Forgot to mentionnthat I tried something a bit different and used a cut off wheel in my Dremel to cut the vertical portions and a 1/2 inch chisel for the horizontal psrt.Worked quite well and afforded me precise control of the delth of the cuts.

Installed the keel and the stem.I used mahoga`y because the basswood kept splitting.I had to putty the gaps and drilled the mast holes and constructed the bowsprit and jibbom.As is my normal prsctice,I had to use heavy plastic for the doublingsvbecause the wood kept spltting when i attempted to drill the holes so close together.

Thanks!I am hoping to motorize it so that the side paddles rotate. THAT WOULD BE COOL,,!

 

That would be very cool!  Are you going to scratch build the deck-house structures so there is room for battery and motor?

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.
