  1. Hi Pete. For me it's always very interesting following the origination process of a modern sailing boat. To quote our colleague Wacko Wolf: Keep the pictures coming.
  2. Hi Mark, i am just following the instructions. On the other hand the second planking hides the use of filler...
  3. Thanks Nils. The boats are part of the kit and looking very much better than the plastic boats supplied with some kits.
  4. A minor update on the pinnace. After sanding and filling the boat is now prepared for the second planking. Here and there the planking may be thin like a human hair.
  5. Thank you very much for the nice comments. Only a small update on the ship‘s boats for today. The boats are not finished yet. So here we have the longboat: The cutter: And at last the two boats together:
  6. Hi Brian. I think, you did a very nice job. The hull looks great and also the deck furniture is well executed. You don't have to hide your model later!
  7. Well, the long break is over now and I‘m glad you are still interested. I think, this build log deals with the brig Mercury... So thank you very much for your kind comments, Pete, Jeff, Henry, Robert, B.E. and Nils. Believe me, you can‘t measure enough! And here you see the mistake I made last year: The gunports are completely on the wrong position. Note: Never trust a gunport pattern, read the plan instead! But I think, I can correct this problem quite easy. Anyway, back into the drawer with the hull for the next days. The ship‘s boats are next: This may take a few weeks... but I‘m confident.
  8. Glad, your upload problems are solved now. Really nice shot of a well executed model. Cheers, Richard
  9. Very nice model. If you have problems uploading more than two pictures you should ask a moderator for help.
  10. Hi Janet Everything looks neat and clean. Very nice work.
  11. Ken In my opinion it's not necessary because there is no laser burn left after tapering.
  12. Hi Tony To answer your question: I think, you get a better result when you taper the frames after glueing them into place.

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.
