  1. Jacek sorry for the late answer. I used some 6 mm ply for the frames. But I don't know why the keel part of the frames was little bit tick. I think it was the variation of the thickness of the ply so I had to sand this part on the thickness sander. I didn't work on my model a long time because moving to another country and lot of other thinks and I hope I will be back soon. All the best and good luck... Greetings Sinan
  2. Nice start on a beautiful build. I like everything about this, the ship is one off the best, the movie...ect. Can you say a few words about the plans please. I will like to have the plans and one day to start building this beauty. Thank You!
  3. Nice start. The bulkhead method is my favorite one so I will be here to learn some and maybe suggest some things.
  4. That is a neat idea. I think the white plexiglass that is used for making neon signs is going to be the best choice for this. They used also in medicine for x-ray copies.
  5. This is http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/263-all-my-homemade-tools/?hl=%2Ball+%2Bhomemade+%2Btoolsa link to the homemade tools I made. You can find the thickness sander there first...
  6. Thank You Norman, Dee Dee, Sherry and Janos for Your reply. I have some rough birch wood and I will try to cut it to ticker boards and leave it to dry for 2 or 3 years, and hoping that I will use it some day.
  7. Everybody heard about birch plywood but how about birch wood how good is for modeling (planking ect).
  8. Nice start. I will need to build one my self so this will be interesting for me.
  9. Congratulations on your beautiful model build. I like the additional things on display.

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.
