  1. I´ve also rescribed the deck lines. since it was printed. I´ve sanded off the printed lines intended for the deck furniture for the Dapper Tom configuration The balsa wood Deck provided in this kit is kind of die cut and I used this "half cut" lines as guides for rescribing using a fine pencil.
  2. Good Morning! I hope that everyone on this site is ok in regard of the Covid-19. On my side with more time for my model. I´m continuing with the Deck, shaping the entrance for the Rudder.
  3. Template pieces is also balsa wood on one side is much softer to shape, but for bending with the Aeropiccola bender it doesn't work well. The wood of the Scientific kit America that I have in this blog was much better.
  4. The shape of the Dapper Tom´s Bow is more extended, but since the Balsa Wood (Like the wood from the Guillows Plane kits) is way much softer, it won´t be a big challenge to shape it.
  5. I have both plans, and I will begin with the hull shapes.
  6. Hi Lads I'm starting this build log of a conversion from the scientific Kit, the Dos Amigos, into another Baltimore Clipper, the Dapper Tom. I've got this kit from eBay and I also go the Model Shipways Kit in a much larger Scale from the same source. I like more cannons, and since the solid hull of the Scientific Kit is balsa wood, I'm going to make the conversion. I hope you enjoy this adventure.
  7. Thanks a lot Richard! I reallyenjoy your craftmanship working on this beatifull metal details.
  8. Gary, I´m following your Fannie Gorham's log. I like a lot Bluejacket Kits, so I will reserve a first row seat! Eduardo

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.
