  1. On a side note I was given a Artesania Latina kit of the HMB Endeavour which had been started but sadly the builder past away while it was still under construction. It sat for 15 years waiting to be completed. The first planking had been finished but I needed to redo some of it as really needed redoing. I have already built this ship but it will nice to work it along side the Washington as a change of pace. Some of the kit has gone missing so I'll probably be creative with it and build it as I like. Thanks for stopping in. Bye for now, Dan
  2. Finished....... the deck framing. Better than a jigsaw puzzle.
  3. More progress pictures. The stove was constructed of balsa. The stove floor is a mixture of white glue, coloring and saw dust. I some point I realized I had forgotten to put in a door on the well house so I had to came up with a solution. Cheers all...
  4. Hi Guy, yes this is a interesting ship to build, simplish yet complex.
  5. A little more progress. I had pretty much decided not to tree nail below decks and save it for the upper decks. The parts anyone will actually see. At this point nothing is fixed as I may still change my mind. The deck is holly.
  6. Some more progress. My bending technology is being put to the test. Bending sideways is a challenge but I found if I soak the piece in hot water,then press it into a form of the shape and hit it with the heat gun I can get pretty close to what I need. So here's where we are now. The thick and thin boards are in and so are the crutches. Made a modification to correct an error but I think we are good. Cheers Mates.
  7. Thanks for the nice Mike and all the likes.. This is definitely stretching my skill level. Having to get creative along the way.
  8. Found some time over the Holidays for ship building. Dremel bit in the drill press serves as a poor man's milling machine.
  9. Well things are rolling along some days it's two steps forward and one back. Found I had a bit of a twist near the bow managed to work most of it out. The front Canti ribs are one rib and not doubled up so had to redo those. The bow filler pieces were a hand full and I think I made three stern tops # 8. Sadly I forgot to reduce the size of some of the pics I took here are a few that made it. Merry Christmas to all.

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.
