Hubac; Thanks for stopping in and for the gracious comment

 

Ian: I never really left the shipyard, I put the Stefano aside to build the Liburnian Novilara but it is done now so Stefano is back in the shipyard again. Thanks for dropping by

Drilling out pin rails, actually just slightly enlarging the existing holes using sensitive drilling attachment on Sherline mill

Cutting chain plates from photo etch sheet

Although I cleaned and prepped the chain plates for blackening in the end i went for painting instead. They were first primed with metal primer then painted with acrylic paint, there are no severe bends on these so paint cracking should not be an issue. The black ring is for the rudder opening on the bottom of the transom.

Rudder hole is up next so I thought making the rudder would be a good idea

 And how he looks now. Belaying pins are installed just for the picture they are not glued in place.

 Thanks for stopping in.

Very neat and tidy work.  Interesting arrangement with the deadeyes inboard of the bullwarks.  I have not seen that before but I am far from any kind of expert.  The build logs (like yours) of these Maristella kits have me very interested in possibly trying one myself for my next project.

Oc: Thanks for stopping in

Dave: Thanks Dave

Frank; So good to hear from you Frank, Thanks so much

David: Thanks David, it is about the same size as your Titanic which you will have loads of fun with

Gary: Thanks Gary, they really are fine kits that are very well thought out. I highly recommend them

Ian: Thanks, there is a Massive amount of rigging coming, but not until after the massive amount of copper plates that is coming sooner!!!

Jim: Thanks. The sensitive drilling attachment is, in my mind, a must. It helps things go along so much faster and easier when using smaller bits. It would be a toss up as to whether I would buy the DRO or the sensitive drilling attachment first. I would say if you are serious enough to have a Sherline mill a/o lathe you should really have both. Christmas is coming, spoil yourself!!

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.
