  1. I had been a little intimidated by the cannons, I was unsure if I would be able to produce two similar cannons (still a newbie with the lathe). I turned them on my Sherline lathe out of brass and I'm pretty happy with how they came out. I also used the lathe to turn the Carriage Wheels with the grain running along the length of the wheel. The wheels took a couple of tries, I broke a few. Still need to blacken the cannon and add a few more parts to the carriage. Tony
  2. Been really slow going, but finally got around to adding these pictures. Finished the exterior planking and interior.
  3. Completed the Gun Deck Planking today. I also built and added in the stairs. Thanks for all the likes, Tony
  4. Finally got around to getting some work done on the cross section. I have completed the gun deck and added the hatch coamings. I spent most of this morning on the lathe making tiny sheaves for the bits from brass. Tony
  5. Thanks Pete38, Small update, took a little beak from the deck to start the Sheet bitts. They are made from bloodwood. I decided to make them from multiple pieces in layers like plywood. Sorry, the pictures are in the wrong order. Thanks, Tony
  6. Thanks for the comment Bob, means a lot coming from a talented builder like yourself. I have fitted and glued all the major deck components and dry fitted it into the hull. This deck is coming along much nicer than the lower deck. I am more happy with my joint work this time around. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what would be on the lower deck in this section of the ship, cable tier? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Tony

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.
