  1. This should work. Why not? Although it would be an expensive waste of energy required to warm up an oven instead of using a propane torch.
  2. Cryptic question with no pictures. Expect no answers.
  3. See attached picture. This is how your keel stern should look like. I do not know other way to fix your issue.
  4. Your keel is now damaged and should be repaired. You have to restore keel to its original thickness at the border edge marked with red lines on my marked up picture.
  5. Look gorgeous! I am not familiar with plastic kits. Are items as rigging blocks and masts also plastic? Rigging threads look very convincing as well. Did you get them with the kit or purchased on your own?
  6. Message to business owners. At time when you start thinking you should not please you customers your business is lost.
  7. MDF. I will never buy a kit with MDF. Business owners should realize. Customers will not swallow cheap crap. Today there are options.
  8. So how all this first evolve? My understanding is original shipbuilders were making their ships without drawings. When pretty good ship hulls were created it appeared it would be beneficial to have some drawings made so good stuff can be recreated. Were not these curves made just for draftsman to make sure drawings are good?
  9. IMHO these tools are worth zero $. I easily will do same job with my hand.
  10. Hi Moab, it would be excellent if you could be adding some pictures or website links to your posts. Otherwise it is difficult to help. I do not know what item you refer to.

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.
