      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)

      THE RULES

       

      *“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.

  1. Hi justsarow,

     

    This is Donald Harris,  I see in your listed builds that you built the Constructo " Elidir.  I have an Elidir kit ......with no assembly manual ..... just the plans ....... I have missing parts ( I bought on auction).   Got with OEM ..... Diset  " Louise"  should be the same.     They changed materials list numbers plans and list.  So it's a wash.  Wondering if your have a copy of materials list and plans to help a fellow  Texan  out?  I live in San Antonio now;  but live in Houston over 30 yrs.   Came to S.A.  for better Medical Care ...... I'm a Disabled Vietnam Combat Veteran,  and got feed up with Houston V.A.     Thank you for your time, patience and consideration.

      Hey Donald,

      I’m afraid I don’t have the material/parts list or the instruction manual. 

       

      All I have is the main plan sheet.

      I appreciate your feedback and thanks for your plans ......  I guess I'm going to  "Wing It"    which ....  with my messing-up along the way .....  I should learn something new.  My grandpa used to say to me:  " If your not messing up your, not learning anything ".    Thought I might the easy way...... but I think that's one of the reasons I like ship modeling ....  because it's not easy at times ..... and you learn to create methods of construction, jigs, and use to learn different techniques.  Thanks again for your time and consideration.
