  1. Nice work! FYI: The link in post #3 (2 page drawing) appears to be broken. Richard
  2. Nicely Done! I noticed in some of your other projects you mention finishing with an acrylic case. Can you tell us your source? Richard
  3. Your side project really turned out nice! Richard
  4. Interesting project. Staudt's plans show 2 cannon sizes. Are you turning both, or only the longer version? I like the choice of wood. Nice work! Richard
  5. Thanks for sharing! I wonder if there is a chance to purchase cannons for those of us without a lathe? Richard
  6. The keg is a nice touch. Care to share how you made it? Richard
  7. That would correspond to 14AWG wire size. But, as you said, the toothpicks work easily! Thanks for the feedback. Richard
  8. I was going to use appropriate size black annealed wire. But your treenails would work too. Thanks, Richard
  9. Nice work! Curious as to what you are using to simulate the bolts. Richard
  10. Dave, I agree with Svein on the simulated treenails. For those of us treenailing, what is the size of the treenail? Richard
  11. I must thank you for inspiring me to continue with my build which I had just started when I stumbled across your log. Richard

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.
