Peter, as you say, brilliantly executed! Very nice job on the planking.

You could always skip the treenails. 😎

Nah, I'm too stubbern to leave it. I'm not happy with the staining attempts on the sample yet, but last night I pencil marked one side of the hull in preparation for the drilling. There is no way back now....lol

Just started viewing this build. Beautiful work. I will watching your build and hope to learn good practices for my own build, whenever I feel ready to start! I love the dremel support idea, water bottle counterweight and all!

are you drilling through or just deep enough to be filled in for appearance?

Hi Voyageur.

I'm drilling just a few mm so it can be filled with wood filler and sanded down after.

Time for another update. Thanks for the likes everyone, they are certainly appreciated.

Planking the hull is finished and the treenails have been added as well. I decided to not paint the planks below the wales white but to just coat them with a sanding sealer and clear varnish. With the stain I used above the wales there is enough colour contrast. The stain didn't give a uniform finish as I feared but it is what it is. I don't think its too bad and the busier it gets in thore areas the less noticable it becomes.

Next stage will be the Stern and quarter galleries. Fingers crossed on that one.

Here are some photo's

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.
