  1. Hi! Following your build with great interest, and I like your choice of woods. Did you use glue for the reinforcements? Niklas
  2. Hi Mike! Been following your display case build and I am very impressed! Now looking forward for some Cromwell! Niklas
  3. Hi Finally found some building time on my Rochefort. I made a promise to myself to do all the frames before summer ends and have only two left (not including the scary ones at bow and stern…) After that there will a lot of faring to do. Here’s some quick pics where I am right now. Niklas
  4. Ken, have followed your build all summer. Very impressed!
  5. It all looks very good! I'm also impressed by the building speed, and still so accurate! Niklas
  6. Tony, all four are interesting projects. I`m enjoying the Rochefort even if it´s a little more than I can handle, still I understand that Naiad is tempting. If I had the skill I'd might go for that one, but it's your choice. Don't know if this helps: I use my small scanner when I need copies for frames etc, but took the original plans to a professional copy place that printed out unfolded copies. Perhaps not super accurate but I can live with it. Your way of doing it is of course the best way to get it as perfect as possible. Niklas
  7. Thanks Per! Will keep some nail-polish remover close to my work shop! Niklas
  8. Hi! Slow work but have finally found a way to build the frames. I've seen others doing the lower parts first and it makes sense. Here's some first results:
  9. Hi Per. Just catching up. This is an interesting build, I really like this kind of boat! But I would probably have given up after that earlier mistake...btw: How did you unglue the wood? Niklas
  10. Yes, a very nice work place (hopefully the printer don't mind some dust...) I will follow this build with interest!! Niklas
  11. Thanks! And now: just another day in the sawmill.
  12. First frame done. It needs sanding I but will save that for later.

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.
