Hi Ed, Thanks for you encouragement. They are spools from embroidery thread cobbs. I own and run a commercial embroidery company, so am always trying to find a use for things that are thrown away. I also use "blunt" (old) needles to secure a lot of the work, they are very strong, thin and leave very little trace of a hole. Best regards

G'day Donny, nice clean build, is she single or double planked, I built the Construto HMS Victory and they included wood for second planking but I didnt need it, best regards John.

Hi John, It was supplied with a double plank option. I chose to keep it to the orginal only. Lovely challenge. Thanks for your interest. All of the best, Donny

Hello Donny,thanks for reply,the Admiral had an inkling that was what they were,recycling the way to go,as for the needles,I saw a thread on MSW whereas somebody made rigging tools from used ones,ie cut off the eye half way making different types of,hooks some were bent others flattened and attached to slim wooden handles etc,maybe your doing that already.But to say again you do nice work,keep posting.Edwin

Getting ready to seal the hull and decking, using a clear poly-eurethane wood varnish. I prefer my models finished in natural wood.

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.
