As said I am trying tio finish all on the gun deck.

Just a short note and update as it has been quite some weeks now. And I do not wat you to think I stopped building ;)

The hand has healed well so we can start building again. But we first went to Down under for 5 weeks I had hoped to visit the Endeavour but is was closed until end of this month.


I am still thinking about the mass production of hinges so in the meantime I started working on Het Torentje...

All still dryfit and first test models. And not to my satisfaction but we are getting there.

Just before we go into the new year a last update. As the coming weeks the warf will be closed.

I was not happy with the gallery and the method of the filling blocks. It put me in trouble for planking. So I went with an early advise of someone to make the bottom parts of 1 piece of layered oak. I used 3 layers of 6mm wide that nicely fits the size and shows an imaginary planking.

The pictures explain the rest I think.












I am going to fill the last part up and then plank it with same width small pieces.

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.
