  2. Absolutely fantastic Ed, arrows😀 only joking that was quite clear Regards Paul
  3. Great idea Keith, well done and my aren't you lucky being allowed onto the dining room table, I'm not even allowed to bring it inside the house, although I did sneak the rope walk in when it was really cold, to practise with Regards Paul
  4. Another option that may be of interest is David White in the AOTS Diana armament section shows the breeching rope lying over the cascable and a ring but says in the text, the ring is a grommet seized to the cascable, so similar to siggis photo but with a ring tied on to the button Regards Paul

    Pleasantly surprised at what??? Steven
  10. My hms Sirius model is in the same garage as the cheerful Hull and I have had no problems with cracking or shrinking, it has been out there for years now, even through our latest hottest summer for years, however each layer as I have been building from the orlop up has been coated in layers of Tung oil thinned with spirits for the first coat 50/50 I'm not sure if this is what's made the difference to this model or not Regards Paul
  11. I have liked that but don't if you know what I mean
  12. Very nicely done Keith, looking like a hull already Regards Paul
  13. Expansion can then become just as big a problem though as the shrinkage, my cheerful hull below after a year in the garage the wood is holly and was dry and seasoned but has obviously swollen after fitting and painting with watered down acrylic Regards Paul

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.
