  1. Good morning all, Few advances on the model ... Here are just a few photos to show the current stage. See you later for the rest of the adventure. Patrick
  2. Hello Gentlemen, Thank you for your feedback. The Leds ramp is now definitely in place : The false deck is glued. Here is a lighting test. The brightness satisfies me : the goal is not to let it light up permanently but to be able to show the inside of the hold on occasion ... So let there be light : So much for this day. I enjoyed myself ... Patrick
  3. Hello Gentlemen ! It was a long time ago, wasn't it ! I had "lifted my feet" certainly but despite all the work continued ... A big piece for me: the false deck. I was not sure how to do it. Finally, I decided to do everything by hand : cutting the slats, adjusting them, sanding etc ... Some photos of the successive stages : A small patina, nails : I decided to make openings in different places where there is something to see. The upper decks will also be opened to show the structure ... To summarize : the wedge will be visible through the frames and on the opposite side we will see the structure in "plunging" mode. I make the openings : The false deck in place - not glued - to see what it gives : I also wanted a lighting system for the hold and the deck. I had not shown you these photos where I installed some micro-leds in the bilge to start : All this being practically invisible from above : I continue the lighting work with a whole ramp of leds, embedded in a slat, so that they are not visible when we look between the frames : That's it for the moment. The continuation next time ! I wish you a good day ! Patrick
  4. Hi Chad ! It was not easy to install these windows : it took me almost 3 years to get all the permissions and be able to bring a company for installation. Have a good day. Patrick
  5. Hello gentlemen, Small progression ... That's all for today ! See you later ... Patrick
  6. Good morning all ! The work continues slowly. I'm still in the hold, the walls are taking place little by little ... To follow in a few days ... Have a good day ! Patrick
  7. Hello gentlemen! The renovation work on the building is now complete. I retrieved my balcony and reinstalled the workshop. Everything is ready for the rest of the project "La Renommée". To follow.. Patrick
  8. Hello gentlemen ! Not a lot of activity for some time : my building is being cleaned, I have to release my balcony-workshop before. I take this opportunity to harmonize the color of workbenches and other storage furniture : This done, clear place for the renovation work : Here are the latest pictures of La Renommée before this forced move : The following in a few weeks, after reinstallation of the workshop ... Good day to you ! Patrick
  9. Hi Kudin! I love all your videos, beautiful work ! I have a question: regarding the front of the boat, you start it at the video N ° 23 then you do it again at the video N ° 31: why, not understanding your language, I do not have the answer ? Then you destroy it again to the video N ° 71 : to remake it in ebony, is that it ? Thank you. Patrick
  10. Superb and well done ! Congratulation and thanks for sharing ! Patrick
  11. Hello gentlemen and ... thank you ! Here is what I did for this part of the deck : See you later ! Patrick
  12. Hello gentlemen, The next step will be laying the deck in this area. I will use a template and this is what it should give : At first, the slats : To be continued ...
  13. Hello gentlemen ! Slight progress ... still at the bottom of the hold ! Have a good day ! Patrick

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.
