    Funny How Time Slips Away - Al Green
  2. a bit of a disapointment I gather ...
  3. Yep, I know the site. Very informative, got it bookmarked somewhere.
  4. Thought you would ... spread it out ... Another holiday!? It seems I keep on postponing any advance on Seydlitz. Just finished a 60 hr working week. My hands seem to miss the immovability require for the job at present. Very frustrating, as I would like to finish the RCN Destroyer too.
  5. did you use the epoxy yet? I just wondered what would happen if you added the sand on top. Does epoxy stick to clinging film/citchen wrap, if not you could put that between the epoxy and the sand ... just a thought ...
  6. I'm not much in favour of the cans, although practical, it is hard to regulate airflow. When the can cools down, it will diminish, same goes for the pressure when nearing the final stotage of its contents. The cooling you can only partly avoid by putting it in warm water, but it has the tendency to float, and seems to popup at the worst of times ...
  7. not much to like about that ... I hope it will be a relative easy fix/repair
  8. So you can turn on the lights The rigging is just an additional mast. Instead of one you do two
  9. Looks quite good (better than I could make it). Your assesment on the glossy floor sounds right to me. I see you changed the hinges ... a big improvement
  10. Well done! Hollow brass really is a bitch to bend. I might have tried copper and fabricated a jig like the pipe tool a plumber uses
  11. Is that what you're doin' ... I thought you to be a porthole piercer
  12. When possible I painted them on the sprue, or if I'm lucky, the attachement holes for the cables to the davits. On BlueTack I find it a pain: Needs painting twice to cover primer, and after that for the colour. Next time I'll try stickin' a sewing pin in the bottom

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.
