HMS Bellona by bill24 - Corel

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am new to Model Ship World and to model boat building. I received this kit as a gift a few years ago.

I started the kit but my work got in the way of the build, anyway to cut a very long story short, I have now picked her up again and restarted the build.

whilst doing a little research on boat building I came across this site and in particular Harlequins log of the build of the very same boat.

 

so - here I am, I will post photos of my attempt to build this beautiful ship as I go along

 

also, sorry for not understanding the log convention, I have deleted the photo from Harlequins log - sorry Harlequin

no problem bill24, no need to apologise, it is sometimes very useful to post a pic on someone elses build log. Anyway for a first attempt at a ship build you seem to be progressing very nicely.

thanks Harlequin

 

I have now resolved the problem at the stern with planks "clinkering". removed offending planks and made slight alterations to the last two bulkheads and all is now well

First planking now complete. A little tidying up at the stern required to ensure 2nd planking lies correctly is required.

I am going to mark the remaining gun ports next and fix the transom after a little dressing to ensure a good fit

Photos of the quarter galley, I think I am nearly there, a little more dressing and I think they will be okay.

The gun ports need a little attention yet to finish off and ensure they are square and consistent size, any major problems I can correct either now or later with the final planking.

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.
