  1. Hi AMALIO, very good and beautiful work. Karl
  2. PART 6 Hawse Timbers installed, frame scaffold ground inside. Karl
  3. HAWSE TIMBERS / CANT FRAMES after several attempst I was able to produce and install the Cant Frames. Karl
  4. Hi Kudin. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do not believe it. Very good work. Karl
  5. Complete new building , after a mistake on my part in the construction of the frames. Many thanks to Mike for the correction of the frames, without him I would not have been able to make the intended open frame. Next, I will start with the bug, (Hawse Timbers) and straighten and grind the previus part. Karl
  6. ROYAL CAROLINE 1749 I have succeeded in acquiring the original Italian, barely available, rare edition of the book, with all 15 plan drawings. Compared to the book by AotS, it has the advantage that all drawings are shown in large format on a scale of 1:48. Unfortunately, my previos frame construction was built without the required thickness for the chamfers of the individual frames. Consequently, these were too thin after straightening / grinding. The result is garbage, and complete new construction. Karl
  7. Update The assembly of the first frames on the keel. I make the assembly of the double frames on a glass plate above the plan drawing. Advantage, after drying the adhesive, the frame can be easily detached from the glass plate. Straken and grind I'll do later. Karl Part 2
  8. Hello Model Friends. After much research and more considerations, I decided to build the model of the "ROYAL CAROLINE 1749". The history of the Royal Caroline has been written x times, so I'll give up on more details. After the sparse construction drawings, as well as various to scale without drawings in the book by AotS I have strong doubts about the success of the project, but I try it anyway. The plan drawings by Boudriot, Delacroix from ANCRE publishing house, on the other hand, are top class in their own right, i very first cream. Thanks Mike for the help of the frame drawings. To the model: Scale: 1/48 Wood: German Elsbeere Overall lenght: 655,0 mm I will build the model with visible frames from the second barwood, as well as the interior. I have already installed the "backbone" of the model on/in the slipway building board. There are no photos of the individual parts, smoothly forgotten. Next step is the construction of forty-five douple frames, each frame consists of twelve parts, so I am busy in the near future. Karl (Sorry, Google translator)
  9. Hello Doris, a beautiful work, very good photos and presentation. Absolutely stunning. greetings Karl

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.
