At a Glance: A Snapshot of MSW Members' Current Projects

Recommended Posts

Finally! Four stacks :)001.thumb.jpg.37984f824abb9ce30699d68948fa4cc8.jpg

They really gave me a hard time. The photoetch for them was a bit too much.

But then again: I set up WAY too high goals for me with this build.

Having built my last model in prehistoric times (35 years ago, no photoetch, no

aftermarket at all, only Humbrol enamels, only glue in a tube etc.) I should have

understood that this was WAY to much for my skillset.

   Anyway...moving on ;)

Just a gentle reminder.   Please go back and delete your previous update when you post a new one.  I just spent a good hour tidying things up.

 

And comments should be made in the appropriate build log, not here! Thanks! 🙂

The current status of my dromon. The deck is complete and the pavesade is in place to support the shields along the side. All the lower oars are in place and I've put one of the upper bank on to check how it all works. The side castles, the masts and the awning at the stern are still dry fitted. I'm not ready to glue them in place yet - other things still need to be done first. And though the yards are lowered and "stored" in this photo, I intend to have her under both oars and sail.

Cheers,

PS: oops - Lower gun deck - 1 light out - was a bad connection 😊 ok now

Great Harry at its current stage of completion. The hatch cover and masts are dry-fitted; the mainmast and foremast are original and the mizzen and bonaventure mizzen masts are new.

 

There is a mix below of original spars (the bowsprit, fore topmast and mainyard) and new ones (main topmast - though I was able to salvage the original fighting top and re-use it - and the lateen yards). Original shrouds and ratlines, and all these sails are original, but to be replaced with new ones.

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.
