  6. I have read that any citrus tree will produce good timber, as with just about any fruit or nut tree. The drawback is the size of the lumber it produces, but that is not a concern for what we use it for. The fresh cut wood should be left to dry for one year per inch of thickness. A good idea would be for you to slice the wood into one inch thick slices and stack the lumber with one inch "sticks" separating the boards. Let us know how the wood works out. See you next January.......... Jim
  7. If anyone needs some inspiration to do some practice in order to improve their carvings, by all means check out the website below. Alexander is a world class shipbuilder and a very accomplished carver. Most of the work shown is in the round, but worth a look.........enjoy. http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/5412-carving-from-belgorod/page-1 Jim

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.
