  1. Dave, Thanks for sharing, very informative and great workmanship, also great photography , keep up the good work, Ed
  2. I am also building the MS Rattlesnake but I am a bit behind you, I just finished the gun port framing, I can appreciate the quality of your work, she is looking real nice, your choice of colors is especially good, what brand of paint and what colors did you use, keep up the good work Ed
  3. paint job looks real good , especially like the stand, good luck with the remodel job, should be a big improvement when done
  4. Ron, I have followed your build since the beginning, I often reread the entire log as an inspiration and I always learn something new, I am so glad you have decided to continue, to create such a great model with so few tools is a testament to your craftsmanship and your problem solving abilities Ed
  5. Ron, I agree she is really shaping up, keep up the good work, and thanks for the tips Ed
  6. she sure is coming along , a shame about the substandard material, but you are doing a good job working around the isssue Ed
  7. you might want to check out RLB Oneida build log on this site under Kit Build Logs, although he too planked one side and left the other unplanked Ed
  8. Glad to see you back in the shop, I find this small model quite interesting, can't wait to see the finished product, just a quick question on the Vallejo paint, do you know how long you can keep it before it goes bad?
  9. I believe that is a misprint, most of the build logs on this ship use a 1/32" thick strip for the batten, the kit includes 1/32" x 3/32" strips for the upper planks and ceiling, perhaps this is where the mistake happened using the width instead of the thickness, they are what I used to check for fairing. The Rattlesnake makes a great build and when completed you are ready for just about any model. Good Luck with it Ed
  10. Rich, it's really looking good, I think it will be a fine addition to what is turning out to be a great ship!
  11. Great news, now on to more important things, onward and upward
  12. Hard to imagine the amount of prep work that goes into one of these builds, I have followed a couple of Lumberyard builds but they were from the kit, keep at it!

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.
