  1. Hi Michael, moldings are made on CNC milling maschine. I am using VCarve software for this purpose. You have to create only curve (cross section) of molding and maschine does the work itself🙂. You can see in this example that my workmanship is not so superb as you noted🙂. Preparation of deck beams for forecastle and quarter deck.
  2. Planking completed, drilling holes for guns attaching.
  3. Thank you guys for all likes and very nice comments🙂. To archjofo: why that modesty, your work on La Creole is amazing. To JpR62: the moldings are done with milling maschine. I continue with planking the outer parts of the hull.
  4. To Druxey - thanks for informations, I discussed this situation with my friend who had the same problem. I cover these lead items with clear varnish and the whole hull is then preserved with the wax. I hope that it will be OK. To Alexandru - I am using the french Sajou thread for the ropes (https://sajou.fr/en/339-fil-au-chinois-gloving-thread-1000m-cones). Unfortunately this thread is only in one thicknesess. Completed ceiling.
  5. Thank you James H🙂. Forecastle and quaterdeck deck clamps, scuppers -made of lead foil.
  6. Spirketting and profiled decorative moulding rails.
  7. Various openings are cut into the framing - gun ports, windows and double sheaved fairleads.
  8. Some deck details - inner waterways, binding strake, carlings and ledges.
  9. To No Idea - I mostly use the two flute router bits (https://cnc-plus.de/en/End-Mills-266/2-Flute-281/Carbide-Two-Flute-Router-bits--2-Flute-End-Mills--CNC-Cutter-Bits-2983.html). Waterway.
  10. Thank you guys for all comments and likes. To No Idea: tilting base is specially designed and "home made" for existing Proxxon vice. To dvm27: I have visited Sherline web - this maschine is fantastic, I´ve never seen anything like it before. After about one week all ropes are finished, cca 190 ropes in 14 thickness. Lenght of one ropes is approximately 180 cm.
  11. 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.
  12. The remaining deck beams have been added, a spare anchor remains to be added and the interior of the hold will be complete.
  13. 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.

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.
