  1. Hi Law, and thanks! We are working on our house, and have been all summer, so I had no time for modelbuilding. Hopefully I will get back on it later on. Cheers /Matti
  2. Hey Law, glad to see you visit! I don't have time for this build at the moment, so she is sitting on my shelf. Still have a decire to build her so I'm sur eI'll get back to her later on. /Matti
  3. Hey mate, sorry for missing your reply! Have a lot to do atm so the model is sitting on my shelf waiting for the next step. /Matti
  4. Thanks Mark! That's one of my reasons for using the spare parts and leftovers from the last build as much as possible. The freedom to try anything and just have fun. Getting the lines correct is my challenge right now. /Matti
  5. Thanks! I'm happy you want to follow along. Lots of new stuff for me, so I can't promise I'll succeed. /Matti
  6. Hey all! I've been trying to work out the lines. To be able to continue with the other decks, I needed to plank the first one. As I'm building it by eye, I need to see the other decks in place before preparing for a mast and gratings. A bit backward. Also started on the stern shape. /Matti
  7. Yeah, I've noticed. I've tried to shape my model to make it more narrow, but it's quite hard for me to get nice lines, I may end up with a stern that is to wide, but some reference show slightly wider versions also. Thanks for the picture and advice! /Matti
  8. Very nice progress pops! I normally don't think of boats like these, but I really like to look at your build and can definately see why you decided to do it! /Matti
  9. The model looks wonderful Mark! I would have serious problem adding planks as it looks so good as it is. A true work of art! /Matti
  10. As a fan of your work, it's been a pleasure to read through this thread. Gorgeous work Jan! Would it be hard to weather a model built like this? My experience is thats its easier to weather a wooden ship model compaired to say a model in plastic. For me it comes down to do light sanding to make the coats of paints blend and also let the wood show here and there. I guess that would not work well on your material? /Matti
  11. Thanks for the kind comments guys, and thanks for the likes also! Jan, the scale is very close to 1/70. /Matti
  12. Thanks Marc! No, but a couple of them where boatsmen. Dutch history is very interesting. /Matti
  13. Thanks alot for the kind words everyone! /Matti
  14. Hey pops! Very nice progress! Making a weathered paintjob on this model could be very very fun! /Matti

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.
