HMS Winchelsea - 1764 - Scratch by Chuck (1/4" scale) - version two

Recommended Posts


Reading through this thread regarding the "Winnie" has really whetted my appetite.  Your work looks absolutely marvelous.  Are you taking names for "pre-sales" or will it be first come, first served?  If you are taking names, please add Jim Van Laningham of Boone, NC, to your list. Otherwise, I will just keep my eyes peeled here and on your website for the first installment of the model and hope for the best.  If the "Winnie" is anything like your Medway Longboat on which I am working now (and I am sure it will be even better), it will be absolutely wonderful.  I really look forward to building it!

Thank you very much.  It will be a while yet.  I dont want to release the starter package until I am well ahead of folks.  Not until at least the planking is completed.  I did however finalize the starter package parts and I will probably start laser cuttinf them next month.  I just want to start stockpiling them for the eventual release.


But yes it will be a first come first serve sort of thing.

Hey Chuck,

Youre doing a beautiful job here - as Greg suggested - maybe try another finish.  I do like the idea of either a shellac finish which the masters used - wouldnt be tough to learn that technique or sanding sealer for an unfinished look....


Regardless - nice work !!!

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.
