  1. Tom, I went back into my log and found a more detailed explanation on entry #163 if that helps.
  2. Tom, I twisted rope coils by gripping the end of the rope with tweezers, soaking them in the glue solution, and turning them by hand on a glass plate and leaving them on the plate to dry. I then scraped them off with a razor blade when dried. If you get the right combination of glue and water, the solution will be tacky enough to keep the coils tight while they dry. You might also need to dab the coils with a paper towel to remove excess glue.
  3. Mike, I see that somebody got some quality work done in the shop after our meeting. Great stuff.
  4. Mike, I was ready to crown you a modern day Michelangelo. See and hear you this Saturday?
  5. Tom, Glad to see that you are safe and found some time to knock out some carronades. Nothing like some mind engrossing carronade rigging to take you away from the stress of the day. I forgot what a spanking newly rigged carronade looked like. They look fantastic.
  6. Elijah, Glad to see you are back at it. Your gunboat is exquisite. The staining looks spot on. I get nervous when I apply any finishes since a lot of hard work can be ruined in short order. You have met the challenge. I will follow along if you don't mind.
  7. I just wanted to send a shout out to all that have checked in to this gallery post and left salutations. There is no better compliment than to say that the model looks like a real ship. It is the essence of what amateur modelers strive for. Thanks.

  10. Mike, Looks great. I was just getting interested in your build report at our Shipwrights of Central Ohio virtual meeting when the feed shut down. Glad to see you are making steady progress

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.
