  1. JCT, They aren't "oil" but rather water base artist acrylics. I prepped the plastic with Tamiya Fine Surface Primer in a rattle can. I then applied the paint with a brush. I dip the brush in water then take a dab of paint on the brush, then a little more water, then mix it around till it thins out then apply it to the model. Same mixing/blending technique an artist uses to put acrylic on canvas. I use a plastic egg carton style palette I get in Michaels. There is probably 4 maybe 5 thin coats of paint on the model when I am done I overspray with Testors Dullcoat to seal the paint and decals.. Winsor Newton produces both oil and water base artist paints.
  2. Fantastic layout Michael. Loved the video as did my wife. Beautiful garden.
  3. Got these two kits in the mail today (sorry for the glare - didn't remove the cellophane wrapper)
  4. Druxey, are you, Niagara on the Lake, being affected by the rising levels of Lake Ontario like Rochester NY is ? Lake shore flooding ?
  5. Nighty night ! Don't let the Blue Gerrit or Zeedijk Ghost get you !
  6. Ah but Carl he still has to worry about the Megaladon lurking in the waters offshore.
  7. I have never used "the Cloud" for anything, never will either, Denis.
  8. I'm using a Canon PIXMA MG7520 with a DPI of 9600 (horizontal) x 2400 (vertical) and 6 individual ink cartridges (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta, Grey, Black and a double black for plain printing) for both my photos and decals. (Also has a Scan, Copy, and "Cloud" feature)
  9. Thanks Carl ! Yes, my Security Chief, Dr. Gundam, did tell me he encountered a group of your spies trying to penetrate the StealthWorks, but he chased them off. But, Carl, you really must teach your spies to be more discrete; they left a very large and obvious trail of Hollandaise. <pun intended> But they did not succeed in discovering our next Stealthy project.

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.
