  1. I bought 2 boats from CMB and mounted them on the stern quarters. worked out well. Mort
  2. Hi Mark, I use DAP Weldwood Contact Cement. It's not the same as the cement you would use on plastic models. Fact is I don't what it's used for. It's just contact cement. My mentor used it and whatever he said ALWAYS worked. I have been using it since 1986 with no longevity problems at all. In fact I just had a new can delivered 2 weeks ago for my Victory. Same brand, it's supposed to be low odor except it takes about an hour to dry. If not I go back to the other contact cement. Mort
  3. Hi Mark, Meant to add that since there is cement on both the hull and plate there's no issue with the corners. Should a corner rise up I gently press it down.
  4. Hi Mark, I think I'm in the minority as I use contact cement when I copper a hull. I buy it in 3 ounce bottles, which keeps the fumes down and also apply it with the windows open. The bottle contains a small brush for application. I brush a thin covering onto the hull - a 3x3 or 4X4 area. I then apply it to each copper plate - yes it's time consuming. By then - approximately 15 minutes - the glue on the hull has begun to cure and I then copper the hull. I like contact cement because I have a few minutes to reposition the plates after I apply them if necessary, as opposed to Ca which instantly dries. If any cement does adhere to a plate I simply and easily peel/rub it off. Finally should it be necessary to slightly adjust or remove a plate after they completely dry I heat the plate with a soldering iron on low heat adjust or replace it. Any questions, don't hesitate. Keep up the great work. Hope this helps, Mort
  5. very nice. very, very nice. you're doing a wonderful job. keep up the great work. mort
  6. did you order the eyelets from cmb? keep up the great work it's very very nice. mort
  7. looks nice really nice. it's a delicate process but it's fine. i painted the preventer stays with elmers school glue - diluted white glue - and used a hair drier to accelerate the drying in order to make sure they stayed straight. keep up the great work. mort

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.
