  1. Good work B.E. I knew youre going to master it , great looking ! In the meantime ( my Zeesboot) I drilled 0,6 mm holes for the horizontal plank connections, widened them to 1 mm, and glued (carefully knocked in) the points of bamboo toothpicks into the holes with low viscos CA wetting. After trimming and flush sanding it now looks as if all thes connectors have been plugged off with wooden plugs Nils
  2. Hello Geert, congrats, I know its an exiting moment, when the shell is removed from the mold, now you certainly will be starting with the framework..... Nils
  3. Hi Piet, All my build logs of the last years are linked to my signature..., the last was the Chebec "Eagle of Algier" Cheers, Nils
  4. Hi Dirk, your Sherbourne cutter looks fantastic... I like the color giving and the wooden tones, combined with the black. Also the clinker planking, and all the deck fitting out. Very nice photos !! Nils
  5. Fastening points for mainmast deadeyes : two shrouds at both sides are spaned with laced diam. 7 mm deadeye tackles near to the deck. The fastening points are made from 3 x 0,6 mm brass flatt (chem. blackened) with a loop for the screw that goes through the looped endes of the deadeye harness..... Nils Handscetch (not scaled ! )
  6. Pete, thanks for posting that video, its fun to watch the little boat on the lake... Nils

  8. This is the outcome for for an utmost flexible and black rubber hose (received today), trust this will do much better than the PVC one.. Nils

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.
