  2. Thanks John, I want to do more but health is in the way 😟 But i will get there..... Sjors
  3. There is a lot of dust on my chair Caroline.... You can not find the time to clean it a little for me? 😝 ok, i’ll do it by myself then..... Nice to see you back in the world of building! Sjors
  4. Thanks Caroline 🙂 long time no see. Everything allright with you? I build something else for a while before i go back to the shrouds and ratlines Also thanks for the likes! Sjors
  5. Done something more...... It looks dusty and it is dusty. When everything is on it I will re-paint everything again. I believe it's more painting then building! But ok, it will do. I have make the rubbing strikes.....towing support en an other few things that you don't see....... Sjors
  6. And that’s another beauty Bob! Again an great job. I will be waiting for the next one. Sjors
  7. Thank you all. I place the truster housing..... That thing that goes around the propellors 🙂 The propellors are dry fit so when I have placed the rudders ,maybe I can start with the paint job....or not. We will see! Sjors
  8. Thanks Piet and OC. Also thanks for the likes. The trusters don’t want to do it the easy way so i’m busy to make them in one line. One of the propellors is touching the case...... Then a question. The propellors,what kind of colour do i give them. Gold? Copper? Black? Maybe Andy (realworkingsailor) knows it? Sjors
  9. After almost 2 weeks of sanding, filling, primer, sanding, filling, primer ,sanding, filling and primer I think I have to quit sanding otherwise there will be no more wood left to sand............. There are a few little imperfections but that's for later when I will put hee real paint on it. I think it's gonna be 3 layers so.... But there are a lot of things to do before I can paint her. Time enough to do. And of course the pictures..... Sjors
  10. Hoi Anna, You can use a sandingmachine called mouse. They have it also by the Gamma. It’s quick and easy... Sjors
  11. The bow section is also done. The blocks are glues and shaped. Now a little stern and primer time. But that will be for next week I think. Picture time. Sjors
  12. Hi John, I don't know if I'm crickey....😶 And it looks if I have done a lot but don't forget that I had 3 big sheets of wood what covers the hull. So there was not a lot of planking to do anymore....just enough ! Maybe strange question but what do you mean by bee's knees? Never hear of it . Maybe you can use the Dutch langue to translate ??? 😛 Sjors

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.
