Medway Longboat 1742 by JToma -1/2" scale - by Jeff

I have heart wrenching news, for me anyways. I had a friend over and his young son got a hold of my model and while running with it, he fell and landed right on top of it. This the result. I'm going to have to start this whole thing over again as its not salvageable. 😧 😭

Heartbreaking.  Hope the little one is ok.  Maybe you can strip it down and salvage the keel at least.

The little one was unscathed thankfully.

I am sorry to see this happen, but glad the young boy is OK.  The good thing is the new model will be much better.

Ouch! So sorry to hear that Jeff. Not so sure the child would have been unscathed in my house!!!!

 

Seriously though, glad that no harm came to the little darling.

Thanks guys. You make a good point Ryland. I guess every cloud has a silver lining, This will be an opportunity for me to improve on my previous work. So for now, I'll put myself back in line to purchase another hull kit and in the meantime, I have some cannons that need rigged on my Constitution build so that will give me something to do while I wait.

Jeff....you should just figure out what sheets you actually need since you have almost everything else.   Then send me a PM.   When I start making the next batch I will make just the sheets you need to start over like the frames and keel parts...😁

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.
