  1. I deleted the picture of my Red Dragon build from your thread , didn't want to confuse your followers.
  2. Finished initial planking of the deck. Regular Elmer's wood glue worked great. Thanks for the tip Nigel.
  3. Had to skip ahead a bit and attach the keel to be able to fasten it to the keel klamp .
  4. Saw another member use this tool . Arrived today. Can't wait to use it.
  5. I sprayed the hull with shellac before attaching the false deck. To keep it together more than anything else. The lining is very fragile and tends to splinter at the edges. P.S. : Fingerprint scanners do not work after a few hours of model building. ( lesson learned ). lol
  6. Started on the hull lining. The instructions suggest you use contact cement. I used quick dying ( cyanoacrylate ) on one side and white glue ( carpenter's ) on the other side for just a couple of strips and found they both work. Is there any specific reason you would need a specific adhesive ? Just curious.
  7. I don't mind at all , Nigel. I've already picked up a few good ideas from your build.
  8. Looks great ! That clamp is a great idea. Is that something you made or bought ?
  9. Nice work. I appreciate all the technical pics . As a novice , they really help out.

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.
