  1. Hello all! Here is my current state, I've finished masting and stated rigging. 110 of 120 are built.
  2. Hello! I continue building Bounty, work on masting. Some photos with my progress since last time: Ancors are finished Boat is finished: Work on masts mostly Best regards!
  3. Hello! Some updates in photos Binnacle and building which instruction called flag box Pumps, plumbs and cargo Deadeyes and chains. That was difficult, 36 chains in total, I've made 22, still work on it Started building a boat. It should be one planking layer, but I could not do it good enough, so I puttyed it and started second planking And one more view with stove chimney That's all for now, almost 90 of 120 magazine numbers are behind
  4. Hello! Looks like I finished work on hull Added some decoration, rudder And some deck staff
  5. Looked at my own hatch photo and now I can see, that rings are not ideal. Some of them are really good, but not all. I will redo several to make ideal circle.
  6. Hello! Deck hatch is done. This one from instruction And this is mine I've made 8 thinner planks instead of 6 thick. And made smaller rings. Almost done the hull, in few days I'll remove glue, paint and varnish it and go next
  7. Some updates. Last month I worked on second plank layer and did a lot of sanding, painting and sanding again. Some photos: It was the most boring stage, so one week I had a rest and built plastic 1/72 Corsair And again sanding and painting Last painting and currently my Bounty looks like this
  8. Planking is finished started sanding, it will take some time for sure
  9. Parcel with some interesting has arrived. Some of it I used. Now I'm waiting for another one with drill/grinder, after getting it I will sand planking, by hands it's going to be very long process.
  10. Hello! Not much progress so far, I've almost finished first plank layer.
  11. After day of work. Today has arrived parcel with fluorescent powder, I'm going to do some light lamps. At first I thought about led light but don't want have a deal with wires, batteries etc, so will do lights using chemistry power
  12. Hello! I've made bulwarks and started planking. I'm still thinking about not doing hole in the Ship, because i feel I can't do it ideal, I'm learning on this ship. Also I've noticed that it does not correspond to Bounty anatomy of the Ship plans. Eg. Al kit internals are closer then eaglemoss kit ((( On the other hand I can always place it near the wall and nobody will see it if result is not good enough for me.
  13. It was local ebay analogue, so don't think can be useful for you. One guy bought magazines one by one but never started build and then sold whole set. This part work was issued 10 years ago so only private sellers can have it I guess. Actually it's an Occre kit, many shops have it, Artesania Latina has Bounty in 1/48 scale with interiors shown also.

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.
