Hello fellow modellers 02/04/2018
We would like to present on our Facebook page more regularly pictures of your work. If you would like to participate, and we would appreciate that as we wanna promote the forum this way, please visit https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/17711-your-images-for-our-facebook-page/
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.

JpR62 posted a topic in Painting, finishing and weathering products and techniquesI found on facebook a photo album of a beautiful Portuguese fishing boats at the 1:16 scale. I join some of the photos founded on this album. My question: do you know which techniques were used to obtain this result ? For those who are interested, you can consult the complete album at the following address : https://www.facebook.com/pg/Shipmodels.ua/photos/?tab=album&album_id=571832076319604 The team that build this model is an Ukrainian company.
London is really a wonderful city. You will have great time. If you also like military aircraft, you can visit the RAF Museum in London. The Royal Air Force Museum's London site at Hendon is vast and contains a lot of airplanes.
Hello, I'm new on the world of the model ship building. As many of You, I have built some plastic ship models when I was a youth (Santa Maria, Soleil Royal, USS Constitution, Titanic,...) When I was a member of a modelling club, I discovered the world of the military figures and turn my interest into these part of the world modeling. I'm always painting figure miniatures. I recently found this forum and his wonderful build logs. As I never lost my interest for the model ships, I decide to try to build my first boat. I'm actually working on the Armed Virginia Sloop from Model Shipways. Sorry if my English is not perfect but I live in the french part of Switzerland. We have mountains but also the larger lake of Europe (the Leman) on which sail very nice barges. I hope to share soon my work through a build log. Have a nice day. Jean-Paul
