Thanks so much Ben. It only seems fast because I have so much time to spend on her.

I just completed the last steps before moving on to the lower hull planking. First, I added the anchor lining using the laser cut parts and strip. Next, I did the fairing cap, using the laser cut hance pieces, strip wood for the quarter deck pieces and for the temporary waist pieces, and pieces cut from cedar sheet for the bow pieces. After all those pieces were in place, I completed the fairing of the inner bulwarks. This was tedious, but not as bad as it might have been , since I had done a good deal of the fairing before.

 

Now, it's time to dig in and line off the lower hull and do the planking, a formidable looking task.

That looks very good Bob.   You are certainly moving along.  I might point out a possible issue however.   The sheer at the the stern is a bit high in relation to the top of the transom.  I am not sure if your planking run just slopes up too much for the last 5 or 6 inches of the run or if your transom fillers were placed too low.  Probably a little bit of both.  You might want to tweak both at some point.  This will probably affect how your qgalleries will end up as well as the railings atop the quarter deck.  Check out the relationship between the two in the photo below.

Thanks so much Rusty, Chuck and the "likes".

 

Chuck, I appreciate the "heads up". I think that I will wait to do any tweaking until somewhat later, when I can see more clearly what needs to be done to make everything fit properly.

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.
