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.

Another way to make wind filled sails is when you get the sails mounted on the arms and on the masts - take an electriv fan and blow it on the sails to make them billow out, and then spray a mixture of white glue and water on the sails while the fan is blowing, when the glue mixteur drys, it will leave the sails billowed out. Another way is to insert bendable wire in the edges of the sails when you sew them together - when they are mounted on the ship, you can bend the wire ti make the sails look billowed - Good Luck !!!!
