  1. I don’t know about the others but the Sloop of war is an excellent book.
  2. Don’t want to steal an idea but something like David Antscherl’s Greenwich hospital barge. Kinda similar but with the added compliment of a deck structure might be nice. Ben that looks really nice in open frame alongside the QAB.
  3. Looks great. I have used TransTint dye I got from Woodcraft with good results on other projects it’s nice to see another brand in action.
  4. Each post has a number in the right upper corner. I usually just bookmark the page and re-title it something like “chuck cuts wood post 112” or “homemade block tumbler post 34”. I keep these in a folder titled MSW posts.
  5. Cant wait to see how it turns out Bob. I am afraid it might also happen to me after I finish the QAB. Just 2 weeks after I acquired the wood for next project, the Winnie group/project came on line and took the forums by storm
  6. Wonderful! Wondering why that one isn't in some kinda glass enclosure with its own humidity and dust control.
  7. Just finished putting the hooks on this frame. I had a piece of plexi left over from one of the kids projects and wanted to frame up one of these plans so 7$ at Lowes got me the trim and the rest from around the house got me here. Was kinda interesting using the Byrnes table saw to cut the corners.
  8. Looks great! It is always exciting to see it off of the build board without the centers in.

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.
