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

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Dromon - forecastle, Greek fire projector, windlass and mast/yard supports in place. Imperial skini (poop awning) done and temporarily in position, along with side-castles, masts and yards and some of the figures (including Emperor Alexios I under the awning). Decking incomplete awaiting insertion of the lower oars. 

 

Note the 50 upper deck oars next to ship's hull. That's only half of them, though all are complete; I haven't shown the rest as I've configured them with a block instead of a grip at the handle end, so they can be glued to the under-deck frame (which will be hidden below decks on the finished model).

I was getting  near the end of rigging the Granado, doing the braces , when I ran out of 0.25 natural line!  I was anticipating this and should have ordered more earlier but I kept postponing thinking it might just last😟. Now I have to wait for a delivery from

Jotika. 

Well gives me a chance to get back to the Charles W Morgan that has been sitting on the workbench patiently waiting for me to finish the rigging.  I guess I should add a build log photo or two.  That can wait until tomorrow.

Here’s an up-to-date picture of the ‘doll boat.’ I’ve been working on details for the head and the galley. Haven’t caught the build log up to current state, but hope to soon.

Royal Louis is still in her early days of construction. Second layer of planking is underway on both sides with the wales and planks of the lower gun deck in place the the middle deck wales started.

Ahoy Mates

 

Here's my Nina 1/65 Amati kit just about completed. I only used the bulkheads and keel from the kit. Rest is scratch built. Just working on the clue lines and their coils. Then It's complete except for setting it on it's base. This is the last ship that my late Pickels was around to help me work on it. Should have a new cat in July.

Starboard side planking completed on the MS 18th Century Armed Longboat, now finishing the port side. Needed to do lots of shimming to keep the hull as flush as possible. Also I'm running short on the 1/4" x 1/16" planking material but I have lots of extra strips of various sizes in my stashes. But like I said in my build log, "the hull will be painted white". Trying to make it to recreate the "Syren's" ship's boat.

At last! All the rigging is in place. Now I have to snug up the lines, trim excess and make rope coils.  And yes, hang the anchor, touch up paint, put on the swivel guns, which I left off as I knew I would have knocked them all off by now.😳

I've been remiss in my updates here.    Here's latest... the gundeck is just about done with the last thing I've done to date is the stoves (Top pick).  I'm now working on the ship's boats with go on the gundeck also.  Largest (the longboat) is complete and I'm working on the barge and the cutter.

To everyone, just a gentle reminder that this thread is reserved for brief updates only (please see guidelines in original post). Comments are encouraged but should go in the builder's original build log -- which is why we ask that all posts here include a link to the current log in the builder's signature.

 

Thank you!

Good point, but what if one hasn’t done a build log and just wants to show occasional progress?

That's pretty much a build log -- and we have an area for that. 😉

 

Seriously, though, I have turned a blind eye towards minor bending of the law (e.g. extra photo, no link), but I will hold fast to the no chit-chat rule.

Hi folks

 

This is my latest project; a scratch-built mega yacht, Sapphire.  There’s still a lot of work to go, but eventually she should have a fully detailed interior, with all decks and superstructure being fully removable.  

 

Enjoy.

 

Thanks

 

Patrick

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.
