  1. From what I see of your build, you will correct and continue w/this excellent build. Rick
  2. I have the parts of the FK marked, ready to glue up and then add rabbet strip. I am retired and have no problem taking my sweet time during each step. I have spent hours studying the plans. I will place a order for the lumber w/in the next week. I have not ordered the lumber pkg, I am playing w/using pear and ebony to plank the hull. Of course, the ebony is for the black painted areas of the build. Just kicking around using colors of wood to replicate the colors as given. I have checked out the video and every build thread f/Cheerful. Rick
  3. As always great to see my ole friend still here too. Rick
  4. Have this thread saved to Favorites for fast access. Wow, you sir, are a Master, and I only wished I could do 1/2 the quality and craftmanship you share. I purchased the frame/starter package and all the then available fixtures. I just retired last year and I purchased this in 2017. Should be placing a lumber order this month. Thanks for the opportunity to try a scratch build, albeit w/your most excellent starter set. Have laid out now! Rick
  5. Howdy Oldmate, just wanted to know if you have made any progress and any tips on your frame build. Rick
  6. Am watching your build. Looking forward to more of this project. Do you after getting the frame too this point have any tips for what you had to think on or encountered during this assembly. I purchased this semi-scratch parts project back in 2017. Have it laid out on the work table just starting to clean and prep f/rabbit. Rick
  7. Just wished to say hello, Have been away for awhile again. But I have retired and have cleaned out the work area to again go into the daunting task of ship modeling. I enjoy working with the traditional materials of wood and card. Thank you for letting me be a member of this site. Rick

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.
