Hello Kevin

I quote [ Lovely work,  lol i hope the comfort of the matresses is up to standard] I am sure that the mattress pads will be very comply as my Admiral sets very high standards in her sewing ,                                                                          ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence

Hello Ship Mates

We have did a little more on our Oliver Cromwell build, We have added the 3 break down bulkheads for the 3 cabins on the Starboard Side, those of the Gunner, Lieutenant and also the Purser. Can not seam to get going since our R&R Vacation, it could be the summer heat as it has been quite warm here the last little while., but as time goes on things should improve,                                ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence

Hello Ship Mates

 

Back in the Old Ship Yard again, after working with Bulkheads and Cabins on the Lower Deck. For so long the little fellows and I decided to get back with some larger timbers. We have cut and dry fitted all of the Beams for the Main Deck. The after Beams are clamped in place for the fitting of the Carlings that in time will support the Ledge Beams.

 

We do realize that we have gotten just a bit ahead of our selves. Were waiting for the Grating to arrive but it looks like we will have to set up our little Byrnes Table Saw and cut a few of our own.

 

We will have to speak with our Electrical Technician's about the mess of piled up wires in the Well Area, not a nice sight as it is,                Enjoy.

 

Regards   Lawrence

Lawrence,

Lovely work, my friend.  She's coming together beautifully.

Thank you Mark, the fitting of the Carlings and the Ledge Beams will require a lot of fitting, but first I must turn my attention on the Gratings for the Lower Deck and those mattress pads,                                                          ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence

Hello Ship Mates

 

Well we did have some Laser Grating on ordered but it has not come as yet, and we did want to start closing up the Lower Deck. So to make a story short the little fellows and I set up the Byrne’s table saw and made a simple jig to cut the Gratings on. We then assembled the Grating for the Mane Hatch and built a Hatch Coaming for it. We now have to do the same for the Forward Hatch and also for the little Hatch in front of the Aft Pantry,         ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence

Hello Dennis, I thank you very much for your very kind words they are very much appreciated. Yes our son has a long hard struggle ahead of him. He is not telling us a whole lot as he does not want his mother to worry.

Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I are trying to keep busy, we are working on the 3 Gratings on the Lower Deck that must be completed before we can glue in the Beams and Carlings for the Mane Deck,                                                                    ENJOY

Great job on the gratings!

Thanks Dave, yes the gratings are a challenge in them selves. I did have some Laser Cur Gratings on order but they have not come as yet and I wanted  to continue working on the Beams and Carlings for the Mane Deck so I ended up making my own, a rather fun job,                          ENJOY.

Nice work on the grates, Lawrence.   You've taken to scratch building like a fish takes to water.

Thanks Mark, Yes this scratch building dose give the builder a lot of opportunity to add a lot of detail that I love to do,                    ENJOY.

Hi Lawrence

 

I echo everyone’s comments about the gratings.  They’re seriously nice!

 

Well done!

 

Cheers. 

 

Patrick

 

Thanks Patrick, I did have laser cut Gratings on order but they have not arrived as yet and I wanted to start closing in the Upper Deck Beams and Carlings and these Gratings had to be installed first, they were rather fun to build,                                             ENJOY.

Hello Ship Mates

Well the little fellows and I have finally completed the 3 Gratings for the Lower Deck and we did install them last night. My Admiral has not as yet sewed up the 8 required mattress pads for this deck as she is all tied up with crouching a baby blanket for our soon to arrive Great Grand Child, but these can be installed at a later date and before the Mane deck is planked. We found the Gratings a rather fun thing to build but a bit finicky,    ENJOY.

Hello Ship Mates

The little fellows and I have spent the last week and a half working on and installing the Beams, Ledges and the Carlings that support the Mane Deck. These are all installed except for the Ledges around the Riding Pins and those around the ships well as these give us access to the Led Lighting that will be installed on the Lower Deck, this will be our next task,                                              Enjoy.

                                                                                                    Hello Ship Mates

It has been a rather busy week for the little fellows and I in the Old Ship Yare. We installed our Led Lamps on the lower deck and cleaned up that mess of wires in the ships Well area. We also installed a backer outer plank on the Main Deck as with the up and coming Cut Outs the staggered Deck Beams surely would have been an eye sour. We also at this time gave the Lower deck area a couple of coats of Tung Oil, it sure dose spruce up the wood. To top up our week we built a couple of sets of Stairs to be give access to the Lower Deck area,               ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence

Spick and span, those stairs turned out well, Lawrence

  • Thank you Carl, the stairs are really not all that hard to do if you have a Byrnes table saw,                ENJOY.

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.
