  1. Steve you coud get one of these Hold and Fold tool to fold your stairs. I've used them on 1:350 PE, they work well, are easy to use and more accurate than pliers.
  2. Ken the Hermione was in NYC on July 4th 2015. According to their website, this is their 2019 schedule. The frigate has planned to leave her home port of Rochefort April 4, 2019 for 12 stopovers for a navigation period of 3 months. If you want to follow the frigate of freedom, schedule your 2019 agenda.

  3. Jack Northrup's YB-35 flying wing in 1940 was the precursor to the B2 Spirit
  4. We missed a lot of the snow storms here in the Valley this year, Denis, running below average here. Western NY, Buffalo (118.7"), Rochester(96.8"), Syracuse()114.7" got the biggies this year. Albany is running about 56 inches to-date.
  5. Denis, from GM's website GMC vehicles are designed and built to resist corrosion. All body and sheet metal components are warranted against corrosion for 3 years/36,000 miles and rust-through protection lasts for 6 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Application of additional rust-inhibiting materials is neither necessary nor required under the Sheet Metal Coverage. GMC makes no recommendations concerning the usefulness or value of such products. Application of after-manufacture rustproofing products may create an environment that reduces the corrosion resistance built into your vehicle. Repairs to correct damage caused by such applications are not covered under your New Vehicle Limited Warranty. See your GMC dealer for terms of this limited warranty. Chevrolet has the same statement Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built to resist corrosion. All body and sheet metal components are warranted against corrosion for the first 3 years/36,000 miles and rust-through protection lasts for the first 6 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Application of additional rust-inhibiting materials is neither necessary nor required under the Sheet Metal Coverage. Chevrolet makes no recommendations concerning the usefulness or value of such products.

It's been my experience that the frame rusts out before the body itself. That's what killed my 1990 Chevy Celebrity station wagon after 285,000 miles and 19++ years on the road, frame rotted where the axle/springs attach, causing it to fail inspection; body was in pretty decent shape with only minor rust thru along the lower areas.
  6. I live in the North (lots of salt on roads) and I also own two Chevy Impalas a 2004 with over 200,000 miles and a 2010 with over 120,000 miles, neither car is showing any signs of rusting. - some minor rust in the wheel wells of the 2004 but none in the 2010. Both are running well and still get 30-32 MPG highway at 70 MPH cruise control speed. They both did come with a factory warrantee of 100,000 miles rust free. aka no rust thru.
  7. Testors makes both a clear and white background decal paper. I've gotten some in Hobby Lobby. Denis (Popeye the Sailor) has another source online. PM hi. The sheets are roughly half an8 x 10 or 8.5 x 11 sheet. Testors also makes a decal sealant spray specifically for ink jet printers to set the ink before applying them. I've used them successfully in a number of applications include on sails (cloth).
  8. Kurt, the Lee Valley brushes are not metal wire but rather a stiff bristle in a spiral around a wire "stick" - I think they are nylon bristles, same as you get in the store for cleaning kitchen bottles. In fact they look just like the ones shown in Don's video.
  9. Get out the manual ! Seriously, dissemble the brush, and carefully clean all the parts, Lee Valley sells a really nice set of airbrush cleaning bristle brushes which I use for my Badger 200. You may have to soak the parts in thinner - make sure you disassemble the plunger (where the air hose connects) and clean it too. As a routine when I finish painting I run clear thinner thru the brush even if I am going to continue later. Do the same between colors. At the end of your session, run more thinner thru it and clean with the bristle brushes, disassemble as needed.
  10. John if you are refering to the post you made in the Sparrow Hawk build, send a PM to one of the moderators and have them move it for you to the appropriate forum.

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.
