  1. To Michel Bérnard: the yellow band is standard masking tape (Revell or Tamiya) - see the picture. Next ten strakes is done, it remains last 10 strakes.
  2. First five strakes are in place, now only the remaining twenty.
  3. Installation of wales which are made from "black" hornbeam.
  4. Thank you guys😉. I added some parts inside the hull - limber strake, sleepers and breast hooks. Now is the right time for wales installation.
  5. Riders - these parts was made in the same way as the frames.
  6. Thank you guys, your words pleased me😉. The ceiling is finally done. I will continue with riders and mast steps.
  7. I started work on ceiling, it will be a long and slow work 😟.
  8. Thank you guys for the kind words😉. Rest of filling frames is added (with the door opening). Because I managed to break one of the counter timbers, I ruther stuck immediately the window battens.
  9. Thank you druxey. I am very happy every time I finish a complicated piece. But then comes another one, no less complicated. And so on. For example next pieces - outer counter timbers.
  10. Thank you Johann😊. Production of counter timbers.
  11. I made a small but rather complicated part - part 10 from the plate 8, an extension of the building bord for installation of counter timbers.
  12. Hi Dowmer, deck clamps are made from pear wood. I use the old bender (first picture) for wood bending. Not the shaped end, but the heating tube to which I place a water-soaked cloth. Steam from the water heats the wood and makes the bending easier. The deck clamps are attached to the hull. Now I am going to finish the stern.

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.
