  1. It does look like it was mainly along the bottom row of ports where the lids have the same stepped thickness as the Whale, what you could do is to make the lids then create the different parts that are thicker and keep testing/shaping until they match the profile of the whale. OC.
  2. Evenng all, more work on the foremast - I completed the futtock shrouds, then started work on the upper mast shrouds - so far two completed on the one side. OC.
  3. Right then folks - I have finished the ratlines on the lower foremast shrouds "Phewwwwww OC.
  4. Still has a bit of a way to go yet till I get her completely flat - its seems to be taking several coats, yet still some of the areas are still what I would call a satin finish. OC.
  5. Evening all, I have completed attaching the two topgallant post tention ropes, down on to the two deadeyes - this means the foremast/bowsprit is now fully tentioned to each other, while I was in the mood I decided to give the whole ship several clear matt coats, to flatten everything down as the paintwork still had a bit of a sheen to her. Just the one (poor) photo. OC.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
