  1. Printed and cut out pattern for False Keel yesterday. Made a trip to my local Home Depot for some 1/4" plywood and sandpaper. My Wen Scroll Saw should arrive from Amazon this afternoon and going to practice with it awhile before starting the cutting of any Winnie parts. Heading out the Walmart early this morning for a can of Krylon spray temporary glue.
  2. Thanks for shipping my orders so fast!


    Just ordered a scroll saw and need to know what thickness of plywood and how much is needed for the bulkheads etc.


    Thanks - RBohlman

      Check the materials list in the other tab of the group build.  There are tabs all along the top of the group area.  In there is all the info you will need.

  3. Received my order yesterday from Syren for the laser cut parts for Chapter One of the Winchelsea 1764 project. I ordered the parts for Chapter Two and the Brackets for the false keel last night. Ordered a Wren scroll saw and extra blades from Amazon this morning, I have also been watching YouTube videos on using a scroll saw.
  4. Final Photos of completed New Bedford Whaleboat. Thanks for all the help and comments during my build! Wishing you all fair winds & following sea!
  5. TO COMPLETE: Finish making the two Lances and add their lines. Mount them in the post Lance stand. Hand sew Tub covers and stencil "SB" also stencil "SB" on the Water Keg. (Starboard Boat) Make fake sew stiches on both Nippers. Make Grapnel hook for in boat stowage. Make a Boat Hook for Whaleboat per directions. Well Mates, that be all and she will be completed. I will post final photos once I finish her!
  6. Getting very, very close to finishing my New Bedford Whaleboat, so I ordered the laser cut parts for chapter one of the HMS Winchelsea this morning from Syren Ship Model Company. Looking forward to the fun of building her and learning about non-kit building!
  7. Working on harpoons and lances. I finished the install of the racks and attached two harpoons to the starboard rack. I am not sure at this time if I will be making the covers for the harpoons/lances as I like the look of the uncovered irons on the boat. Looks like all I have remaining is: 2 knives, 1 axe, 1 harpoon stand, some leather on a few spots, and a tub covers. Going to cover one tub but leave one without a cover. Think I will sew two and stow one next to the main tub. Going to mark the covers as to the boat location on the vessel.
  8. Bob Porter somehow made multiple posts of the same statements on my Whaleboat build page. How can remove the extra posts? Thanks!
  9. I am planning to try my 1st scratch model with the HMS Winchelsea. I have a little work to finish on my New Bedford Whaleboat before I start. I will most likely be purchasing some of the laser cut items. Looking forward to this as a fun project and a great learning activity.
  10. Planning to start the build as soon as finish my whaleboat And I will start a build log! 😊
  11. Just purchased the plans from the NRG store. Looking forward to the forum and build! Thanks Chuck for all your hard work.
  12. Completed my Whaleboat sail, Sewing, Grommets, and Boltrope finished. Ready to bend the sail on to the mast in the morning. Already started working on the harpoons and lances.

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.
