  1. Here is great video as answer to our question:
  2. It is not clear what is your problem. I suggest you to accompany your questions with pictures / sketches. What you want to align your ports against ? Are you cutting your own ports or you have ready port frames to align?
  3. I use acrylic paints only on models. Tiny size brushes are widely available. Smallest I got were sizes 0/20, 0/10, 0/5. I would not use oil paints as they dry forever, difficult to clean up or correct.
  4. Looking at seller sites where they sell logs of boxwood I was stunned with their high pricing. If logs are cut in sheets and strips for modelling they will cost by weight as gold. I had not chance seeing actual boxwood. Why boxwood is so popular among modellers?
  5. I entered your question into google search and immediately got many answers. here is the top one: https://www.rarewoodsusa.com/boxwood-lumber/
  6. I had seen same ad but could not figure out what to use this jig for.
  7. First question to ask oneself is "do I really need it?"
  8. Great site! Condensed Roman RR Gold is just what I would use but unfortunately they do not have it.
  9. Never mind. I fount this on YouTube. This is what I knew as a "carbon paper". I used it when I was a kid. Apparently here even a white colour variety exists. I believe this method would be usable with large letters about 10 mm tall.

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.
