    Try calling them, they never seem to respond to emails. I have much better luck when I call.

  3. Alright, finally got the keel finished. I just pretty much followed along with the instructions. I installed the simulated bolts and sanded off the laser char. After that, I ended up gluing the two inner keel pieces together first and then glued them to the keel. I made sure I had a nice flat surface and aligned the bottom edges along a angle block. It worked out nice. No adjustments were needed for the inner keel pieces, everything fit perfectly, no wiggle room on either end. I used the little 1/32 jigs as seen in other build logs to make sure I had the 1/32 rabbet. I gave it a coat of wipe-on poly and on to the next step.

  5. I like the unpainted bulkhead too, gives it some nice contrast.
  6. The ship is coming to life! Pun intended. Its looking very good.
  7. I like the stand. Its a lot better than anything I could do. I'd be interested.
  8. Question on adding the the two notched inner stern keel pieces: Is it best to glue the two pieces together first before gluing them to the keel?

  10. The jig is a great idea. I think I'll do the same.

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.
