  1. Pat, I asked a friend of mine (seriously into plastic kit modelling) about the ship's wheel brass problem to see if he has any clue about replicating brass. His suggestion is to create a self adhesive vinyl mask using a silhouette cutter or other computer controlled cutter, spray the plates on using Mr. Surfacer and then a brass paint. The reservation being that the detail may be too small for a cutting head to work properly?
  2. Hello there Mr Banyan. Your build is coming along very nicely indeed. I am back on deck and about to start some deck planking. If I am half as good as yourself I'll be happy. Marty.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
