  4. Thanks for all the comments I still have the gundeck of the Wasa in stock for a possible next project. That is a more common project There were and are some reasons I am not so active on this and other forums, just need some time.
  5. And at last it is finished now See pics below for result. I hope you all like it. Next project is unknown yet.
  6. Well, here is first sail. Think the pics will speak for themself. Bamboo on sails: Top of mast: First sail on ship, not all ropes are placed correct already: Cheers!!
  7. Hi Antony, thanks for looking in. Hope your kit will arrive soon, so you can start and I can follow it. It is a fine kit to build, at the moment I am sewing the sails, not my favourite If I have place the first sail (probably this week) I will update the log.
  8. Thanks guys for all the comments. @Grimber I am looking forward for your buildlog @Sjors Not injured yet . Think I was lucky this time. @S. Coleman I agree that all the armor must be very heavy. Busy with sails now, hope to update my log in a few weeks. Happy holidays for all.
  9. @yvesvidal This was already finished a while ago, this log was a shortened log what i poste before on the old MSW. See http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/gallery/album/79-nave-egizia/
  10. @Yves Thanks, enough rope was in the kit. @Grant Just found some pics. This hull was a hell of a job, I can remember that very well I wish you all the luck. Jig: two planks and clamps Bended hullplanks. I soaked them in water and placed them on the hull with rubber bands. Drill holes first!!! Glue the planks with rubber bands, clamps, tapes, etc I hope this is usefull for you.
  11. Thanks guys @Grant This is a shortened log, the full log was on the old MSW. I used a kind of jig to give more strength to the hull. In my first post you can see it only a bit, I will have a look for more pics.
  12. Hi Peter, Thanks for looking in. I cannot read Korean language, so it is possible the plate name is upside down. It was a 50% chance It will be difficult to turn it now.

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.
