  1. As I said in my "new members introduction post" some time ago, I hesitated to start a second build log here, since I have an extensive build log on a Dutch forum. As this Dutch forum is basically/mainly an RC flying forum and over the last half-year/year the historical ship build sub-forum has gotten quieter by the day and most of the ship building persons that are still active there, are also active here on MSW. So now I have decided to also start a build log here on MSW. It might not be an day-to-day active log as on the Dutch forum but I will see how it evolves. The reason is mostly because this forum is much more active and has a much broader reach. In this first post I will give a very short survey from start to the status of today. Why I build something As of January 2014 I have become ‘pensionado’ by lucky circumstances! So a lot of hours spare time. Since my younger years I have always had a hobby whereby my hands played an important part. Plastic motor models, aircraft models where my favourites back then. I switched to electronics (my profession as an engineer) and built my own loudspeakers (woodworkingJ) and HIFI equipment for many years. Now why a ship and particularly why this ship? My family line has a long history (back to the 1700’s) of what we call “binnenschippers”, persons that hauled merchandise/goods by ship from the North sea ports land inwards. My grandfather was the last in line who trade down the Rhine as far as Koblenz. So I started reading books and visiting forums. Now as a child I visited the “Batavia Warf” quite often with my parents and later on with my own kids I have witnessed the start (and death) of the 7-Provinciën. Also a mysterious ship where little was known so it leaves a lot to the builder to decide and come up with. A choice was easily made. My goals! First of all: I have fun and love building and working with the wood!! It’s not my intention at all to build the best looking or the most historical correct ship! Just the fun of building it is my main and first goal. Being busy and figuring out how I can get something done. Getting acquainted with new skills I need and to perform certain tasks. That’s what I like about it. It’s my first build both in wood and as a ship, so I will get to learn and master many things. I have chosen to follow the drawings made by Otte Blom. Not because they are the best but because they appealed to me the most. The whole build might not be completed, I might stop at admiralty level. I am not so much into knitting and roping but who knows…. I started the build around summer 2014. Sometimes I stop for a while, working on other projects. It’s mainly build from European oak, (apart from parts that were in those days also in pine (grenen) or other materials were used). How far I am: The pictures speak for itself I would say. I tried to take some representing pics from the start up to now. Have fun building….. Hans. This is from around November 2014. (I lost earlier pictures:( ) My first method of framing. I changed methods in a later stage. I started working them in lots. A much better way to keep the correct lining of the hull. I finalised the hull around January 2016. The reason for taking that long is that when I got tired of the treadmill of framing I stopped for weeks or worked on other parts, like the windows below.

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.
