  1. The carving set is beautiful and I am sure that all builders would love access to carvings such as these for what ever they are build.
  2. Beautiful! well done and love the base in marble but think she is sitting up a wee bit high.
  3. I have the Le Grose Ventre on my build list, I will be watching with much interest. Thank you for starting this log
  4. and here all the time I've been throwing them away! geez
  5. Nice start! Looks like a sweet model watching with interest.
  6. Sweet, nice. I have all my wood strips in a cardboard box so when I need a certain size or type piece of wood I have to dig! I like this idea and using tubes I can store any length in the tube and it is clear so I can see that piece. This goes on my list of do,s
  7. Got some of those. Find out where you can buy a supply of sanding belts, they tend to get a little expensive otherwise. Do not use oil if you plan on gluing any thing to the surface
  8. Water based or oil based? I would use water based and dilute with water brush on and wipe off with cloth. Let dry then apply again if needed.
  9. first wood kit? looks like you are doing perfect!! yep diluted stain, no paint.
  10. Great start! There are better grade plywood's, but you won't see the inside and as long as you use a sufficient amount of glue and proper fastners it should not be a problem and you can add blocking where you think you will be needing the extra support.
  11. Can't wait until you move back to the Cutty Sark build, but I can totally understand about loosing interest especially when you run against the more difficult parts of the build.

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
