      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.

Scientific Kit of USS Constituion No. 170

Recommended Posts

My first post, I hope this is in the right place.  I acquired a partially completed Scientific kit of the USS Constitution no. 170 from one of our club members who passed away last year.  I need a copy of the instructions.  If anyone has a copy I would be willing to pay for them and the cost of mailing of course.  I'm the Purser of the Rocky Mountain Shipwrights in the Denver, CO metro area.

Nat - sorry I can't help out with the plans but sure looking forward to watching your Connie come together :) I've been working on a Bluenose by Scientific. Maybe you can follow instructions by looking at a Revell Connie build in one of the websites if you cannot find Scientific plans. I also referred to a Bluenose practicum to help me along with details on my build. Please post some pics of your work - Cheers!!!

Nat,

  I have copies of the Scientific  Constitution. However they are copies and you would have to piece them together. I built the model but never completed it. I have looked high and low for the original directions but have come up empty handed. Send me you address if you want them.

Thanks Roger! I did not gain access to any plans from scientific. However, complete Scientific Constitution kits can be found on eBay without difficulty and not too expensive.

Folks, when someone asks for an address,  real, email, etc... send it to  them a PM.  This site gets crawled by bots and spammers so take precautions to protect yourself.  Nat, I'd delete your two posts and if you can't contact a moderator.

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.
