This build looks amazing. I have the kit on my shelf waiting for me to finish up a couple projects. I can't wait to get started and this log will be a big help. You did a fantastic job on the deck in particular.

Thank you Bobby, for the nice comment.

She is a nice build, sometimes I have stayed true to the instructions other times other sources have been to help. 

Right now I am in stand still due other commitments. Looking forward to get going again,  and also seeing your build log.

I have finally been able to work on my dear Bluenose.

Starting up where I left off wasn't to hard. A light clean up of the work-area and I was ready again.

Creating the Gammon iron for the bowsprit was easier than I thought, using the plywood from bulkheads and false keel, I had the right thickness and with a bowsprit ready shaped I clamped it down and used a plier to get the angles.

The aft hatch was created with a center block and strips on the side. The sides are taller to sit the umber top piece.
Again this will be natural colored just like the other hatch.

Aft hatch coming together with eye-connectors on port and starboard side.

This is a composite picture, so there might some misalignment within. Sorry about that.

I had a lot of thoughts around the main cabin, and finally decided to make it out from solid basswood.

I am so glad having Byrnes thickness sander, to get the material down to right thickness before applying any roofmaterial.

In order to get the cabin shaped correctly I started hollowing it out, to get some walls.

More chiseling is to be done.

This will also allow to create the port and starboard skylights.

Placing a coarse sandpaper over the area where the cabin is to be located I was able to create uniformed "walls".

Good to see you at it again, Per.  You are coming along nicely.

As I am cheating when building the main cabin, instead of planking the sides I am using a sewing thread to create the illusion of plank separation. When 16" away I can't tell if it's scribed or not. The line is glued into places with diluted wooden glue.

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.
