  1. Some time ago, I noticed that the front of the ship didn't fit properly. I decided to rebuild it a bit. See below pictures. The red arrows show that that part is a bit too low.
  2. Thanks Mugje. Nice to see you following this build!
  3. instead of using this piece, I decided to scratch a bit.
  4. Now picking up the front...
  5. Just checking her teeth.. 🙂
  6. Hi, In addition, this is a link where you can see the Batavia and walk in 3D on the decks of the Batavia, just like in Google Streetview. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=8MMqvWkQQe8 Alex
  7. Thanks Scott, I've used furniture wax (dark oak) for the hull. I also used it for the Half Moon, and there I made it shiny. This time I didn't polish it, which gives it a weathered look indeed. I didn't put all the nails yet, still working on that. I'll double check the cannons... althouth I think I took it into accout 7 years ago when building the hull. Alex
  8. I found somee time to build yesterday evening.
  9. Beautiful ship. I’ll check your log and hope to learn! Alex
  10. Hi Jan, Yes, I recently got that book including the building plans. I think I will (try to) do the gallion according to those plans. So there is some scratch work to be done as well. Alex
  11. and since I started again 2 months ago: I tried to carve the lion from scratch... Found out it's missing some claws. But I'll add those a bit later.

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.
