  1. Can somebody give me an idea of the type of dimension that I would expect for the 'room and space' for the frames of an English schooner of the 18C. Reason for asking is that I would like to add trennals/ treenails to the hull of a 1:80 model and therefore am looking for a reasonable frame centre to frame centre measurement that is not too wildly exaggerated. Pete
  2. Hello all, I am doing some research on my next build. I would like to try a scratch POF of the HMS Leopard. It will be my first scratch so I have been taking my time and making sure I understand what I am getting into with regards to the plans. I have the the John McKay plans and it shows a cross section view which is very helpful. I am thinking about partially showing the inside of the hull just to make things interesting... The only question I have is about the rider (item #6). I have not found much info on how the riders are are attached to the frame. From the section view and my engineering background I am thinking the floor and futtock riders are attached directly to the futtock frame itself since they are for extra support. I have the book The 50 Gun Ship by Rif Winfield and it shows a cross section but not much different than the McKay plan... still have the same question. I attached a sketch below of how I think the framing should look... is this correct? I can't see it making much sense to put both the riders and the knees over the inner planking. You would have to dismantle 1/2 the ship to replace planks and it would lessen the reinforcing power of these items. I am thinking the sided dimension of the rider to be about half of the futtock assembly. In my case this leaves about 4" on either side of the rider to tree nail the inner planks to the futtocks. The knees would then be 4" sided and be flush with the outer sides of the futtock. Not sure how the inner planks would be attached to the futtocks next to the knees since there is nothing left to nail the planks to. I am thinking another 4" wide "spacer" attached to the face of the futtock and that would be used to attach the inner planks next to the knees. I am also assuming my room and space setup is correct; 32" on centers with 16" sided futtocks ( 2 pieces 8" wide with staggered joints) and then 16" of space. Sorry for the long post and any help clarifying this for me would be much appreciated. Tom Edited the word "riser" to rider so it makes sense. However, the sketch still says "riser".Thanks Druxey.
  3. Greetings. I'm about to ship out another wonderful kit from Amati; their Pegasus model. As with Lady Nelson, the the frame is constructed with MDF instead of plywood. I would like to get some opinions about how this material compares with good, old, plywood? Is there a limit to the size of model that can use this stuff? Has anyone broken such a frame during construction? In considering future laser-cutting, I am considering sourcing and using this material. What do you think? Best Regards, Rick Shousha Montreal www.modellers-workshop.com
  4. I was wondering if anyone has tried strengthening fragile and weak parts of bulkheads and deck frames by coating the areas with dilute PVA? I have made paper quite stiff this way. Have not tried it yet. Any thoughts?
  5. I am getting ready to start rattlesnake, I Dave at the lumberyard sent me the most incredible wood package imaginable so the questions begin. I am taking photos to hopefully start a log soon. Anyway, I am marking the rabbet when it occurred to me that if I make this open frame at least to the wales, do I need a rabbet? Maybe I will do more of a cutaway look than pure admiralty, ie planking at the bow and stern for a few inches then left open. Any thoughts and any logs to look at are welcome Thanks Ira

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.
