      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.

Hello from spain to everybody

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody

 

My name is Javier Barón, I was born in 1948 and I live in Madrid, Spain. Unfortunately, I do not speak English fluently, although I am able to understand the texts written in your language.

 

Therefore, I use the Google translator and in advance I apologize for any errors that may be contained in my writings. I have been a modeller for many years and I am currently doing a series of miniatures of small work boats (I have just finished number 61 of the collection). The collection can be seen at barcosbaron.wordpress.com and although the texts are currently in Spanish, I have a nephew of mine who is bilingual busy translating them into English.

 

To complete my presentation I put some pictures of my latest work: a bisquine of Cancale in miniature (scale 1: 160).

 

If you find it interesting, I will publish some of the models in my collection in the gallery.

Beautiful work, Ravier.  I hope to see a build log someday so we can how you make those small models.

I agree with everyone else Javier - your work is superb. I’d love to see more examples, and details of your construction techniques (I showed my wife your pictures and she is now asking why I can’t make my models as small as yours as they would take up so much less space in the house!). 

Best wishes 

Derek

After making ships on a larger scale for years and not knowing what to do next with them, it was precisely the problem of space in the home, together with my facet of collector, which led me to make and collect miniature models ( I'm now making number 62 of my collection).

Regarding the techniques, I'm posting in the forum section “Build Logs for Scratch Ships Model Projects”a topic called “Two miniature moliceiros”, which without being a step by step, shows part of the process that I follow in the construction of my models.

In any case, I will be happy to answer all questions and doubts that may arise

 

A cordial greeting

 

Javier

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.
