  1. Congratulations on the completion of your Cheerful. I have enjoyed following your build log and look forward to your next build.
  2. You are making good progress on your Longboat. I probably had more tape on my frames than what you have. It really strengthened the frames and did not cause me any problems in the fairing process. The tape will be removed before you start planking.
  3. That is a nice birthday present, something you will cherish for the rest of your life. We can tell that you are a proud PopPop.
  4. I am sorry to see this happen, but glad the young boy is OK. The good thing is the new model will be much better.
  5. Thanks Chuck. We are already registered for the Northeast Joint Clubs Show. We look forward to seeing you guys. We will also be spending some time in Lyndhurst and touring NYC. I will also be visiting my favorite place to eat as pictured below.
  6. Thanks Michael for your comment and for the "Likes". I have completed the lining off of the port side of the hull. Now I can start the planking.
  7. Your Longboat is looking very nice. Thanks for the tip on installing the simulated nails as each plank is installed. I hope to see your model at a future SMSNJ meeting.
  8. Congratulations on completing your Longboat. I have enjoyed following your build log and have learned a lot that will help me on my build. I hope to see your Longboat at the Northeast Joint Clubs Conference and Show in New London CT in April. Thanks also for all of the fine photos of your model.
  9. Ken, very nice job. I cannot wait to see this in person in April.
  10. Joe, I get my blades directly from Thurston. They are great to deal with. http://www.thurstonmfg.com/jewelers-slotting-saws.html
  11. Completed lining off the starboard side of my Longboat. I had trouble with the tape sticking to the frames, but found some 1/16" Art Tape from Hobby Lobby that has worked out very well. I took a damp rag and wiped off the surfaces that I wanted the tape to stick to. The slightest amount of dust will cause the tape to not adhere properly. Now to start the port side and then on to the planking.
  12. Looks like a good start. It will be nice to see another addition to the Cheerful fleet. I look forward to following this build log.
  13. You did a good job on your bolsters. I hope mine turn out as nice as yours.
  14. Here is a print friendly version of the Byrnes Saw Tips. I have enjoyed my Byrnes saw and have used it more than what I thought I would have. It is a high quality and precision miniature power tool. Byrnes Saw Opeation Tips.pdf
  15. That is good news. I was afraid that I had messed up the transom. It is great that you designed this kit so that small mistakes by the builder can be corrected leaving no evidence of the mistake.

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.
