  1. Hi Again TLS .. Welcome back and I hope the Wee Hollier went well.. Great start as Edward (above) says.. If you are worried about getting the right amount of beveling/sanding on the Bulkheads, lay a test strip of planking along them and you should see where it meets the individual bulkheads (probably only hits them at the corners near the bow) you can then judge how much to bevel to let the test plank sit flush/or more naturally from Bulkhead to Bulkhead, re-test as you go along (moving the test plank down the bulkheads towards the keel) You are probably already doing this, so forgive me for mentioning it πŸ™ƒ All The Best Mate Eamonn
  2. Cheers for the Heads-Up .. I'll go hunt you down 😎 πŸ˜‰ and pull up a chair for the latest Sherbourne Show .. She is on my shelves also (I do love these smaller ships) Enjoy the Hollier Eamonn
  3. Brilliant Stuff TLS .. She Looks A Treat ! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us next, don't forget to post a notification here so we can all follow along from the Get-Go.. Hoping to have my own Ballier out of its Storage Box shortly, the build room / office is progressing nicely 😁 All The very Best Eamonn P.S. Thank you for the amazing compliment btw .. I only hope I haven't forgotten what I learned along the way.

  5. I still love your close up work .. what a build ! re last photo hmmm Cogs n' Bars n' Stuff .. interesting... part of a rope making kit I wonder, or something else ..... We wait to find out ☺️ All The Very Best Mate Eamonn
  6. Hey There TLS .. I'll probably have to re learn everything before I kick-off , I have some notes someplace .. Oh wait they're in storage too .. Ahhhhhhhgh πŸ™„ .. Soooo I'll most likely be following your lead πŸ˜‰ Don't forget that Rudder !! Thanks for dropping by Eamonn

  9. Coming along nicely ... Loving the deck colour btw.. (Don't forget the Rudder ☺️ wee bit of maneuvering to install it and u may need to turn the boat upside down, so watch those deck fittings etc) All The Best Eamonn PS I should be returning to my own build soon enough, work on my attic conversion is going nicely !
  10. Hey There Andy .. Great to see your New Build Log .. Am looking forward to more updates .. Is it weird that I feel hungry after reading it ? All The Best Eamonn
  11. Hi Neil .. I have only just spotted this Build Log .. Nice start BTW .. Just worry about getting a good 'First Layer' of planking done, give it a good sanding (with fillers in any gaps if needed) then you can really get to grips with the Outer Layer, and if you are fully painting the entire hull (unlike mine where 'Bare' timber is showing topside) you need not be too pedantic on how it looks, as long as it is smooth and even that is All the Best Eamonn
  12. Lol ... it kinda slipped in there a few months ago .. and Yup Paaaaarty .. brilliant day and night πŸ€ͺ

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 β€œAdvance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.ο»Ώο»Ώ

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.
