  4. A Lesson Learned, Bass vs Box

    Harley, Chuck S is always correct he is in wonderful San Diego I am in the ugly Desert! Lol. in my old lost builds the topic of to blacken or not to blacken connons always ended with the words "bright and shiny natural brass connons only exist on models only and not real ships" and in order to be historically correct that gave me the will powered to blacken. however I have found that (depending on the build) to me there is nothing more fancy then a bright and shiny properly riged connon. your the Captain and your in control.

  11. Tools I can't live without 1 digital calipers, 2 long arm adjustable magnifying lamp, 3 stand for holding plans the calipers I use are not expensive ones as used for fine machining so I don't have to worry about dropping them and losing there fine calibration so I just use a simple Harbor Fright brand the magnifying lamp I use has a long adjustable spring loaded arm (4 feet long) with a bright neon circular light that has a 6 x magnifying glass in the center (5") simply clamps to work bench. the stand I use for holding the planes and notes is a aluminum I . V stand (as the ones used in hospitals) with the 3 rolling wheels, modified with simple wood dowels that adjust to size with simple small spring loaded clamps. Jay

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.
