  1. Hi Spyglass.. Yea making that hole is a bit of a nuisance, but if you are adding the Copper Plating later you shouldn’t have too many issues as long as u have it smooth when patched.. i think we have all had the profanity moments too 😃 All The Best Mate Eamonn
  2. Hi J .. Little late to the game here but I've often felt we as builders do tend to slightly 'over scale' items .. but in this case the larger does indeed look like a better fit .. Boat looks superb too Mate ... Eamonn
  3. Hi Dirk .. Here's a couple more if you need them.. Vessel Name is Ballahoo.. Please feel free to post to our Facebook Page with the necessary Watermark etc. All The Best Eamonn
  4. News Flash ...... Oooh the excitement I hear you say .. 😃 I recently did some research re anchor scale for vessels of the Ballahoo size with respect to the kit provided one (I always felt there was something off about it) .. the Shank and Arms are pretty near perfect but the Stock (Provided) is indeed over scale and will need to be sanded back fairly heavily or re-fashioned..

  5. Ballahoo as she currently stands ... Full build log link is in the Signature 'Doodah' below Cheers Folks Eamonn
  6. All Righty Then .. Photo Time ... This is Ballahoo as she currently stands... Everything in the photo is secured in its final position, masts are removed as they were only dry fitted . Thanks For Stopping By Folks .. All The Very Best from 'The Speedy Boatyard' formally known as 'Snails Pace Yard' Eamonn
  7. Hi Again Folks .. Well The Ballier is back in the house along with my tools and I have the rigging plans pretty much drawn up .. all I need now is the actual space to do something .. (there is a nice big kitchen table with Balliers name on it lol I will take a photo shortly and post it.. All The Very Best The 'Speedy' Boat Yard Eamonn
  8. Hey There D .. How did I miss this one ! .. Love following your small craft builds, and this one is lining up to be another beauty .. Oh and am digging all the 'Charts n' Graphs' All The Very Best Eamonn BTW Can't wait to see what you do with the Emma C. that you have on your shelf ..
  9. Hi All .. Sorry about the delay in getting back to 'The Ballier' ..Alas she is still in storage as I don't have anywhere to set up as yet , I plan to take her out of storage shortly and see if I cant find some solution that won't get tooo much in the way (I really don't want to have to totally clear the work area up every time I finish, then set it all back up again shortly after, would much rather set up and be able to leave it 'as is' till next time if you follow) Have to say though .. I have the 'Buzz' back and can't wait to kick off again .. All The Very Best Folks Eamonn @ Unfeasibly Slow Ship Yards Inc. Edited later for Grammar lol
  10. Glad to hear u got sorted Mate .. I can relate to the house work .. am only just settling back into my own here... Ballahoo is in storage till a suitable temporary set-up appears (attic conversion set for mid late next year) Am looking forward to seeing Hood back in the MSW updates .. No Pressure LOL All The Very Best Mate Eamonn

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.
