  1. Hey all! After seeing so many wonderful build logs of this ship, and also following along with Chuck's log, I couldnt resist and had to start a build of my own. I don't have as much time as I would like, so I decided to order the bulkheads, chapter 1, and chapter 2 from Syren. I ordered it on dec 22nd as a Christmas present, and I was very surprised I received it on the 26th! With the holidays, I was sure it wouldn't come in until after new years. Thank you Chuck! You never stop impressing me! From what I have done so far, I have completed the stem except for adding the wipe on poly. It is amazing how well the laser cut parts fit together! It really required very minimal sanding. The Chery is very beautiful and I am very happy with the result. It was great that Chuck included a few extra cuts of the smaller pieces in case any of them got damaged while sanding or trying to fit the part. That did come in handy for me. I then looked at the bulkheads and false keel pieces. I noticed that quite a few of the plywood boards were warped some. So this will need to be corrected. I glued all 3 pieces of the false keel together on my desk. Since 2 out of 3 pieces were somewhat warped, I took a wet towel and dabbed it over the curved sections and put weights on those places to straighten it out. Once I have my building. Board made, I will move the false keel to the building board to make sure it's as true as I can get it. I am surprised at how big the ship is! It will be very impressive to look at through out the entire build. I did talk to my wife and got the approval to get a nice table saw to mill the wood I will need. I will be ordering it in January.

  2. With trepidation I'm starting this project. I will be attempting to scratch build the components although I'm likely to take advantage of special mini-kits like lanterns and carvings. I have most of the tools I need for a scratch build but not much useful experience! I'm happy to follow the suggestion and stick with cedar for the build. I have too many unfinished projects to warrant starting another. However this one pulled me in both by the promise of learning some new skills and by the (probably optimistic) belief that I can multitask several builds at different stages completion. It is also motivation to be part of a group project. Chuck's willingness to mentor the group is a great plus. Cha Gheill

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.
