Le Camaret by greatgalleons - Constructo - 1:66 - aka A. Jorden

Recommended Posts

I'm currently building the Yacht America and waiting for better weather to put some final touches which require outdoors use.  

 

I started the model Le Camaret by constructo to keep my hands busy since most of the build will be using unpainted wood . 

 

the kit is a bit dated, the wood is very dry and brittle but should work just fine.

I soak the pine wood hull planking in water for about 30 minutes or more, I use a 2" pvc pipe with end cap filled with water. I use a heated plank bender also.

I will attempt to glue the Pine wood planks without tack holes so I use a technique using thumb tacks with wood spacer.

I used this technique while hull planking the Model Shipways Confederacy, it work pretty well on that build.

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.
