      An Incentive to Start A Build Log - New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      An Incentive for Starting a Build Log

      The NRG’s Generic East Coast Oyster Sharpie plan sets have been selling out – we had to reorder prints 2X already.

      BUT nobody has started a build log yet.  As an incentive we have decided to reward the first three (3) MSW / NRG members who purchase the plans and start and continue* actual build logs** from the plans. 

      The build logs should be started in the scratch built forum and labeled with Generic Sharpie – by “your ID”.  When we have six or more build logs up and running we will set up a group build area for the Generic Sharpie build logs.

      The winners will be able to pick any one of the prizes listed below:

      Free registration for one day at 2018 or 2019 NRG Conference                  ($145 value)

      Shop Notes 1 and 2 set                                                                         ($60 value)

      Nautical Research Journal – all content set                                              ($145 value)

      4 CD's or 1 flash drive         

      Continental Galley Washington Plan set                                                    ($65 value)

      1 year NRG membership or extension                                                      ($50 - $62 value)

      THE RULES

       

      *“Continue” means that multiple posts containing build log content must be made for a minimum of 30 days after the initial post.  Logs will be tracked by starting date and the first 3 that have continued for 30 days following their initial post will be declared the winners.

      **Note the words “actual build logs” – no fair showing a few pieces of wood and going no further just to win. 

       

      The NRG has a new set of plans available for purchase with a free 200+ page full-color monograph .  Check the NAUTICAL RESEARCH GUILD NEWS forum below for details.  This plan set is developed for the first time scratch builder with limited tools and experience.  All materials are standard strip stock available from hobby wood suppliers.  However, it is also a great project for the more experienced builder looking for a smaller project to take a break from the bigger builds.  Remember MSW Members who provide us their real name are considered members for the discounted price.  An email or call to the office before you order with your real name and MSW user name before you order is needed for the discount code.

    Is there a link to the build log of this, I want to pinch some sail build / fit details, love the furled sails as they would be with run out canons battle ready. Beautifully built model she is a credit tool you
  2. Help. I was lead to beleive that when the canons are run out for battle as the image shows the lower sails are furled to prevent canon balls shredding them. But the image contradicts this theory. Now was this an artist licence to paint the HMS Victory in this way, or are our beliefs questionable. I ask as I am creeping upto this stage. I considered leaving her bereft of sails but why would canons be run out when there are no sails on her. This image was from a documentary : Shipwrecks Britains Sunken past

    Beautiful, really beautiful, this is my planned next kit, she is different, is this the best kit to represent this model, I ask as I have not looked into which one to aim for yet.

    Beautiful build.... really love this ship and one day I too will have her sat in my dock I have to confess, I don't often wonder about the MSW site very often. This is not because I'm busy on my own site but purely because whenever I decide to wander about I realize that I am far in the wake of the models that this hobby's modelers produce.... but time to time I wander and I generally look at those who looked or poster a like on mine. This is a beautiful model and I know where to come when one day I build her.
