  1. I've been working on both the staircase and the boiler
  2. Thanks coming from you that means a lot!
  3. I've been working on this Brig prior to starting the Paddlewheeler but have kind of put it on the back burner.
  4. I started work on the main deck structures.
  5. I detailed out the rubbers to make them look a little more authentic.
  6. I made a pair of rudders and some brass mounting pins on which i turned shoulders some the rudders would have a positive seat.
  7. I got the planks for the paddlewheel done and mounted so that pretty much completes the wheel. I made the pillow blocks and mortised them into the cylinder timbers and attached them with bolts. The bolts will get washers in the final assembly
  8. I got the cylinder timbers made and installed and am working on the paddlewheel buckets next.
  9. I got the individual wheels of the paddlewheel painted and the styrene rings attached.
  10. I got all 4 wheels of the paddlewheel built and have them mounted on the shaft with sized spacers. The spokes of the wheels appear to be in sufficiently good alignment to allow attaching the buckets without too much fitting (thankyou cathead).
  11. thanks a lot for the advice as i was aware of discrepancies but didn't realize the impact it would have when i got to plank assembly. Any other bits of wisdom?

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.
