  1. Congratulation for this first class model Marsalv. Excellent work
  2. I can only endorse speeches that have just been made, outstanding craftsmanship.
  3. Hi Shaun It gives some other options to get the shrouds to a equal lenght. Here you can see a other one.
  4. It's always a pleasure to see this fine model Nils. Well done
  5. Hi Christian, I will show a bit of everything. A bit of planking and so much as possible of the frame-build because I have worked so hard to make it. I will apply only 4 strakes below the main-Wales. Furthermore I think to show the ribbands is also very interest.
  6. Hello, Thank you so much for your nice comments and also for the likes. I'm very pleased about this great interest. Here's a little update. Some strakes below the wale and the garboard strake are fitted. The progress is very slowly because It's partial a bit tricky. Also I needed time to find a way to add the planks without leaving any trace at the frames. Therefor the build from Ed of the Extreme Clipper is a great help. In the TFFM-book this strakes are reffered to as thickstuff under the wales. There is a little step from the second to the third strake to see on the following photo. That's why the thickness of the strakes decreases. I will sanding down them when the fourth strake is installed. That's the current progress.
  7. A wonderful model Micheal, very well done.

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.
