  1. I've seen models where they were run out on one side and left behind closed gun ports on the other.
  2. Bob, Thanks for your continued detailed build log - i've taken a break from my PdN so I can reference your log later Joshua
  3. I've used Sharpie Markers to paint things black with happy results.
  4. it's a shame all these postings aren't making it to the correct thread of "So where do you do yours" even though I'm guilty of it myself!
  5. Actually, I spend probably half my time cleaning and putting things away because I get anxious when things aren't organized and clean. lol
  6. I work mostly out of my garage but at times will gather small projects to work on a fold out table in the living room so I can be close to my wife and daughter. The first pic is a little older than the subsequent two. Here's the garage. Best, Joshua
  7. Zappto, Any chance we could see the ship illuminated in a dimmer lit room? It'd be awesome to see how much of her is lit up now. I'm excited to see this finished!~ Joshua
  8. Bob, I hear ya with the struggles of this model. I've actually started to crutch off of a Syren kit someone had started but didn't finish in both parts and instructions. Both ships are American built 2 masted vessels of similar size of the same period and the kits were the same scale. Chuck's instructions have a lot more pictures and details especially around rigging the bow spirit, etc. I've given up on the instructions that came with the PDN and am relying heavily on Chappelle's drawings and Reed's book. The Syren came with photo etched parts for gun ports that I plan to use. The Syren's instructions are on the MicroMark website for download in PDF. Josh
  9. Great progress so far! I have this kit as well and I also had the same reaction to the cut-away section in the hull. I also plan to just fully plank it solid. Joshua
  10. I disabled the messenger out of curiosity and now I can't seem to find a way to turn it back on? Any thoughts? thanks Joshua

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.
