HMS Pickle by mtbediz - 1:40

Recommended Posts

Great start mtbediz. The bulkheads and filler look solid as a rock. Can you tell us if you are using existing plans or your own drawing? And the scale?

Is looking very nice.

What is the wood you are using for the planking?

Thank you GL. It is lime tree.

Will you take out the mails of the planks afterwards?

No, I will not take out the nails. Normally lower hull of Pickle (below water line) is covered with copper but i am planning to cover with mahogany veneer. Upper hull will be painted. So, nails will not be visible.

Really coming along nicely - like the lots of drop planks !

Are you sure your nails contain no iron if you are leaving them - othererwise may get some rust later in life.

I had a nasty surprise a while ago with some nails that I discovered were only brass coloured steel and th moisture from the next layer adhesive did them no good at all

Thank you. I have learnt one more thing, i didn't know this. I am not sure if they are pure brass. I will never leave nails on my next builds anymore.

I made the model carrier and I have started deck planking. I am using 1,5x6 mm of walnut strips on the deck. Because of long distance; I added extra plank supports between bulkheads 4-5, 5-6 and 6-7.

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.
