  4. can I wow? this is the speed i like :))
  5. Congratulations Vaddoc , you have built very beautiful boat you should be proud of. thanks for sharing it on the way.... V.
  6. Many Thanks for encouragement Everyone. i dug into deck planking, in my case Cutty one yesterday. unfortunately i do not posses a book from Mr. Longridge about cutty and model but he states planks would be in my case about 20 cm long and I have also a laydown pattern. Campbell provides width. i am about to lay 1 mm thick ones, and 5 and 3/4 " - so i will use 6 mm wide lime planks. pretty big huh? not settled with caulking yet but i am about to try first how both metods turn out - pencil or black paper. i have nice auite thick one.... or i guess it will be both sides penciled as those planks are enough wide for thicker caulk i guess... i would prefer pencil as quicker labor i guess but i am not hurrying. not sure what looks more oomph... if anyone has any own trick or so i would love to learn. i speculate how i lay king plank straight and omit deckhouse so i can spare some wood but i smell accident that i would like to avoid. any small misalignment will pay dearly i guess . just a queation pls would you go for tree nailing being it your place ?:) good modeling to everyone . Vlad
  7. Thank you Brian, sweetens the heart. i hope iwill be ever satisfied so i dont need to redo again...:) by the way i remember your lovely steamer chaperon. i enjoyed it a lot. Vlad
  8. Hello. Topgallant rail decorative panel finished and finally changed. Installed. Every section now rounded, sanded and each individual panelling lined with knife strokes. Middle columns bevelled around edges. this hassle Gave me headache but main rail secured firmly withstanding shrouds so no accident. had to be improved though. Next stage. Individual deck planking. Will take thru all summer i guess as summer calls for other activities :))

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.
