Super detailing the cutter Sherbourne, a guide to building the Caldercraft kit, by George Bandurek.

I published this book in 2011 and at the time there were several threads that showed photos of my build. These are not now easily accessible so I have resurrected some of the information. The attached pdf files are extracts from the book that show how I tackled some of the topics.

I would welcome any comments on these extracts, or if you have bought a copy of the book (thank you!) then please post a review.

More information on the book is available on my website www.grbsolutions.co.uk. Buy direct and you will get a signed copy!

Great to see you re-posting these, George. Thanks very much -- they really will be a help to the Sherbourne (and other) builders!

George,

 

Probably the best tutorials I have seen to date including other sites and u-tube. Simple, plain, excellent photos, so even an idiot like myself would understand. Wish I had this when I started my HMS Victory build in 2013.

 

Placing this one in favorites. Very nice.

Very nice book! Very useful and also a bit af a collectors item ;) I'm going to use it building the Lady Nelson, which is a kind of similar cutter. I first have to finish the Swift 1805, though.

The cannon technique is REALLY clever, hats off to you! I'm totally going to use this method in the future. I'm too cheep to mail order decent cannons and the only time I had to replicate cannons was on my cutter Le Renard. The kit came with carronnades only and I wanted two long gun bow chasers, which I carved. Had I known this clever technique of yours I would have had an easier time of it AND the two guns would match better than they do now. Thanks for the tip!

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.
