No Mark,most of this is original footage filmed by the Australian crew that was never used in the DVD.These have been posted by Modelsworld.ru,Russia's modeling forum.There are literally hundreds of other tutorial videos covering plastic modelling,armour etc.

 

Happy New Year

Given that I paid for my DVD, I feel no guilt grabbing all the videos from that site. I recommend "Save From Net":

Some of you may be wondering about the legitimacy of this browser extension. Well, I did a google search for it and it appears to be clean. It also got past my virus and malware scanner on my PC. Just a note - it does not appear to work with versions of Chrome above v35. I used Firefox to grab the videos.

Thanks Nigel.  I'll go have a look then.  :)   I'm just very cautious about such things.  Always have been and probably always will be.   Hell, I even paid for the original Leisure Suit Larry game way back when it was pirated by everybody.

Mtalor: thanks for that comment on paying for software, I write software and it's not simple. Much like our ship models software is very detailed and takes a lot of time and study to make it good.

I've done my share of programming and shareware.  Never made a dime from it until I started work in IT.   I do believe in paying.  There's quite a few folks here that do things for us shipbuilders (such as the authors of various books and plans) and I want them paid and not have their work stolen.

 

That game must have been back in the 80's Mark

 

Is that the only copy they ever sold

 

Around 85 I think.   I hope not as they brought out more but as I recall it held the record for being pirated.

 

 

Anyway, that's the way I am.

I fulling understand Mark and it wouldn't be the done thing to promote pirated Vids in here :)

 

Happy New Year

I must thank you again for this Tony,I had another 'fix' last week.The list was up to 94 then so I a have another one to watch :) I know I am finding a lot of useful stuff not even mentioned in the DVD.Obviously because of the time spent with Dr Mike,if they covered everything,it would have been a ten DVD boxed set :D

 

Kind Regards

I ordered this DVD using paypal. The payment went through fine. I have tried to contact them using their support address on the web twice now to find out if the DVD has been shipped and received no response.  I'm glad to read some of you have received the DVD, so I will give it 2 weeks before I contact PayPal and cancel the transaction.

Thanks for a great site, I am working very slowly on the HMS Bounty (the one with half the hull uncovered)

 

Update, They are still in business! Yah! I received the DVD today 5-31-18, they finally did get back to my request and said they have been flooded with orders was the reason for the response delay.

Dr. Mike is a gifted model maker but some of his techniques are a bit...unusual. For example, in video 78, minute 28:02, he is using a toaster to heat planks for bending. He retrieves them when ready with a curved surgical clamp. I'm quite certain I recall my mother telling me never to stick anything metallic into a plugged in toaster that's actually in the process of toasting but she sometimes was a worry wort. Perhaps Russian toasters are different than US toasters?

Yes, he does quite a lot that could be in the 'don't try this at home' category. His use of the table saw, for example. But as a surgeon he's used to being supremely confident with his risks which you can reckon he's worked at perfecting. At least I think he's a surgeon. I always enjoy watching different styles and approaches to model ship builds which demonstrate the wide range of imagination and thinking that can be applied to the same situation. He's also good at adapting his tools.

 

Once I can start modelling again (hoping for August) I'll certainly go back to some of the videos for stimulation but I won't try the toaster idea as I can use other sources of heat.

I believe Dr. Mike is a cardiologist. Personally, I have switched to a heat gun to bend wood and find it superior and quicker to soaking and steaming.

Thanks for the clarification about Mike's speciality, Greg. I use an old hairdryer. But I have an old heat gun, so I'll try that.

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.
