    Teak veneer

    Here in Oklahoma and Texas, USA there is a store called Woodcraft they sell Teak Veneer. I am sorry this dosen't do you any good. https://www.woodcraft.com/products/teak-veneer-2-x-8-10-mil
  2. I know this is an old thread but thought it may still be of interest to some. There is a guy from Germany who lives in the Philippines that does commission work. And has a YouTube video that demonstrates bending planks across grain. The whole video is very good but the bending part start at about the 3 min. mark. Link:
  3. Bingo! It works now. Don't know what sin I was guilty of to be blacked listed to begin with. At any rate it works now. Thanks Dubz
  4. I still can't get in from my ChromeBook. It says "excess denied". It works on my Windows PC through a VPN but, if I log out of the VPN it says "excess denied". A VPN uses a fake IP address.
  5. Kurt, That is a good idea, but I was completely locked out and couldn't even see the homepage. I had to use a VPN service to get back in and make these post.
  6. I had forgotten my password and after several tries I was completely locked out. And couldn't even get back in to find any help. I eventually got back in via a VPN services to make this post. At first I thought I was banded for some reason. I see that I haven't been banded for some reason. I even emailed Chuck at his company and had another member of another model building forum to contact MSW to ask on my behalf. But never heard anything back. I hope there isn't others that just give up leave. RussR
  7. I don't know what A2 and A4 is. Yes, sometimes the instructions will be out of sequence. That is why it is best to read through the instructions to get an idea how it is to go together and decide the best way to go about it. I never use nails because I found out the hard way that you run the risk of splitting a bulkhead. One could pre drill them but still the risk is there. Like not drilling them straight or missing the mark all together. But that is the builders choice. I am sorry you feel that way. I am a relatively new myself and have found great support here at MW. But I don't expect it to come right away. RussR
  8. That is a good idea. It is easy to build a huge stash that you will never build. I did that and decided to sell everything except what I was working on. It is hard to do when someone is offering a big discount. RussR
  9. I did the same thing. I just left it off until later in the build before I glued it back on. RussR PS: If this is your "big mistake", stand by for more to come. I've had some real "whoopers".
  10. Thank you for the reply. I have to but, my experience has been that Sharpie Markers will bleed over to the adjacent areas.
  11. Does anyone use paint pens for detail work on wood or metal parts? If so, what is the recommended brand/type? I am concerned about the paint bleeding over. Thanks, RussR
  12. There was four solded on Ebay (USA): Aug. 12, 2018 Aug. 16, 2018 Aug. 29, 2018 and the last one Oct. 06, 2018 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Aeropiccola-Torino-Ralt-RA-5-Plank-Bender-Molding-Iron-Model-Boats-Ships-Italian-/392139232350?hash=item5b4d51d45e%3Ag%3AS-oAAOSwy2pbt7ps&nma=true&si=hOz8Y6lAHha6lnImNBzgRglaE1o%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 One has to be patient for when one comes along.
  13. Thanks, Kurt. This is probably what I am doing wrong. And I am not following up with a water rinse after the acetone soak. RussR

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.
