  1. All of the forecastle beams are in place. The hanging knees and lodging knees are installed. Any suggestions are appreciated. pictures are included.
  2. I have done some work on the forecastle area. I have the beams in place and also the jeer bitts. I am in the process of the installing the lodging and hanging knees.
  3. Juergen, I had forgotten about your single frame build. Great looking work. I can hardly wait to see your frames. Randy
  4. I really appreciate the nice comments. I really enjoy the time that spend on the Triton and following the Triton forum. Daniel, the paint I used on the Triton is badger brand GMO red. It is an acryilac paint.
  5. It has been over a year since i have posted on my build. I will post some pictures of the current state of my build. Work has kept me very busy. I am working on the forecastle area of the Triton since that seems to me to be the easier than then the stern with all of quarter galliries and stern windows. I will add some pictures that show the hawse holes, quarterdeck timbers and catheads.
  6. Daniel, The beams for the Triton will be a lot easier than beams and pillars for the house. Enjoy the holidays and the children. Randy
  7. Daniel, A good looking scarf. When you start placing the frames you might want to just place the aft frames and fore frames on the keel first. Leave the middle frames out so you can fair the frames with all the taper. It made life easier for me. Randy
  8. In the next few days I will get some pictutres posted of where I am at now. I lost a hard drive about six months ago and so also lost all of the pictures of my build. I have the gun deck beams, knees, carlings and ledges in. Also some deck planking and furniture. Right now I am planking the inner bulwarks. Lets get this triton thread active. Randy

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.
