      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.

Makes me think about finishing the display case soon and finally getting back to the model! :)

That's a nice bunch of great pictures with allready lot's of likes on Facebook. Thanks for your input!

 

One thing I would like, if possible the pictures should have a minimum size of 1280px width. I know these are cryptic numbers for some people, in other words, "bigger" would be better: -)

 

cheers,

 

Dirk

John:

Thanks for the photos.  It would be great if you showed an overall of each in their case so people can see just how small the displays actually are. 

Take care,

Kurt

My first pure scratch build.... La Couronne

aalacronne.JPG.6c0e46c78d152a55e3cc07f7453b307d.JPG

This scratch built Syren was one of the first three prototypes for this model.

This is my scratch built Sovereign of The Seas with more than a thousand hours in the dozens of carvings.

@SawdustDave Thanks, unfortunately the pictures of the "La Couronne" and "Sovereign of The Seas " are way to small :-(

I had the same concern Dirk.  I can either remove those shots or replace them with close-ups of the carvings.

Your call sir.

PS - I love this page.  

Thank you.

Dave

Naa don't remove them here, I find them just to small for Facebook but they are still great shots. But go on and add close-up of the carvings, I like that :-) Thanks Dave!

Carvings.....

From the beginning, with the La Couronne's stern, I have loved the challenge of carving wood.....

carving1.JPG.fd9456d4cdf8b985d5cc39b72dd767ca.JPG

Here's the beak figure of the Confederacy.... perhaps my favorite carving of all.  My friends named the warrior "Bluto"

carving2.JPG.aa808b9f7c7a7fd4923ccf00810d94b6.JPG

Clearly, the Sovereign of the Seas is all about her carvings.  I spent a couple-a-hundred hours on her stern panels....

carving3.thumb.jpg.1617e09f72c9c9b9e0aa414696d7cf47.jpg

Finally, here's the USS Constitution's stern eagle .....

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.
