  1. I was finally able to speak with Bob, my book has arrived. Once again I'm a happy customer! Shawn
  2. I’m have the same issue and have posted a similar question. fingers crossed. Shawn
  3. Received my boxwood carvings today from Jack. They are even better in person! These are truly works of art! Shawn
  4. By the looks of him, he may have already had a yourkie or two... Sorry Shawn
  5. Maybe I didn't explain what I'm looking for very clearly, sorry. What I'm looking for is how much to take off to create the stepping line. In your post you mention you used your mill to create this stepping line, but how much did you mill down to create it?
  6. Mike, Wonder if you could help me a bit. I've started on this neat little ship and have the backbone completed. The question I'm looking for an answer to is where did you get your measurements for things like the stepping line? I'm not finding this on the plans? Are you just making assumptions? Or am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Shawn
  7. I considered trying my hand at this when HobbyMill closed. May need to give another consideration?
  8. Received my copy yesterday. Haven't had a chance to read anything, merely had 10 or 15 to peruse. Looks like another great addition!!! Seems to answer some questions that come up that were not answered in previous publications. Great work David and Greg!!!! Thanks Shawn
  9. I purchased one of these Dremel 2050 to complete the treenailing on Cheerful. Works great, fits my hand with little fatigue. If you are considering one, I would highly recommend it. Shawn
  10. Vossiewulf wonder if you could tell me about your festoon vacuum. Do you hook it to your Byrnes machines? Does it work well? Is it worth the price tag? How loud is it? I’m looking at getting some sort of vac for my model room and not sure what to get. Shawn
  11. Thanks everyone for the great insight! I found my problem was not with how I was cutting or sanding these planks. It had everything to do with apparently I cannot see. Slip on the old optivisor and I wow I can really get these dead on now. Thanks again. Shawn

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.
