Thanks guys for the kind remarks and all the likes! Nice to have you guys looking in, Y.T. - I didn’t think I was working that fast, I think a lot of it is the great design, it assembles very accurately and I haven’t had to spend days (or weeks) sanding the bulkheads or fairing everything together. I did use a few shim strips on a couple bulkheads and basically pre faired the first few and last couple of bulkheads just like the manual shows and it comes out great - so kudos to Chris Watton and Amati for implementing his great design. Makes me excited looking forward to even better designs coming from Mr. Watton with his new company - Vanguard Models

So I think I’m done with decks for a while, I installed and planked the lower aft decks, I had to temp install the side ply pieces to get the outline of those to fit in between the gallery platforms. Pretty tedious with small planks and getting my hands between all the bulkhead uprights. Next up are some internal cabin bulkheads that I am considering remaking with Pear - especially the very aft gallery/ stern piece. We’ll see...

The kit suggests painting the aft cabin bulkheads a dark brown but I planked them instead using the Tanganika deck planks that the kit provides. I like that there is a little bit of detail - the whipstaff platform and companionway and ladders. Some nice photoetch goodies for the bulkhead doors etc....

More progress this weekend, I had to temporarily pin all the ply sheets in place, check fit and mark where it all mates and install some cannon carriages where they go behind the ply bulwarks, Two of them required fudging a front truck as they fit right up against the bulkhead. On those two I cut a truck in half and glued it under the carriage to keep it square but still fit against the bulkhead.

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.
