Simply beautiful and at 1/48th scale. The detail will be so nice I'm sure.

Wow Tom, that looks fantastic. Having stepped frames for the clinker planking takes it to another level. I wonder hou you insure all the frames line up perfectly for the runs of planks?

I'm guessing this is to be on a whole new level of complexity for a kit.  Looks promising.

Wow, the only thing more impressive than the CAD model (which is sooo cool), is the wooden model.  That framing jig is awesome, great way to use the computer modeling. Congrats.

I designed these structures to ensure the accuracy of installation. Of course, there will be some installation errors when we make them, so I will provide key dimensions and 1:1 drawings

This is coming along nicely (and quickly too). 

What is your development time on this, so far?

This is a very different ship build. It looks complex but I think I would be able to do it. I would be interested in trying to build it.

About two weeks ago I got your Temple build kit. Very complex ,but if I take it slowly I should be able to do this.

Thank You very much for what your developing.

I don't have a specific schedule, but I expect I will finish the hull part in two months, plus the mast and sail. It will take one month too.

We have a lot of time at home to challenge difficult models

Today, I found such a structure when I was making it. Because it's written by dotted lines, I can't see it clearly. It seems to be a ballast tank.I tried to draw it.

Is anyone familiar with this structure? I found this structure in the cargo hold for the first time, so there are many questions.Who can answer, I will be very grateful

This is also one of your kits? :omg:

That's unusual. I presume those red walls are touching the planking all the way along?

Well the plans say it’s a “platform over the ballast “ so I think it’s the framing for a deck - should be covered with deck planks? Is this going to be a kit available soon?

It is not a tank! It is a cross between a deck and a bridge. I suspect that the boards covering the frame are inset to the beams and removable.

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.
