USF Confederacy by Augie & Moonbug - Model Shipways - 1:64 - Finished

Recommended Posts

There's a little M.C. Escher in the first two photos the way the posts line up. I had to focus a bit. Very nice work Augie.

You got me with that one Dave.  I wasn't sure if I should be happy or get out the chain saw.  I'll settle for a smile.

The heavy lifting on the bow section has been completed with the installation of all the hanging/ lodging knees and carlings.  In addition, the inboard planking has been completed:

Next up is the completion of the inboard planking on the quarterdeck so that we can get to putting some rails on this lady.

Well, I have to add to all the comments about your superb workmanship.  This is one of those times when 'likes' are not enough.

Well done, a standard for the rest of us to strive for.

Cheers.

Thanks to all for looking in.  

 

Managed to make some progress.  The inner bulwark planking on the quarterdeck has been completed.

Now we'll concentrate on getting the rails on all around.

 

Hope everyone is ready for the (long awaited) change of seasons. Here, in the Northern Hemisphere, it means a decrease in shop time as the great outdoors beckons.  But I hope you all have had a healthy and productive winter 'building season'.

Augie,

 

I am still amazed, what you are doing and the way you are presenting this log will surely help everyone who will build Confederacy. Certainly me, once I get to her. :)

She looks great Augie! Nice, clean, square planking around all those gun-ports. 

 

Cheers

She's looking superb, Augie.

 

Here in Sydney, the onset of winter will mean that we get slightly shorter days and, if the weather gets really cold, the minimum daily temperature might very briefly get down to zero! :)

It has taken me a little while to get through all the pages of this build.  But once again Augie, you inspire me to build more.  I am really enjoying watching this build now that I am caught up.

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.
