  1. Hi just a small update , the knee parts and keel ar done ,one last thing that needs to be done is tapering the knee of the head. Below is a dry fit of the bulkheads except frame nr. c Michael
  2. hello Antony Yes, that's also one of the things I've been worried about, so I'm looking at this table Michael
  3. Mark A master, no just lucky Christian no but I have access to one where I only pay for the materials I cut , plus 10 $ per hour My building board is finished and the same are the 8 angle braces next one on the list is to cut some wood on my new table saw Michael
  4. Hi All just a little update , before i start the model i have decided to make a build table it is made of 18mm beech ply 700mm wide 2000mm long (sorry for the bad picture) All the bulkheads ( 32 ) and the 9 pieces that make up the stem I post some picture in a few days. out of the 32 bulkheads I only mess up one Michael
  5. Nils no , on a shelf in my living room Druxey yes she is, I'm almost afraid to think about how much she will weigh when she's done Michael
  6. Hi All Now after 6 weeks of high sunshine, where time has been spent outdoors, it now time for a little update.The first picture shows my work table without any mess, it will probably be the last time it will happen. picture 2 and 3 show The three section bulkhead shapes and 13 out of the 32 bulkheads and last but not least some of the wood I received from Jason from Crown Timberyard last week. It's only when you stand with the part between your hands you get an idea how big this model will be , the ruler is 100 cm long and the 2 bulkheads in the middle are 41 cm wide. Michael

  8. Hi Druxey Yes, you're right, I've looked up drawings back from 1705 until 1820 and they all show the same thing, like this one from 1728 Michael
  9. Hello Siggi I have found this drawing in the Danish archive. It's a plan of a Danish 90-gun ship of the line from 1766, I have 3-4 drawings more that show the same Michael

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.
