  1. Nice work on the general so far Denis it will be a great display when you are finished. It also crossed my mind that locomotives and ships are closer sometimes than people think. Erebus and terror had locomotive boilers in them. Michael
  2. Hi Druxey, Yes overall it is being good, weather could improve it has been cool and wet. Well the Hand of God need to get in there sometimes. Some health challenges in the family but things are improving on that front. Michael
  3. I did a second video with the loco pulling Lord Montague's luxury coach Michael
  4. Hi everyone I am still in railway mode..... it will pass eventually and I will be back at the boats. working on a new live steam boiler at the moment. Shaping the base of the steam dome with some 220 stuck to the same diameter copper tube 2.875" diameter next picture shows the smokebox and boiler in line the flanged front tube plate will act as a register for the smokebox. here is a line drawing of the boiler And the running gear This is the locomotive Michael
  5. Sweet Keith!! very nice work on the removal from the build board and a lovely looking hull now that all the extra wood is gone. nice scroll work too. Michael
  6. Hi Mark, Yes it is the new place in the city, building the planter and fence last spring was a great deal of work. Michael
  7. Mark, What an exquisite model! It is a pity that I live so far away, I would certainly enjoy seeing the model up close. Michael
  8. Hi Dennis, I purchased the loco from Accucraft and then modified it to a larger scale from 7/8th scale to 1/10scale Michael
  9. Hi Druxey the locomotive is actually modeled after Sipat this an 18 inch gauge loco by Bagnall like these Michael
  10. I have been absent from the forum for a little while because I have been caught up with summer model railway stuff. I have to squeeze past the boat models as i go back and forth to the bench. The garden railway needed some maintenance and well you all know where that leads. I have also needed to spend time in the house with Judy so took up a kitchen table work spot to work on a couple of sculpy figures for the 1/8th scale Montague's Carriage . Carriage and railway. Which led to trying the live steam loco for the first time, it ran very fast and so i needed to build an inertial wagon to give it something to work against which led to a load of work. This was the final version of the gear train. and then it needed to be tested. It worked very well and so then needed to be dressed up a bit. Here is a Mars on a test run So even though I have not been active here I have been busy with model work all the same. Michael
  11. I remember that Model Dennis, I wanted to build a live steam version at one time in my earlier crazy modelbuilding habits. Michael
  12. A masterful job indeed Keith. The hull really does look spectacular. michael
  13. Ed looking at you photographs, give me pause, And you are only showing the lines! to think that sails had to be set amongst all that boggles my mind. beautiful work as usual. Michael
  14. Keith, superb work on both the binnacle and the rudder. I always enjoy seeing how you tackle and solve the little details that mark your background knowledge and skills. Also I am thinking that the hull would look absolutely stunning with the right white above the waterline with the varnished mahogany below. But that is only my opinion. Michael

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.
