I am building a 1 to 48 scale model of the Briganteen Leon with much of the interior visible I would like to leave off some of the hatch covers from the main hatch but I do not know where to stack the ones I remove.  If we imagine that they want to take a look see into the hold they might just remove 3 covers.  Would they stack them on top of the covers not removed or on the deck next to the hatch.  Silly question I know but i have no experience with these hatches.  Thanks

And sometimes they set a grating upright and tied a sailor to it for strokes from the cat as below.   That would be an interesting scene to model.

This is one of the more creative suggestions that I've seen.  Unfortunately, I have already selected my 'unusual' modelling task - a Norwegian Windmill Pump (see photo).  



For several years I was afraid I wouldn't be able to model this thing on Brigantine Leon because I was pretty sure that it would only have been installed after she had been cut down to a schooner rig.  Recently, however, I have learned that Leon was never cut down to a schooner rig and therefore she had the windmill pump as a brigantine.  I'm going to model it so that it can be removed and displayed along side the ship since it is pretty dramatic!.


Thanks for an excellent competing suggestion, though.

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.
