San Felipe by Sherry – Scale 1:96 (First Scratch Build)

Recommended Posts

I would like to thank everyone for the kind words and well wishes for my brother. My heart is saddened, beyond words, to report that he passed away this afternoon.

 

I know this is a build log for my ship, but I would like to post one photo as a mini tribute to him - my favourite photo of him:

Sherry,

 

I'm saddened to hear this.  A good picture and fond memories are the best way to remember anyone who's not with us anymore.  I hope your good memories will ease your pain.

Dear Sherry, I lost my elder brother four years ago. We were both modellers and when he died I had no one to share my hobby with until I found this website and the marvellous people who populate it. I often think of him when I'm building my model ship and when I saw Anjas moving sentiment at the end of her posts I must admit to shedding a few tears. My sincere condolences on the sad loss of your brother

Thank-you to everyone for the kind words and support. The shipyard was quiet for a while, but lately I found the time and desire to make sawdust again.

 

Now on to the update.

 

I managed to cut the curved railings at the bow from a half dowel that I had first hollowed with some of my carving tools, and then installed them.

I used some brass wire, which I coiled, cut, and flattened, for the outer face of the round gun ports.

The railings are finished, as well as one of the stern decorations.

The flash was a little extreme in this photo and as a result the blue appears much brighter than it really is.

And this is where she stands at the moment.

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.
