  1. I have searched and searched, does anyone have the instructions for the Bluenose II? i was able to find the Belem 1896 but no luck for the Bluenose II scooter
  2. Hello All, I have just become a member and am already half way through my second build, Bluenose II. I have already built the Juan Sebastian Elcano and now I'm building this kit to gain more experience before I go for a more challenging project, maybe the HMS Victory 1:72 scale. From what I have seen in this forum I am sure I will learn a lot. I haven't kept any photos of my work in progress for the Bluenose so I uploaded a few images showing what I have finished up to now. I will upload more images as I go along and probably put forward a few (maybe a lot) questions. I will appreciate any comments and hints where I can improve. Hull and deck finished, painted and varnished. Bowsprit fitted as well. Have prepared most of the cabins, etc to go on deck. Stern Cabin Central mess room Now finishing the boats to go on deck. Thanking you for all the support which I'm sure I will receive Regards Robert
  3. My current build in progress after having done the Amati Bounty. I thought I would try something different and perhaps easier before my next biggy... the Amerigo Vespucci. Deck Planking Completed Some good progress made : Now Ready for the sails: Previous Build: Amati Bounty 1787. Victory Models - Lady Nelson; Artesenia Latina - Virginia 1819
  4. Okay, here we go with a full on proper model ship from a kit. I've got all the instructions, both AL's (thanks to Heronguy for providing those pdfs!) and John Earl's articles about its construction. I'm setting up my workspace and waiting for file to be uploaded to icloud so I can reference them on my ipad. I wanted to just print them out but these stupid refabricated print cartridges aren't being recognized by my printer so gotta go get new cartridges. Won't let that stop me from getting started. I was going to wait on this until I finished the Red Dragon but it has been mentioned that the BN2 is a pretty good starter build. Not easy, but the hull is more straightforward than others. Which is good because I've never done actual planking before. I had some intro with the Sakkonett but that was just four pieces of wood soaked in ammonia solution then shaped. Easily managed pieces. No calculations. No marking plank space. Etc. But I've got good resources and am ready to get a move on. I cope with depression in various ways, and this is one of them that has helped the most. No photos yet.
  5. Started this Kit 6 years ago . And put it down for a while. Now im back at it again. Hopefully I can get it done before my eyes give out or im pushing one of these (see Below). I built the Keel and Bulkhead and other parts from scrapwood . I saved the origionals incase I decide to build another. Actually I started two of them . One A bluenose II . The other I don't Know, maybe the Blunose I or maybe to sell or give to someone I like . Ive looked at other build logs for this kit and have seen some good work. as soon as I find some of the pics Ive taken from the beginning I'll post a few to start to catch up to where im at now which is deck planking. for some reason I decided to do that before the Hull Planking. I'll try to get those pics up soon. I look forward to it and your comments and suggestions ! Lacy J.
  6. This is my first build log as well as my first wooden ship. I've had this ship for a couple of years now, received it as a birthday gift. Due to nerves I think this may be the reason it took me so long to get started. Finally I figured since this is my first wooden model I would just go for it and see what happens. So far I have completed the laying of the planks on the port side of the hull and I'm now working on the starboard side. If anyone has any tip or suggestions I'm ready to hear.
  7. After months of lurking it's time to jump in. My lovely bride gave me this model for my birthday even though I had not gotten very far on the one she had given me the prior year (HMS Supply/1788 aldo AL). Posting progress here will, hopefully, keep me from being sidetracked so often onto other projects. Two instruction manuals - 56 pages (in 7 languages) for the hull and a large format, 22 page one for the masts and rigging. Too bad I can't read all 7 languages to see if they are different.
  8. Hello, had a knee operation last week so spending some time at home which after a day already had me thinking of what can I start to do to help pass the time and build a model came to mind, many years ago I was always build plastic kits, balsa planes etc. when I joined the navy as a young man even did a few more plastic kits during training, then it all fizzled out most likely due to beer women etc. and the years slowly passed. Now having aged a few years (46 now) I am rewinding the clock and going back to modelling again, whist signed up for a magazine HMS Victory kit that will take some time to collect I have bought a Billing Boats 1-100 Bluenose II kit to start and try and build up my skills. Box opened and starting to build the first half of the hull, seems this version the hull is built in two half’s built flat mounting the bulkheads (at least some of these ships terms are not totally new to myself, But I did serve in Nuclear Submarines so not used to the floating kind or targets as they were called.) Will welcome any tips.

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.
