scratch model of a half hull

Recommended Posts

hello from Stony Brook Long Island NY.

I'm an a woodworker that would like to make something simple and relaxing. Plenty of time on my hands with the Covid-19 lock down.

I'd like to try a half hull of something like a cat boat from scratch. I'm looking for books and advice on the subject. Thanks

Hello Crow and welcome to MSW. There are a few half-hull models in the forums, you might want to check out the excellent Half-Hull Planking project, a planking tutorial put together by tlevine.

Search 'half hull' in this forum:




... and you will see there are a few build logs of the project.

Whatever you decide to model, this is a good place to hang out.

Hi Crow, new here myself. I've built a couple of planked half models, both lapstrake, planked on molds with stringers backing the laps. My intro shows pics of a couple. It may not be what you're looking for, but I plan to retro-post those projects in the coming days, as I work myself on some new model projects.

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.
