      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.

  1. Hello fellow modellers, we would like to present on our Facebook page more regularly pictures of your work. If you would like to participate, please post 2-3 of your favorite pictures here in this thread. Gladly from different projects. It is NOT a photo competition or anything else, but it should be reasonable pictures in reasonable resolution. Please also give us the explicit right to watermark these images and post them on facebook! Lookin' forward to your great images :-) Our facebookpage: https://www.facebook.com/ModelShipWorld/ Thanks, Dirk
  2. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    Thanks for all these great images! I will do the next batch on facebook soon. :-) cheers, Dirk
  3. Hello Barbara, that is a great build by your father. If you need support from german modellers please check this german froum too: http://www.segelschiffsmodellbau.com cheers, Dirk
  4. Please have in mind that a pdf is just a "container". What is in that container can be a pixel (jpg, png) or a vector based image (svg, eps) or or or ... thats a major difference! Turbocad can read eps ... a pdf can be opened in, as example, affinity designer and then exported as eps. That would make sense if it is a vector based image. cheers, Dirk
  5. Are you clicking directly on the arrow? Unfortunately it is absolute stupid, you have to click UNDER the arrow, then it works, up and down. Dirk
  6. Pat, there is nothing to do and/or investigate on our side. These might be local timing issues. A website/Forum is a very complex code thing nowadays and sometimes have hickups on local machines what is not unusual. Simply make sure you post what you wanted to post and if a second click is needed then a second click is needed. ;-) cheers, Dirk
  7. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    These are nice builds but same for you Popeye, I need the pictures bigger :-( cheers, Dirk
  8. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    You should see a facebook icon at the top and bottom of every page here :-) Anyway here we go: https://www.facebook.com/ModelShipWorld/ cheers, Dirk
  9. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    Naa don't remove them here, I find them just to small for Facebook but they are still great shots. But go on and add close-up of the carvings, I like that :-) Thanks Dave! Dirk
  10. I find this attitude of yours to be very inappropriate for a public forum. If you have concerns, address them privately. It really isn't a great idea in telling people what to do. If this message was still there on February 7th, it was because it was still VALID. A reboot with fsck can't be estimated how long it will take or when the hoster will do the reboot at all, because I CAN' T REMOTE DO IT. And I find it extremely unpleasant that I should justify myself here. I can send you my invoice for a lost day as a freelancer. Dirk
  11. > I too encountered all day on the 7th the problems noted above. In the future, these messages should have a more accurate time stamp to include date, time and time zone, and duration (over time) of the upgrade, so we can be better informed. This message WAS ACCURATE, do you really think I can tell you in all different timezones exactly what will when happend? Don't make me angry spending HOURS of MY time to analyze and fix the damn issues by posting messages like this. I lost a whole working day! I'm freelancer ... now calculate. And it was NOT an upgrade, it were unexpected server crashes! @Mark: It is not only Intel it is almost every processor in the world using the typical "speculative execution" (an optimization technique where a computer system performs some task that may not be needed. Work is done before it is known whether it is actually needed, so as to prevent a delay that would have to be incurred by doing the work after it is known that it is needed. If it turns out the work was not needed after all, most changes made by the work are reverted and the results are ignored.) And it is a damn super mega disaster! Our Kernel is up to date so the AT THE MOMENT actual microcode is loaded. Dirk PS: Sorry guys, but that makes me angry atm .. don't take it personal though ...
  12. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    @SawdustDave Thanks, unfortunately the pictures of the "La Couronne" and "Sovereign of The Seas " are way to small :-( cheers, Dirk
  13. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    That's a nice bunch of great pictures with allready lot's of likes on Facebook. Thanks for your input! One thing I would like, if possible the pictures should have a minimum size of 1280px width. I know these are cryptic numbers for some people, in other words, "bigger" would be better: -) cheers, Dirk
  14. Hey Piet, everything is there, nothing is deleted :-) https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/1254-hr-ms-o-19-by-piet-1939-1945-scale-150-submarine-royal-navy-netherlands/ Your signature links were wrong. I reseted all links to the main page as startover to correct them. You can find your topics always here too: https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/profile/1399-piet/&do=content&type=forums_topic&change_section=1 cheers, Dirk
  15. Ok, I had 62.0.3202.94 before, updated and now have the "problem" too, so it is a verified Chrome issue. Nothing we can do though ... (I only wonder why my Chrome did not update automatically ... ) cheers, Dirk
  16. Win 10/Chrome and no problem. Maybe we need to dig which extensions are used ... There where def no changes here within the last weeks. Dirk
  17. It seems to be related to the css "order"-property what would explain it for very old browsers like IE10 or older versions of other browsers but it is strange indeed. IPS Default do not use this property though. Dirk PS: Please post always the exact versions you are using, e.g. "I'm using Chrome" is unfortunately not very helpful
  18. > I answered on a reaction by using the 'quote' option without any problem.... Can you for sure say how long that is ago? > Maybe some advise what is usual in such a case? I do the same, having all my texts and images saved locally. I would be very happy to see you restarting your log! :-) cheers, Dirk
  19. I made two more LAST changes now to avoid people not reading and deleting their own threads. Final deleting time is now 90 (NINTY!!) days after deletion AND as a test the bad button is RED now (in the uniform theme!) red like READ and THINK before pressing this no return button. cheers, Dirk PS: G.L. I'm really sorry for the loss of your buildlog, I talked to invision forums support member also if they could "do" something, or what might be went wrong... no success ... sorry again!
  20. Christian, don't get me wrong, but again, YOU made the mistake by NOT reading! There is no "normally", we decided to give users the option to delete their own threads for reasons. We also made the messages more clearly what unfortunately don't make sense if you don't READ them ;-) Please check this topic here too: cheers, Dirk
  21. I restored your thread. But I have to say it's a bit easy to say the "new sistem is very hard and has a lot of problems" (what is simply not true!) instead just to read what messages are telling you ;-) "Are you really sure? Please check what are you doing (e.g. deleting your whole thread)" cheers, Dirk
  22. Should be there again. That was very close to final deletion (3.11). Next time please tell us immediatly when things happend. cheers, Dirk
