HMS Victory by Jonesey - Corel - Scale 1: 98

Recommended Posts

Had a break from stern fillers today and did some other stuff


Finished installing the gun port backings and painted them black.


Cut, shaped and dry fitted the deck beams part 28


Tested the fit of one blank without bending, just to get a feel for how much bending is required


All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed today's efforts


The lower deck I've attempted to age it. I applied some walnut stain (which comes out black) then scraped it back to reveal the original surface.

The walnut has really penetrated into the deck but looking it closely, it's left some lovely black lines in the grain after scraping

I'm not worried about some of the blacker areas towards the front & rear of the deck as these areas will be hidden by the main deck

Had a bit of an accident tonight.

I snapped off the top of one of the bulkheads 😕


After sanding the edges down there was a gap of about 2 mm which meant the piece I intended to glue back on was 2mm lower than it should be, so I had to make a small filler to raise it back up

If it all sticks ok, it shouldn't be a problem as the top deck isn't glued down yet and the offending piece will be hidden on the outside by the hull planking and on the inside, it's covered by the top deck


Set me back by another evening though.

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.
