  1. 100% agree... adjusting the height table to your work is easier than adjusting you to the work. Having the proper height to work means it is easier to work and it also means that you can get a higher quality work.
  2. I just finish replacing a part of the deck...at home , not on the 74. To synchronize 3 Profoto and 3 Canon flashs together, I got a module called Youngnuo YN622C. Here is a picture to verify that everthing works together and trying to light every part of the model at the same level. Even if it is artificial light, color are very close to what we see. We can clearly see 2 tone of cherry wood; natural and 1 coat of tung oil.
  3. both covers looks like lead 74 guns 1780; lead under and copper on the top (only half part shown)
  4. We have to be careful with drawings, especially with some curved parts which are sometimes exaggerated like the rear balcony, and maybe? other parts on the side view.
  5. Hi Gary, in comparison, here is what the french were doing: in this case : 2 steps and the floor was made after the molding and holding on the molding
  6. a twisted wire in the jar, the rope pass through the ring, you pull the other side through a sponge, and you let dry, rope attached at both ends in the air
  7. I use walnut stain made from walnut shell https://ardec.ca/en/p/62/walnut-stain The color has to be fix with alchool. I also do some other mix with beewax and other components depending of the results I want I am not sure you use a good method to turn ropes, look like some turns are missing to hold every thing together.
  8. Thank you Mark, it was educational for me as well. I watched a lot of video up to Seki knife festival in Japan. I also watched many video on sharpening and everyone had his way, but it was always about the same thing: making a Burr and Polishing.

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.
