  1. Hi everyone, here's a link to my blog where I'm attempting my first model build ever. I chose a pretty difficult one apparently but I'm excited to see how it turns out. I started the Revell 1:96 USS Constitution build a year ago and then took a long break but I'm back now to try and finish it. I'd say I'm about 40% complete. This website has been a huge help in regards to viewing other's builds and giving me advice/tips on constructing my own ship, so thanks to the fellow builders. Here's my link! Feel free to comment or give advice either here or on the blog itself. Feedback is welcomed! http://shipsofsean.blogspot.com/
  2. all, My Halve Maen build was already on hold, but during our move to a new house in November 2015, she got lost because one of our friends put her box on the pavement instead of in our car. After that the enthusiasm to build was completely gone. I spent last year enjoying my other hobbies. But, as a Dutch saying goes: 'Blood is thicker than water' and the urge to build another ship came back. So, May I present to you the Spanish Galleon Nuestra Señora del Pilar De Zaragoza (Our lady of the pillar of Zaragoza), a Spanish Treasure Galleon. Measurements Length: 1110 mm Height: 970 mm Width: 520 mm History During the 17th and 18th centuries Spanish galleons served the Spanish crown as merchantmen and warships. Many of them sailed between Acapulco and Manila, transporting South American silver to the Philippines and exotic goods from Asia to Mexico, from where the treasures were sent back to Spain. Commisioned in 1731 and launched in 1733, Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza (Our Lady of the Pillar of Zaragoza) was one of these Manila Galleons built of the finest Philippine wood, she was 112 feet on deck and displaced 1,000 tons. A 4th rate of the Cavogonda class, she was fitted with 50 cannon, two stern chasers and six swivel guns. She carried a crew of 385 men. For twenty years she sailed the route from Mexico to Manila and in 1750 underwent a complete refit in the Port of Cavite. In 1750, on her last voyage, she set sail from Manila bound for Acapulco. Despite being overloaded, and contrary to the opinion of both pilots and Master, her Captain insisted on weighing anchor at the beginning of September. En route for the Mariana Islands, in the Pacific, they began to have difficulties after sailing into a heavy storm, and she sank taking all of her crew down with her. Frames dry fit.

  3. Hello friends, as the S/S Warkworth costs a plenty of mindwork I decided to add a second project less complicated and time consuming. So I leafed through the plans I've stored and found some very nice old "chances" but mostly the were to complicated and sophisticated as a "sidecar-building". So I figured out the exercisebook sized Modelarstwo Okretowe Special No. 19 of May 2015: The prototype is a Sicilan/Southitalian Coasting boat of the 1860th with a length between 15 to 20 meters and a 1/3 Length/Breadth ratio. Here a pencil drawing I found several years ago in teh web - I think on an Italian site. Here well to see the line of scuppers on the underside of the bulkwalk. The Lauretto was used for short sea trades and a fasr as my Latin knowledge translates some Italian websides I figured out thet the latin-rigged boats made also journeys to the North African coast. So this little ships were used in transport purposes and fast and handy ships to sail. It looks like the were used in transport of general cargo in sacks, barrels and boxes - no bulk cargos seem to be stored under the hatches. I couldnt find out what are the diffrences and relationsship features to the also latin-rigged Schiffazzo - but there were both: similaritys and diffrences. But let stay us with the Lautello in exspecial the "after castle" that is not found on the threemasted 1 Schiffazzo -here scale to 1/50; As you can see from the MO-issiue's cover the hatches are closely covered - the plan gives us a grating hatchcover all over here. The plans delievered with the MO are allways very good and they have got a fantasic price. I was able to enlarge the hull's drawings up to 1/50 and so I can start with the work very fast - hopefully some more knowledgeable of you may help with further and deeper information to this article. Next stop: taking photos of the enlarged plan. 1 edit

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.
