Update

Here another small update. A while ago I did some work on the cannon's. I almost completed half of the cannons, but I saw that I hadn't posted the photo's of it yet. So here they are:

Nick,

The more I see of your model, the more I like your approach to it. I'm sweating out the gun door placements, but you have aready gotten them nicely framed. This even includes the captain's windows. Wow! Your cannons are going to look great on that deck.

Update

Hello everyone,

here is the update some of you have been waiting for. Last 3 weeks have been a holiday for me. No school means a lot of moddeling. But I have to work also to get some money. But I managed to do some big things to my ship. I finished the last things I wanted to do with the ship before planking, like making a door to the captain's cabin.  :D

 

And then finally there was the day where I began planking. Below are the results of the first planking. I haven't sanded it all, so it's not smooth yet. I did also saw out the gun ports already and planked the back of the ship. I have to finish the windows yet.

Here are the pictures:

Nick,

 

You've been busy, indeed! Your gunports look great, as well as the captain's cabin. And a door! Very cool.

Hello everyone,

Here is finally another update I know some of you have been waiting for. I only did some work on the planking. Altough I am pretty satisfied with the result there are some mistakes. But I learn from them!

Here are the photo's!:

You will se that I removed the doors to the captain's cabin. I did this because I was not pleased with it and want to remake it. I also did some modification to the stern of the ship as you will see below:

Good to hear Sjors! And sometimes modeling has to be put away for a while to do other (sometimes more important) things. 

 

Update

An big update. The planking is finally done. It took me a while to finish but I'm very happy with the result. Keep in mind, a lot of sanding has to be done yet and some other things at the stern.

But here are the photo's:

Thank you guys for the kind words! I have done some big work on the ship. Because I will be trying to make my ship look like the replica in Rochefort I decided to first sand it very smooth and than to paint it white. This is the result so far (keep in mind, other colours have yet to be painted and the windows and gun ports have to be sanded again):

Hi Everyone,

 

It's been a while (again). I'm sorry for that, but I started my new study at the univerity of Rotterdam Mainport, so I couldn't do a lot. But unfortunatly I had to stop this study. The reason is personal. But this gave me some time to do some moddeling again.

 

And I started just where we left off last time. 

 

I wasn't quit saticfied about the result of the 1st planking. So I decided to add a second planking. Besides that I finished the construction of the ship, underdeks as well as upperdeks. And here are finally some pictures again;

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.
