  1. Nice work, I’m doing a lot of smaller items for my Pegasus, my question is were the side mounts one piece or several sandwiched bits of timber? if one piece why the step design. i too had lots of trouble blackening my small barrels, yours looks good.
  2. Been off this for a good while. Coppering completed ones side, installed a moulding to top off the top edges. not happy overall, wish I’d gone for a white paint finish, ah well. Hope the other half comes out better and can display that side.
  3. For those who can't fabricate jigs you can purchase photoetch benders
  4. Definitely not wide as the strips sit right on the photoetch high points I looked a Blue Ensigns build, if you look at page 2 mine looked like his with the top red border not parallel, so I measured from the plans and added a splice to make it 4mm as per the drwg and as his page 3. I have checked that all the windows side and rear fit as per his build.
  5. Anyone else had to build up the rear gunwales to match the drawing re fitment of the etched decoration and the 1mm strip or perhaps it an error I've built in.
  6. Some colour added, coat of sand sealer to deepen the colour, will finish with a Matt varnish at the end.
  7. Slow progress, not happy with the small ports but I simply couldn't get a sharp outline.
  8. Measured and estimated, drawings could detail this feature much better, time will tell.
  9. Second planking done with a bit of sanding and sealer, final finis if any planking not painted will be matt
  10. Yeah, I'm going to try two eye pins , some tube and epoxy, will be the last things fitted after rigging so a long way off.

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.
