  1. Rework sucks, but at least it will be worth it in the end. It’s a lot better than being tormented by something you just know isn’t right. But I feel at least some of your pain since having to remove the cap rail on my boat.
  2. Nice work, and I like how that last picture you used has almost a dramatic feeling about it.
  3. Patrick, very nice planking demos! I personally like A the best, but D is another very good option.
  4. Thank you very much, a lot of the credit goes to Kurt Van Dahm for supplying me with the stains he used on his model.
  5. I have successfully removed the cap rail piece, and now it’s just cleanup. Then I will have to make the tone match that of the other cap rail pieces, as the underside is slightly off. These two longest pieces are the only asymmetrical ones, so I can follow my original plan with the rest. I’m glad I caught this when I did though, this could have been a lot harder...
  6. Yes, it's also very handy that Model Shipways replaces parts for free.
  7. Catastrophe!!! I had the clever idea to install the cap rail on the reverse sides, that way the laser cut holes would be cleaner, and the joints would be less prominent. In doing so, I forgot that the cap rail pieces are actually, in fact, not symetrical!! So far, this is the greatest blunder of my modeling career. Luckily, I do have some isopropyl alcohol, so as long as I'm careful, I hope I can remove the necessary piece and clean it up to my satisfaction. Wish me luck, this may prove difficult.

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.
