      An Incentive to Start A Build Log - New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      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.

    Many thanks for your comment Peter. Thanasis
  6. It's a scratch built model at 1:24 scale, of a small double ended vessel (Tserniki type) which used to be built in Lesbos Island. It was used for coastal trading, often rigged with a sacoleva sail (sprit sail).
  7. Thanks Gd, I had already understood that (la police de la mer ... les pirates...piece de canon...) . I was interested only for the rigging of the boat and it seems that in Gr. naval history, two or more different boats used to be called Belou(s)... Thx
  8. Many thanks Gt. So in brief it describes a three masted boat with lug sails. Be well. Thx
  9. I would much appreciate if someone make me a favor and translate the below text. I would like to have an accurate translation since every word counts... Many thanks

    Many thanks Nils. I appreciate your comments on all of my models. Thx
  14. The model represents a Gr. traditional vessel known as "Tserniki of Mykonos Isl.” rigged with a "Half-lateen sail". It's was a version of standard "Tserniki" vessel but with a raised stern post. The "half-lateen sail” rigging for some ones was considered also as "Sakoleva” rigging, although there are differences. It was a small merchant and fishing vessel at early of 19 century and can be seen in old photos of Cyclades Islands. Scale: 1:24 - Length: 60cm - Width:13 cm - Height: 55 cm
