Looking good Jo

 

I have a love and great interest in these old working ships and the men and women that sailed on them and who's lives were so close linked to these ships and the sea for their livelyhood.  

 

This looks like it will be a beautiful model when done.  I have always wanted to try making sails.  When you fair the hull you will be really happy you took the extra time to beef up the bulkheads either with some scrap wood or filling in the areas with balsa as others have said.  Fairing the hull is tricky enough as it is and you can easily break the bulkheads as they are.  Don't ask me how I know this!

Hi Jo!! Getting caught up here. You have come a long way since I last stopped by. It looks like you solved your weak spot issue. Thinned epoxy or thin CA can solve many issues. Luies idea of gluing a couple of battens on with pva would have given you some additional insurance until you were ready to add in your additional structure.

Either way great job.

Hello Shipmates

 

Just a small update, I have glued the strips of wood round the inside of the bulwarks, I think this is the edge of the deck planking as they are on the same level.

 

Also this helps reinforces the weak spot at the stern, I also have two more strips of wood to be glued in that area also so it will make it more stronger.

Hello shipmates

 

I have just about finished sanding the balsa wood filler blocks on one side.

I have to say it seems like it has taken me months to just do one side when it was only a couple of days on and off.

 

Anyway I hope you all have a nice Christmas and a prosperous 2020.

Hope Santa brings you all some new kits and tools.

Hello all

 

Just a wee update, I decided to fill the bow part of the hull also as I cannot see that the planks will be secure by gluing them to a small area of the keel.

I have not finished sanding the stern filler blocks down yet as I am not sure if the planks finish each side of the keel or in the middle of the keel  HELP.

at the stern, the planks will meet on top of the keel stem.  usually,  Billing will supply rabbits for the stems....surprised that there aren't any for the bow,  in this case.   to make it easier to plank,  Billings supplies a curved piece that would fit over the stern area.   it would likely end where you inserted the balsa,  but leaving enough of a bulkhead lip,  that the planking can terminate on it.   it is possible that you can scratch make one of these parts.

 

for an example of this.....here is what I did on my build of the Progress.   very easy to make:

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.
