    Tweezers anyone

    Moab: I use Sally's also for many items. If there's no Sally's around, just use any beauty supply shop. Y.T.: This will get you started: https://www.sallybeauty.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-SA-Site/default/Search-Show?q=tweezers
  2. A quick search on "craft" (for Chris Craft) in the kit area might give you some ideas.

    Ship paintings

    It's great to hear that you recovered. Like others, I've had it and it's not a picnic. I love your paintings.
  4. Click on his name on the post (top left of post). It will take you to his profile. Up top is "MESSAGE" click it and sent the first message from there.
  5. Good to hear from you Dave and that you had good news.
  6. What Druxey said. Maybe add some "mud" from the spring rains to the piers for high water marks above the weed/algae.
  7. I do what Downer suggests. There are sanders with miter gauges (small sanders from places like MicroMark) but they seem to "eat" too much material.

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.
