallery I noticed this mess up after I'd glued following the instructions I then reshaped them to how I thought they should look
  5. I was quite fortunate with my kit it seems as the grain ran with the plank I managed to plank it singularly however they do supply with kit the veneers you wish to double plank thankfully into lucky and didn't require them but at least they supplied them
  6. Nicely done m8 yeh I don't mind you posting on this build log I haven't been able to get any further work done on my boat as of yet due to work commitments but I will finish her slowly but surely lol but with the lower hull I found the solder iron bending tool and jig very useful for the angles bends required and a lot of patience I followed the destructions on the gun ports hadn't realised they were really flush in real life but aswell to late now and seeing how you marked the gun ports out seems alot better than the method I've done I've found building her challenging but rewarding good luck with your build look forward to seeing progress and your ideas come the later stages
  7. Thanks alot for the kind words I'll be watching yours for some tips and eager to see what extra detail I can add I believe the kit you have got is probably superior in details than mine😂 I'm definitely gonna need help with the rigging for sure if I ever get to that stage. Wish I had more free time but I'm plodding along 🤞good luck with your build aswell
  8. Work has been manic hardly been able to get anything done on the ship progress really slow but have now cutout all ports and framed them also more work been done on the stern...
  9. Not much time to do stuff this week but now finished laying the lower Hull just sanding to do but getting there. Also figuring a way of lighting the stern cabin windows. Found some useful kit online so gonna go with these

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.
