Source : wikipedia The model More then 45 years ago, the Airfix Golden Hind on 1/144 scale was the very first scale model I ever built. This model now wil by a plank on frame model. And I can only do my best to make it as realistic as possible. There are no plans, no drawings and no paintings of the real ship. I just find a few etchings of about 1600 - 1620 on the internet and they are both different. On the internet there are plans . They are of Aeropiccola, an Italian company that no longer exists. I think the scale is abouth 1/50 http://www.john-tom.com/SailBoatPlans/GoldenHind/golden_hindSm.pdf They looked great in the beginning.But the more I look at them, the less good they begin look ... It seems as if the hull is too wide and the shape of the frames dont match the shape from those of Matthew Baker (A well-known shipbuilder from this period) But : It looks like nobody knows If this ship was a real "race galleon" or just an armed merchantman (privateer). Before we start Were the guns placed below dek or on the dek? I believe that all the guns were lined up below deck. And not on the deck like with most Golden Hind models. Guns on the deck may cause an unstable ship . And on the models there is not enough room to absorb the recoil of the guns and too reload them. So Mi first step is to try to build a hull with: A shape that has enough space to absorb the recoil of guns. But is not too wide Has place for 14 cannons below deck Has 2 light guns in the forecastle. Has 4 light cannons in the rear castle. Apparently it looks if there is only one ship wreck from this period is found. Called "the Princess Channel wreck” or “the Gresham ship” In this period many newly built ships were so unstable that the hull had to be adjusted immediately. With the aid of Girdling: (making the hull wider at the water line). Or furring ( make the hull below the waterline wider). Actual evidence of this was found in the Gresham ship. http://www.maritimearchaeology.dk/downloads/Furring%20in%20light%20of%2016th%20century%20ship%20design_web.pdf http://www.maritimearchaeology.dk/downloads/Full%20thesis%20bates.pdf Even on the replica of the Golden Hind the hull is widened at the waterline. I use plywood, ramin ( the pieces of ramin wood are old leftovers from construction works in our house 20 years ago) an cherry wood (from a tree that came from the garden) And the keel of the Golden Hind was laid on a sunny day the 10th of september.
  2. Hi to all, I'm new to this forum, but already have a question. I assembled in the past some plastic ship models (mainly Corel and Airfix). In the last months I started with some wooden models (2 mini-mamoli and one old viking ship - lost box, so don't know the brand). And I found I definetely prefer the wooden ones (I found mini-mamoli pretty easy). So now I would like to do something more than the mini-mamoli. I saw the Golden Hind from Occre and was thinking to buy it. But not sure about the difficulty of it. What do you think? Is it too early to do this kit? does it have a good quality? The main reasons to choose it are because I like it and because the price is pretty low (I don't want to spend too much for my 4th model, coz I know I still have a lot to learn... but I have to start from somewhere). Or do you have some other kit/brand to suggest? Thank you all for your suggestions
  3. Hello, I've never posted to this site before so I hope I'm doing it right. I am building Sir Francis Drake's "Golden Hind," from plans by Mamoli. I've made one ship before from a kit, but this is pretty much the first scratch built ship I've tried to build. This is a fun hobby but I can't say I'm that good at it so far. I getting the wood from Corwall Models in England because they have a large selection, but it takes over a month for the wood to arrive here in California. If anyone knows of an online store that has a large wood selection in the U.S. please do tell.
  4. Hey there i'm currently building Mamoli Golden Hind and am up to glueing the card decorations onto the hull. is it better to dilute the glue acrylic. not sure with card have never seen them before. in fact had i known this kit came with card would probably not have bought it. but you live and learn and so far it looks good. any suggestions welcome and appreciated. cheers will post pics of build shortly and my first build Amati Santa Maria. also whilst i'm on a roll i served on HMAS Torrens in the RAN does anyone know of any models of her on the market in any incarnation, i.e., wood, plastic etc. or of any River class DE. cheers Vossy the football god!

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.
