  1. Hi all, At last, today l have been able to tuck myself away in my Den. It seems to me that just recently everyone wants a piece of me. Today l managed to complete the imitation coppering, that was no easy task l can say, and l have started on the Deck fittings. These deck fittings are quite fiddly so we take some time l would think. These are the moldings that will hold the railings and netting. And the next image shows the Timberheads at the Bow over the Beakhead Bulkhead. As mentioned before, my next session will, l hope, see me progress through the Deck fittings. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint. Session. Time. Total. 21. 6 hrs. 77 hrs.
  2. I would say you have done a great job on your first planking and have laid the foundation for a superb finish. Well done, its looking great. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  3. Great fist attempt, well done. At least you only have 6 to make, not a full compliment. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  4. Great bit of carving, well done to you. Keep up the good work. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  5. Well l think you have done a super job of the first planking, it looks great. As for your questions: 1. I think you should sand it back further to accommodate the second planking. 2. Any wood filler should be ok but l wouldn't worry to much about pin holes, it is, after all, only the first planking. I only have limited experience myself so if any one with more experience contradicts me then they probably know best. Keep up the great work. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  6. They look a million dollars, well done to you. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  7. They look great to me Dirk and if (l don't know the precise measurements) l were only a few centimetres high l would be happy to scramble up them. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  8. Hi Edward, She's looking good so far. As for the filler blocks, (and please forgive me if I am over simplifying the issue) can you lay a test plank against the Stern and, in the same way you check the fairing of the bulkheads, check the profile of the filler block. If the filler block won't allow a correct lay you need to sand more off. If there are gaps you have sanded of too much and require padding out. I hope this helps but if l have misunderstood you and stated the obvious, please forgive me. Keep up the great work. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  9. Looking great now, l am looking forward to seeing the colour applied. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  10. Superb work Dirk, as always and, as always, thanks for sharing. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  11. Hi Edward, Those strengthening pieces will certainly do the job. Are you putting filler blocks at both Bow and stern? Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint.
  12. Hi all, This morning l managed a couple of rows of coppering but the main work was spent on the cannons. Having said that l think most of my time was spent pondering over the next stages. As with all builds, it is key to look forward and anticipate any problems. This may be my excuse for sitting back and listening to my audiobook. Ha ha. Thay have not been permanently fitted, l shall do that when l have completed the Hull. Next session should see the completion of the coppering. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint. Session. Time. Total. 20. 3 hrs. 71 hrs.
  13. Hi all, This afternoon's session went as planned. Progress made with the Coppering and Cannons painted. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint. Session. Time. Total. 19. 3 hrs. 68 hrs.
  14. Hi all, Three hours this morning saw the start of the Starboard side, regarding the coppering, and l also put together the six gun carriages that will sit on the Quarter deck. Here are the gun carriages being glued together, not as easy as it looks, very fiddly indeed (especially if you have sausages for fingers) Here you can see them "in position" They sit quite well on the Deck and l am happy the barrels will fit through the Gunports. l will paint before fixing the barrels in place but here is a shot of them pre painting. I think they will look grand. Final picture showing the coppering so far on the Starboard side. During my next session l will add to my coppering and perhaps apply some paint to the cannons. Best wishes as always, The Lazy Saint. Session. Time. Total. 18. 3 hrs. 65 hrs.

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.
