  1. The spare anchor is in place, I did all the other anchors during one work. Now I take a break "from the wood" and start making the ropes.
  2. The remaining deck beams have been added, a spare anchor remains to be added and the interior of the hold will be complete.
  3. Hi Derek, thanks for reply. Information at the beginning of the log I meant that there is no fixed orlop deck. At first I thought I wouldn't install this removable orlop deck at all, but later I changed my decision. I added the barrels to the water hold and covered the whole with the remaining deck beams.
  4. Thank you James H😉. Next part was the orlop deck beams installation.
  5. I'm interest in your CNC Router and there are plenty of those on Amazone. So to get that frame contour I presume you needed a CAD software then transfer the data (Cartesian point) to another software or directly on the CNC Router. Could expand a little bit more. Would greatly appreciated.


    Robert (Jauber). 

    By the way, your work is tremendous. Wish I could achieve that level of skill.

      Hi Robert,

      for the CNC router work you need three diferent software. First one is CAD software (I´m using TurboCad). The second one is Cut2D (transfer to this software is made through dxf files from TurboCad). This software prepare data for milling that uses the third software - MACH3. MACH3 software controls directly CNC router.

      Thank you very much for the clarification. I already have a CAD (AutoCAD and Via CAD) and Mach 3 could be bought with the CNC Router. But how about Cut2D software, which one you use… Desktop or Pro?

      In another life I use to program CNC machine but everything was under the same platform (CADAM then merge to CATIA) They make our life very easy. Get the Engineering drawing, select contour, choose which machine, select tooling from a bank and direct to the post to validate the NC program then send to the DNC.

      I really enjoy following your work and progress. There is so much to learn from all of you guys.

      Best regards


  6. Thank you guys, especially praise from admin pleases 😉. Preparation of riding bitts.
  7. Thank you Johann😉. Making of "wedges" for main mast mounting.
  8. Thank you guys for the nice comments and all likes😉. I continue with a pump well.
  9. Thank you guys for all your likes😉. To hdrinker: CNC milling maschine was used mainly for cutting of frames. But the beveling had to be done manually. Beveling of hawse timbers was somewhat more complicated. Aft, all the bulkheads are now completed.

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.
