  1. Paul,

     

    If the Mariners Mirror volumes are still available I would like to have them.

     

    I don’t have a Pay Pal account but would be happy to mail you a check and you can send them when you have my payment.

  3. Complete Boat Building Lines Plan & Art of Lofting 6 DVD set by master boat builder Arno Day. One two-disc DVD-ROM explains the line plans and the other five contain over 10 hours of how to loft. The Lines Plan DVD is like new and the remainder are new in factory sealed cases. $70 including Priority Mail shipping within the lower 48 states. Message me if interested.
  4. I realized that I can contact other upper NYS folk on MSW through the “Community” function. Here is an out-reach I am planning to send to about 35 folk as far away as the Albany area. Have any comments or suggestions.?

    Allow me to introduce our model ship group located in Rochester NY to you. We are a small group that was founded in late 2015. We have members in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Florida, and even one in Lisbon Portugal. We meet monthly and through the Zoom application we have been able to include our more distant members. You can learn more about us by visiting our web site modelshipwrightguildwny.org.
    We have located you through the “Community” drop down function on the Model Ship World forum and are reaching out to explore your possible interest and participation in a lively and talented group of modelers from all walks of life.
    Generally, sessions are structured with introductions of visitors, followed by a brief business segment and then we almost always have a central presentation topic or two ending with a show and tell of group models. The sessions usually last two hours.
    So you are invited to visit us (tune in via Zoom) this Fall and see what we are all about. You might find us interesting enough to join us on a more consistent basis. Please PM me, with your email address or cell, and I will put you on distribution for our Fall schedule.
    We will not badger you beyond this outreach if you are not interested.
    Hoping to hear from you.

  5. We are downsizing our living quarters and I must thin out my collections. I'm only charging shipping cost for the following ten issues of The Mariner's Mirror: Vol 91/2 : 2006 - Trafalgar Bicentennial Special Issue Vol 93/1-4 : 2007 Vol 94/1-4 : 2008 Vol 93/2 : 2009 $8 for Media Mail or $15 for Priority Mail within the lower 48 states. I prefer PayPal friends & family. Message me if interested. Thank you,
  6. Vintage Lot of 4 Dietzgen #2192 Spline Weights. 3-1/2 pound lead spline weights for drafting. Especially useful for ship hull lines, model railroad curves, etc. Painted black with green felt bottoms. I purchased these used approximately 40 years ago. Lightly used and in good condition for their age. Selling as a set. $130 for the lot, including priority mail shipment within the lower 48. Payment via PayPal friends and family.
  7. The practicum is available on CD or USB drive from the NRG for 39.95 + shipping (about $5). If I had it, I would included it with the kit. https://thenrgstore.org/products/lexington-practicum?_pos=1&_sid=5abcadbd9&_ss=r Also, search for Lexington practicum on the forum for more information. Or click this link: https://modelshipworld.com/search/?&q= lexington practicum&search_and_or=and&sortby=relevancy According to Kurt Van Dahm, "Clay's articles appeared in eight articles (as a practicum) in Seaways' Ships in Scale magazine during all of 2005 and early 2006 and in the"Nautical Research Journal" article -Summer, 2004; Vol 49, #2." If you have the Seaways and NRJ back issue archives then it looks like you have most, if not all, of the information.
  8. Gently used complete set of ship's curves in a mahogany case. I have inventoried them and they are all there. Check last image for a list of curves included. $100 + shipping from 13456 SOLD!!! Paypal (preferred) or check.
  9. We are downsizing and I need to clear out some space. I have an extensive collection of ship research and modeling journals and magazines that I'd prefer to give to someone who will use them rather than dump them at the recycler's. Nautical Research Journal: A nearly complete set of volumes 45-60, missing the following issues: 45/3&4, 46/1&2, 48/1, 50/4, and 58/3. Seaways' Ships in Scale: A nearly complete set of volumes 45-60, missing the following issues: VIII-XXVIII, missing the following issues: VIII/1-3, XXVI/4-5, XXVII/1-2 & 4-6 and XXVIII/1&6. Three of the issues have been disbound (but no pages are missing) for scanning as part of the NRJ/Seaways digitalization project. Also includes Seaways III/4. Maritime Life and Traditions: I have two sets: Nos. 4-23, 26, 28-34 Nos. 15-18, 30, 31 and 34. I am giving away complete sets, NOT individual issues. Please let me know which set (or sets) you want and your zip so I can calculate shipping rates. I will take PayPal (preferred) or check.
  10. dLumberyard's 3/16" (1:64) scale plank-on-bulkhead semi-kit for Clay Feldman's Continental Navy brig Lexington practicum. The kit includes a set of bulkheads and center profile and a complete package of milled Swiss Pearwood, Boxwood and Ebony to complete the hull. $75 plus shipping NOTE: This is the wooden parts semi-kit ONLY and does not include plans or the practicum. The practicum is available on CD or USB drive from the NRG for 39.95 + shipping (about $5). https://thenrgstore.org/products/lexington-practicum?_pos=1&_sid=5abcadbd9&_ss=r Also, search for Lexington practicum on the forum for more information.

  11. Revised Search Files for the Nautical Research Journal (NRJ) Volumes 1-40 Searchable Index: I have revised and attached two search files NRG_NDX.HTM and NRG_NAV for the NRJ Volumes 1-40 Searchable Index. This fix is for use on hard drive installations ONLY (it won't work for the CDs since you can't copy the file to the CD). NOTE: This fix is for the NRJ Volumes 1-40 Searchable Index ONLY - this fix should also run OK if you are running an older browser. Please perform the following steps, in order, to implement the fix: Close all open browsers. Navigate to the file folder on your hard drive containing the Nautical Research Journal (NRJ) digital archive collection. Copy the files new_NRG_NDX.HTM and new_NRG_NAV.HTM Rename the existing NRG_NAV.HTM file to something like NRG_NAV_orig.HTM so that you can restore it if necessary. Rename the existing NRG_NDX.HTM file to something like NRG_NDX_orig.HTM so that you can restore it if necessary. Rename the file new_NRG_NAV.HTM to NRG_NAV.HTM. Rename the file new_NRG_NDX.HTM to NRG_NDX.HTM. Open your browser and load the searchable index's NRG_NDX.HTM page. Enter you search term(s) and click the "Find" button (or hit return). The search results will open in a new browser tab. If it doesn't work the first time, try refreshing the page. Sometimes the old version of the page is held in the browser's cache - refreshing the page will clear the cache. Please let me know how this works for you. new_NRG_NDX.HTM new_NRG_NAV.HTM
  12. Revised Search Files for the Original Ships in Scale (OSIS) Digital Archive Set: I have revised and attached the search file NAV.HTM for the Original Ships in Scale (OSIS) digital archive collection for use on hard drive installations ONLY (it won't work for the CDs since you can't copy the file to the CD). NOTE: This fix is for the Original Ships in Scale (OSIS) digital archive collection ONLY - this fix should also run OK if you are running an older browser. Please perform the following steps, in order, to implement the fix: Close all open browsers. Navigate to the file folder on your hard drive containing the Original Ships in Scale (OSIS) digital archive collection. Copy the attached OSIS_NAV.HTM file into the folder. Rename the existing NAV.HTM file to something like NAV_orig.HTM so that you can restore it if necessary. Rename the new OSIS_NAV.HTM file to NAV.HTM. Open your browser and load the collection's HOME.HTM or index.htm page (it doesn't matter which one, they are the same thing). Click on the "Find Article" link to open the search page. Enter you search term(s) and click the "Find" button (or hit return). The search results will open in a new browser tab. If it doesn't work the first time, try refreshing the page. Sometimes the old version of the page is held in the browser's cache - refreshing the page will clear the cache. Please let me know how this works for you. OSIS_NAV.HTM
  13. Revised Search Files for the Model ShipBuilder (MSB) Digital Archive Set: I have revised and attached the search file NAV.HTM for the Model ShipBuilder (MSB) digital archive collection for use on hard drive installations ONLY (it won't work for the CDs since you can't copy the file to the CD). NOTE: This fix is for the Model ShipBuilder (MSB) digital archive collection ONLY - this fix should also run OK if you are running an older browser. Please perform the following steps, in order, to implement the fix: Close all open browsers. Navigate to the file folder on your hard drive containing the Model ShipBuilder(MSB) digital archive collection. Copy the attached MSB_NAV.HTM file into the folder. Rename the existing NAV.HTM file to something like NAV_orig.HTM so that you can restore it if necessary. Rename the new MSB_NAV.HTM file to NAV.HTM. Open your browser and load the collection's HOME.HTM or index.htm page (it doesn't matter which one, they are the same thing). Click on the "Find Article" link to open the search page. Enter you search term(s) and click the "Find" button (or hit return). The search results will open in a new browser tab. If it doesn't work the first time, try refreshing the page.

  14. Revised Search Files for Seaways and NRJ Digital Archive Sets: I have completed the index search code revisions for the remaining digital archive sets - Model ShipBuilder (MSB), Original Ships in Scale (OSIS) and the Nautical Research Journal Volumes 1-40 searchable index (NRJCD) - to permit the article/index search feature to function properly with the current browser versions. Please note that these revised files are for use on hard drive installations ONLY (they won't work for the CDs since you can't copy the file to the CD). I have successfully tested the fix on both a Windows PC and a Mac using the latest versions of the following browsers: Chrome 84.0.4147.105 (Win 10 & Mac OS-X Catalina) Firefox 79.0 (Win 10 & Mac OS-X Catalina) Opera 70.0 (Win 10) & 70.0.3728.71 (Mac OS-X Catalina) Microsoft Edge 84.0.522.50 (Win 10 & Mac OS-X Catalina) Safari 13.1.2(13609.3.1.5) (Mac OS-X Catalina) Each digital archive set requires it's own dedicated NAV.HTM file as each code is unique to suit differences in their archive's index file structure. I will post a separate reply for each set with set-specific instructions within the hour. I am working with Kurt Van Dahm to roll out these revisions on a wider basis. Thank you,
  15. Michael, The fix was for the "Seaways' Ships in Scale (SSiS)" vol 1 and vol 2 only. I'll work on the "Original Ships in Scale (OSiS)" and "Model ShipBuilder (MSB)"sets tomorrow or Monday. The code needs to be modified somewhat as the index file structures are different from that of the "Seaways' Ships in Scale (SSiS)" vol 1 and vol 2 collection. I'm glad the "Seaways' Ships in Scale (SSiS)" vol 1 and vol 2 fix worked for you. I should have a fix for the NRJ Vol 1-40 searchable index later in the week.
