  1. Okay after quite a while of waiting I came across a very good deal on a nice German made proportional divider just got it today. it is made really well so I told myself wait a minute how do you use this thing in this hobby?. I looked on here found some uses but still not enough info for me, I went online through Google and other search engines mainly found info on their use in the artistic uses not much in wooden ship building. is there a instructional on the use of this tool at least a more precise one just for this art form? doc
  2. this has helped me a great deal in some of my other endeavors also mainly electronics. doc
  3. Thanks for the video i have gotten it for later use keep up the vids we can all use tips and tricks. Doc
  4. okay yes you can download each individual page and do as i do, save it in word and build up and save your logs, depending on your word processor i use word, you right click on the page you want click select all, right click again and click copy. open word or similarword processor select paste special. you can do this for all the pages but it is very time consuming especially if the log you are trying to get is very long. i have been known to spend many hours gathering logs for my edification. what i was saying most if not all of the forums i go to have the ability to show the entire log via a button which loads the entire log. then you do as i suggested and it saves the whole log at one time. this is more efficient nd needs to be done on this site IMHO doc
  5. need a better way to just download the whole log with pics etc. so we can back up our logs in case of a crash or such. other sites have the ability to "show all" of build logs and you can save the whole sheebang that way. .admins what do you say? doc
  6. try for a finish of bees wax and turp i plan tp use it on my bass wood as it leaves sort of a dull finish unless you buff on it and it seals the wood. somehere on the site someone turned me onto it had a recipe of sorts i think it was Edt. you will get depending on the bee wax used as there are many types and colors tou will basically get the same color you have but with protection from the elements and its cheap. doc
  7. very impressive I have had this one in mind for a number of years but I have the triton to finish. I would appreciate any pics, docs you can post and or send to me on your build might make my mind up on her. doc

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.
