Thank you David, added few parts on the second deck, it is so small parts, very  hard to handle. All metal parts needs a lot of trim, sanding and painting, i guess it is because of very old kit. Few photos.

Thank you David, Scot, appreciate that. My work skills not so good, but i try to solve the problems. This is the kit not for beginner, a lot of tricky places, really hard to handle ! I am glad i have build one ship already. Got this kit on ebay, I liked it because it is old time galleon, that era of time was gold age for Dutch.  So today working on stern, all gold pieces need sanding, repaint, a lot of detailed work.

Few photos.

Thank you all for nice words. I keep working on the stern lights, i want to place little led light in them. Had to drill little hole for led light  to enter the light and also removed a piece of metal inside the light. Few photos.

I bet that spindle is hollow hence the reason for the wiring;)

Hi all, many thanks David, Jim, Ferit, OC, Mike for nice comments, it is nice to hear you like it. I was working on my long boat this week. All i got with the kit was nice wood hull, no ruder and rows. I still think how should look second rowboat holder, which should be on first boat, not sure what style to creat. Few photos of this week work.

Thank you for kind words. OC, they should place more attention on the long boats indeed! Work going on the lanterns for the ship, i will scratch build them and will place Pico led inside. I got Pico led warm white, but it looks like it is very cold, lucky they do not heat and is possible to paint them, i will use yellow or orange color to get warm light. Work on the lanterns are so small, it takes a lot of time. Few photos full size ship.

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.
