Hi Sjors!

Thx and the last picture is already the second planking, which I just finished this evening. So tomorrow I'll start sanding the whole thing, drawing the waterline, put some 2x3mm planks on the hull, and than start painting the hull.

@Popeye: I just followed the curves of the hull:D


Second planking is done. Today I wanted to start painting the hull but all my admirilitypaint "Dull White" changed in.......white water!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All three bottles which I ordered 3 month ago!!!!! So I had to throw away €20,= paint. In all those years of building I never saw that before....

So I have to wait till the new paint arrives:(

Thx Zappto:)


Hi all!!

A bit late but first  my best wishes for 2018 to you all!!

I wasn't able to upgrade for a while. First had to do all christmasdecorations and remove it all again. Than my computer died:angry:. Just got it back yesterday after 3 weeks!!

I have finished the hull for now and just started with the decorations. The fitting of decorations is very bad. Many decorations are to big to fit so I have to downsize many peaces. The lantern on the stern floated about 7mm above the deck, so I put a peace of wood under it. Looks ok now. And I must say.... untill now I am very satisfied how it looks. Very very very shiny:D:D

@ Edwin and Popeye: thx both for your kind words:)


And an update:

Now I know why that lantern on the stern was floating 7mm above the deck:D:D. Only its very strange that they tell you how its done 11 (!!!) pages further in the instructionbook. Sergal renewed the instructionbook but its still very bad.


And more "bling bling".

@Antony, Piet, Donn and Michael: thx all for all the kind words :). And Michael: you are more than welcome, just take some popcorn:D.


And my weekly update: I am still very busy with all the decorations. And I think 50% of all the brass parts don't fit and I have to make them a bit smaller. And doing that in a way you can't see it. Till now I am satisfied how it looks.

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.
