  1. Chris, I am not shure if I understand your problem right. I had saturday the opportunity to make a short trip with the replica "Kamper Kogge" and that is what the shrouds are looking on the real ship. So don't worry if they are not really parallel.😉
  2. This looks so beautyful, Kris. Please check the position of the frame. If it is the position of the middel frame near by the mast, it has a slightly different design. Before drawing the frames I would add the clamps on the planks to bind the frames. Than I woud add the mastspoor. The frames are not sitting perpendicular to the keel. I could not see, if you remember this small detail. I don't know if you answered the question: which software do you use for the drawings?
  3. @KrisWood Yes that's exactly what I mean. I've stopped my project, because the bulkheads didn't work for me.
  4. I would buil the jig much higher, that you can build the complete keel and stem for putting it on the jig. Perhaps a design as for a paper model with a horizontal board is a good idea. This is a picture of my jig I tried to build the Skuldelev ship III. My biggest mistake, was to use a stepped design for the jig. It's much easier to mark the position of every plank, than you dont't have truble with the small inaccuracies during the build.
  5. If I follow my research for HMS Triton, you're absolut right. After frame 7 you need two sizes, but the middle is much more complicated. For a simplification I should use 12'' for the floor timbers and first futtoks and 10.5'' for every other timbers.
  6. Hi Chuck, I couldn't find any example for the the frameing you show for the Winnie section for a ship of this size and period. I think it is better you use the classic English pattern with double and single frames. Perhaps you can make the lower and first futtoks a little bit thicker than the other futtocks and top timbers.
  7. Chris, congratulations for reaching this milestone. I started yesterday with page one of the instructionbook. This anchor is looking really modern. Did you some research? If I am back at home I can check if I find something in my books.
  8. Really nice progress Chris. What glue do you use ? In the instruction manual Shipyard shows a contact glue (Pattex) and I was really surprised to see this. I am thinking to use Titebond woodglue. If the the weather is so worse as expected, I will start the build of my model today.
  9. Gary, can you send me please a link to the figures? Do you know, if they have these also in other scales?
  10. I speak German, but I couldn't read the text. I think that this are an old dialect and letters.
  11. The stern castle of the "Kogge von Kampen" is based on a shipwreck which was found in Kamen Netherlands. It's showing an older type of a stern castle. I am quite shure, that the rest of the kit is based on "Kogge von Bremen" The cog "Wütender Hund" shows in my opinion the classic cog also with a stem castle. It's a generic cog model. Most historical pictures are showing the stem castle. There is always a discussion, of the Bremen cog was finished before they got lost, because she don't has this.

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.
