      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)



      *“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.

    Hi Mark, As I've said before just superb, something to be proud of. This has to be something of a record, two Royal Williams finished and on show within a week of each other, I doubt that it will happen again. Ken

    This is the Royal William built from a Euromodel Kit. I started in April this year, nine months of intensive, but enjoyable building. There is a detailed build log here on MSW. This could not have been built without the help of MSW members who I owe my thanks Ken
  6. My Royal William is getting ever closer to completion, probably in time for Xmas. It will be obvious to my family ( and Santa ) by the size of my stocking what I want for Christmas. Ken
  7. Hi Mike, I've shown a few pictures of how I mounted my Royal William, I think that they are self explanatory. Like yourself the stand was a very late addition. The Royal William is a very heavy model and this stand has proved to be very strong and stable, it is also quite easy to lift off. Ken
  8. Hello Everyone, My Royal William is coming along well. I've just finished the dead eye to shrouds lanyards, the build has taken me only six months to get this far. Ken
  9. Hi Paul, thanks for that. If you visit my Royal William log you'll see quite a few pictures of my home area. Ken
  10. Hi, Here's a shot of the sea front of my hometown, Near Liverpool, UK. I was out walking on the causeway when this storm rapidly advanced. It was pleasant when I set out, there was no shelter and I didn't get back to my car before the storm broke, got very wet. Ken

    A work of art, incredible. You should feel proud of creating such a model. Ken
