  1. Thank you guys for the nice comments and all likes😉. I continue with a pump well.
  2. 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.
  3. Thank you guys, little progress. Now I am ready to start the wotk inside the hull.
  4. Hi druxey, all woods will darken after waxing, but there will still be a visible color difference between white, black and brown wood. Deck beams are completed, it remains only the last aft one and the deck level breast hook.
  5. Thank you Johann, I have to say that you have no reason to learn from me becouse your work on La Créole is fantastic. I use "white" hornbeam and the "black" hornbeam for the bolts. Black wood simulates iron bolts and white wood the treenails.
  6. Thanks Johann😊. Planking is finally done. Now I am going to glue about 6500 pcs of "bolts".
  7. 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.
  8. First five strakes are in place, now only the remaining twenty.
  9. Installation of wales which are made from "black" hornbeam.

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.
