  1. I actually really like the nails in the trim, etc. Not something you see very often and it looks great.
  2. Really impressive. Awesome weathering techniques.
  3. Love the molding Danny... I seriously started looking up mini table saws again because of it... Oy.
  4. Mike - I had plenty of room under the seat. But I also pre-measured so that the "hatch" was a little further forward.
  5. Hey Eddie, FYI - on the wiring, I gave each lamp it's own 9-volt (so they'd have plenty of power) but then wired them in quasi-parallel to a single switch mounted under the front.
  6. Nice work on the doors Danny. The doors on the AL kit ended up being so thick that it took quite a bit of work sanding and maneuvering to fit them somewhere between being able to function, and having too much gap between the door and the door 'jam'.
  7. I'm glad I'm already done so I don't have to try and measure up to this... Great work Dirk!
  8. Beautiful painting Sjors - that's an unbelievable amount of patience...
  9. Hey Eddie, Welcome to the Wagon Train! Looks like we're onto a new trend here for the Sailors who hit the shore leave. Good luck with the kit! I've pointed out some challenges over in my build - my biggest advice would be to soak just about all the wood if it needs to be bent, even it just slightly. It's pretty brittle (to say the least). Also, keep an eye on inventory, not all the quantities, etc, seemed to match up and I've had to dip into my back stock for few pieces. Good luck!
  10. Hey Dan! I just noticed the build in your link. Ack! Can't believe I didn't see it. Glad to catch up though. Definitely liking the look of this kit's quality over the AL kit - that's for sure. Having fun doing something of such a different scale?
  11. Brilliant work, obviously B.E. A very richly earned Congratulations. You must be extraordinarily proud. I look forward to milking your log and the knowledge contained therein when I pull the Peg down from the shelf and get her underway. Thanks for sharing your journey with all of us.

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.
