  1. Another update today ! I glued the bulkheads into their associated slots in the main keel. And I started the planking (Not so easy to plank the stern grrr). PS: Thank you for the encouragement S.Coleman !
  2. Hello Thanasis, Thank fo your comment and encouragement. Yes the box contains a little history of the ship: "The ship was built by Mac. Intyre Paisley-Huston and Cardett shipyard, Glasgow, Britain, as a passanger and cargo ship. The ship’s first owner Dussey and Robinson Company named it as “Torocaderto” and used for 5 years. In 1883, the ship was sold to H.Psicha Preus, Greece. Then, it’s name was changed to “Kymi”. In 1890, the last owner sold it to another Greek company which was Cap. Andereadis. The ship sunk at 1891 and was brought up in the same year. It was sold to Istanbul Rama Derasimo and recorded to Istanbul port. In 1894 she started to work for Ottoman Maritime administration. Her name was changed to “Panderma” (Bandırma) and served as a post ship at Marmara sea. The Ship completed a historical mission. On 1919, 19.May, The Founder of Modern Turkey Republic Mustafa Kemal ATATURK arrived at Samsun from İstanbul by this ship and started the Turkish Independance War against the occupiers. The ship was taken to pieces at 1925 at Golden Horn." There is also a wikipedia page about this steamer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Band%C4%B1rma Regarding the history of Turkey, it seems that the country was occupied and partitioned following the Ottoman Empire's defeat in World War I (1918) between France, Greece, Armenia, Great Britain and Italy. Five years later, Mustafa Kemal obtained the revocation of this partition: the independance of Turkey. But in my case, I'm more attracted by the lines of the ship than its history. Regards,
  3. Hi Everyone, "Panderma Ferry" will be my second build log after the WONDERFUL Lady Nelson. It is an historical passanger and cargo ship used by Mustafa Kemal ATATURK during the Turkish Independance War. More details: * Scale : 1/87 * Length : 620 mm Here are pictures of the box (I'm not a fan of the cover ): Because I previously built an Amati's model, I'm surprised about the quality of plans: they are not in scale (see the planking instructions). Well, building the "Bandirma" (turkish name of the ship) in these conditions will be a challenge
  4. Thank you Antony. I like the ship without any display case. Maybe I would regret it if my son break it with his foam pirate sword. Thank you Sailor1234567890 and John: congratulations accepted Thank you Eamonn. I will start a new build log soon
  5. You're right. I was satisfied only 10 minutes . After that I opened the box of my next project. Regards Bibounde
  6. So here we are ! I have to change my signature: Current Build Completed build : Lady Nelson. Finally I put the last 2 booms and placed the ship on the pedestal (I drilled 4mm holes at the bottom of the keel in order to place the screws). Because the ship building duration took 3 years, I had to wash the pedestals with a "Pierre Blanche" (it's a french solution, but I don't know how to say it in english). Here are the pictures of the Lady Nelson. See you in another build log mates
  7. In my Lady Nelson, I don't particularly like cannon barels and culverins which are plastic. Also iron anchors and pumps look fake. Hope to see more update of your Ballahoo. Regards, Bibounde
  8. Hi, Great job. Your deck is beautiful. It seems that fittings are more accurate in your model than my Lady Nelson (same scale however). Or it's the talent of the artist. I have a question: what kind of tools did you use in order to trim masts, yards, and booms: sanding paper and elbow grease ? Regards
  9. Another mini-update. I placed the upper yard and started the creation of the main boom. Here is a photo of my shipyard Regards
  10. Hello Eamonn, Thx for the like. Yes I believe that I will start the ferry
  11. Hello everyone, As usual, I made a big break (lot of work, new baby room preparation, and other stuffs). Last days I focused on "masting" and rigging. Mouse OK Main and middle yards OK Rudder OK "The end is coming" ! Even if I did not finish the Lady Nelson yet, I have already looking at my next project: I'm trying to decide between the "Panderma Ferry from Turkmodel" (which I already booked and received) and the "Hermione from Artesania Latina".
  12. Thanks Eamonn. Thanks to you I found these topics: http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/7369-weaving-jig-for-a-mouse/ http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/509-hms-snake-by-beef-wellington-caldercraft-scale-1-64-first-wooden-ship-build/page-34#entry144891 (much easier for me - no tools needed -) I'm french and a newbie, so sometimes I'm lack of vocabulary Regards
  13. Hi, I'm creating the rigging threads (especially the shrouds), and I have a question: how to successfully complete this knots ? Regards
  14. Hello, Because it's my first build, I didn't pay attention. But I can fully guarantee that painting the gun barrel wheels was a challenge Regards
  15. Hi Phil, Thx for the comment. Guns are made entirely of plastic. Regards

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.
