  1. Great build! This photo make me nervous for the model. Steve
  2. Thank you everyone for the support. I really like working with the Cherry. I think it might be easier to work with than the Maple I used on the English Pinnace. I’m considering this wood for the next project. (Scratch built Confederacy) Steve
  3. Looks like this blade worked for you as well. Was this another Proxxon blade? I am going to have to make gratings at some point soon. I do have the 1.1mm blade from Proxxon as well, but I have to make a jig for creating the gratings first. Steve
  4. I will clarify by including a photo of Chuck’s plan sheet. He explains his rationale for the design. I still have all the photos you sent me of the replica. I am still considering adding the scuppers if I can do it cleanly. Steve
  5. Looks great! I enjoyed watching this from when I first joined MSW. Steve
  6. Everything is coming along nicely! What type of saw blade did you use for the gratings? Steve
  7. Forecastle and poop deck are completed. I laid the planks first then created the hatches off model. Hatches were sanded from 1/16” to 1/32” after installation. Hatches were placed according to plan sheet two, but I think they are a hair too close according to a late look at the other plan sheets. Too much risk of damage to remove the hatch at this point. I guess I’ll be the only one who notices this on the model aside from you trained modelers. I sanded the rest of the unpainted model to knock off the shine of the wipe-on-poly. Have to make sure to do a better application of poly next time. Steve
  8. Totally agree with Mike on this. All great pints. No CA glue for a 6 year old. Larger scale wooden kit and short modeling sessions. They will want to play with it after. My daughter is 6. No ship modeling yet, but any LEGO she constructs she wants to play with. Steve
  9. Excellent work as always. I’ll take the extra jolly boat off your hands. 😎 Steve

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.
