  1. Very well done. I know how difficult this was to do as i too made a set for my America build.
  2. I am developing a clamp that will go between the frames to hold the internal planks. This is my first attempt that i will refine over time
  3. Hi Hal the dowel tool comes from Vander lay Industries . Here is the link http://vanda-layindustries.com/html/treenail_instructions.html
  4. Great idea about the knurled screws but they will be almost impossible to find here in Trinidad. I do have washers on the screws. The wood is an extreamly hard wood which i threaded then put CA so it should last a while. I am in New York next month and will try to find the screws.
  5. Greg was the end of the second limber strake also thinned to 2” over 9ft and was the end tapered over 9ft
  6. Haha, it can’t get any worst than my path. But you know something, the journey has been fantastic and my skills have improved as I get past each challenge, each screw up and perhaps more important, ever time I get it right the first time. Kevin
  7. Its so great to be following you in my build. I cant tell you how much i learned from following your progress.
  8. I just like epoxy for major strength pieces. I am a big boat builder and cant get epoxy out of my system. I could have cut it out but the truth is i was able to solve the problem.
  9. This is an excellent video on building a real life stern assembly.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
