  1. Looking really good Steve. I do as Chuck suggested and haven't had any issues gluing.
  2. Thanks Chuck and Ben. Chugging along slow and steady and loving it! Also thanks for all the likes too.
  3. The anchor lining has been added to the port and starboard sides. Next I'll resume the hull planking.
  4. Yes I saw the issue popping up and I’ll be checking mine also. I’m sure some sort of “adjustment” will be needed. I’ll let you know. Thanks
  5. I've returned to the second planking layer of the wales now. The first four strakes are 3/64" x 7/32" and will be painted black. The fifth strake is the black strake will be added after the wales are finished being painted and will be left natural in color. As the wales and black strake are supposed to taper to almost nothing at the stem. This is to make them look like they fit into the rabbet. I pre sanded them down to 1/64" before gluing them in place. This helped me smooth them down without having to take as much off and risk damaging the stem. Here she is in all her dirty glory. The starboard side is unpainted and the port side with a first coat of paint. I am using Admiralty Paints "Matt (Metal) Black" Many coats of paint to go and then I'll add the black strake.
  6. Yes JJ those planks are time consuming but it looks like your plank is spot on.
  7. Yes Bob I use Zap a Gap CA. Thanks ASAT. This is the first hull I've done in pear and so far so good!

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.
