  1. One possibilty is a stretching of the paper if you glue it on the timber. In my opinion it's not a problem to send over the line. Let enough wood at the side of the frame that you can check the shape later.
  2. This are good news. I like to watch your progress. I hope that I can start et the end of the year with my version of tis beautiful little frigate.
  3. Can you make some pictures of the colored stand by daylight? What I see looks really nice. I know, that the wrong place for a discussion, but is the basis -the old Heller kit- a good base for all the work and research you invest? Isn't it easier, if you like to work with Styrene, to do it from scratch with Evergreen-Profiles? I got this question every time I look in your buildlog in my mind.
  4. Really nice start. You choose the same method I like to us for my own build. How did you made the notches? With the table saw?
  5. Hi all, first of all I like to thank Chuck and all the other guys in the background which make the group build possible. I will participate and build this nice 5ft rate frigate, because the reconstruction of my HMS Triton will need much more time and I have lerned in the last years that it don't make sense to build her or any other ship as POF model before I am retired. So I think it is a good possibility to take the challenge of building HMS Winchelsea and improve my skills. In the moment I like to build her fully rigged and colored as the original model. As wood I will use pear, boxwood and other European woods. For job reasons I live partially in the Netherlands, but I will build her at home in Germany. So I am not the fastest builder of the group.

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.
