I love it Augie. Because of the fine detail you put into her your build looks bigger than it actually is: I have to remind myself of the scale here.

Very nicely done Augie, you have got the deck clamps perfect where the cabin partition line on the false deck is right under the deck clamp cutout. Now are you gonna spill the beans on what wood you are going to use for the Floor??

Augie, I'm happy to see you back at it. The interior looks very nice so far. If you'd be so kind as to put off fishing and the great outdoors for a while longer and get more done, we'd all appreciate it.  :P  :P  :P  :P  :P

come on Augie.............cannons aren't mind numbing.........they're a work of art!  sure they are a  'mass production' aspect,  but it's rather fun to add on the little baubles  :)     now,  if you really want to drive yourself to new fits of madness........plank the deck!   I'm with Ben on this........It will be very nice to see how the deck compliments the bulwarks,  and make Ben smile at the same time  :)

Just a quick update.  The inner bulwarks have been painted except in the Great Cabin where they were stained. 

 

I used 10 coats of diluted MS Bulwark Red somewhat modified to attain the red I was looking for (same as the gun ports).  A coat of flat acrylic lacquer was applied as well:

We'll now be turning our attention to the deck......but not before some (long delayed) domestic chores and a sortie to the hallowed fishing grounds are completed.  I shall return with ....... ???????

Beware of the fish.. bring the moose home.  After he/she gets done with the yard, there won't be any chores.... until the moose leaves, that is. ;)

 

Planking and painting are top-notch...

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.
