Continental Frigate Confederacy 1778 by Dubz - 1:64 - kit based semi scratch

Recommended Posts

Bow filler block shaping help! So wanted to add solid filler block to the bow of my build but this is the first time doing such and I am not sure how to not only shape it properly but also get both sides matching before I glue them in. I will not be able to shape it to well after glue as the stem assembly will be in the way to fair it. Could use some suggestions/guidance on this please!

The last time I did this particular task I made what amounted to a series of hawse pieces(parallel to the keel).The first was flush to the keel,following the rabbet and faired into it.The remainder of the several pieces were separated by spacers of equal thickness.Each piece  as you work outward will pretty much reveal the required shape of the next to follow.You could just tack glue them and then use them to produce corresponding pieces for the opposite side. I found this to be much less troublesome than when I carved the two pieces out of a solid block. I hope this is described clearly enough and that it helps

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.
