Scratch builder for a long time.....various models from rc planes to boats.....as all my models are working, they are not pristine but fully functional.....my next project is a 1:30th  Golden Hind ......marinated....looking for other scratchbuilder who have installed a pair of torks in the bilge that is wet......the idea is basically a tunnel hull....anyhow food for thought......this probably horrify the purists......

Where are you based, Gordon? As you can see I'm in Ballarat, but here are a lot of Aussie members - you might even have one near you!

 

Your idea for the Golden Hind is interesting, to say the least . . . :D. But nobody's going to rain on your parade and hey, maybe we'll learn something from your experimentation.

Hi Steven

I am in Woodend with a son in Ballarat who we visit regularly.....well until the virus....I may have ventured into the wrong paddock for my answers......I build different.......as in nothing our group would try.....paddlers, droghers, stern wheelers, springer tugs, air boats, a 4ft schooner and a lobster smack using the same hull design, Vic Smeeds airboats, RG65s,Harman airboats schwimmwagen and currently under construction a 24in bilge keel sail boat.

The Golden Hind is an idea that i have tossed around but without any sails out, just some form of thrust hidden within the bilge, venting out through underwater louvers across the rudder. The motors will be wired to rudder input to assist rudder.......anyhow cool bananas....we are in a over 50s resort in Woodend and it will have quite a large lake. Not big enough to be able to sail a square rigged as tacking takes up so much room....

Regards

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.
