  1. Happy New Year to everyone! It's been six months since my last post and I have not been at the bench as much as I would have liked, but thats life. Here is a current photo of the 80' ELCO. I must say she's very close to being completed. Cheers, Tim
  2. Greetings, I did get some work completed on the ELCO this weekend. I've started to install the small deck fittings along with the torpedo tube turntables. Below is a photo of some of the bow deck mountings, the other to shots of the boat are with the assembled parts setting loose on the deck. Cheers, Tim
  3. Greetings, Once again, I've stent too much time away from the bench so last week I decided to get back to it during a rainy weekend. I got tired of looking at the hull one color so I decided it was time to add the waterline. Cheers, Tim
  4. Greetings, I was able to get some more time in at the bench today which is always a good thing, because the prospect isn't too good this coming week. I finished mounting all the windows, mast, mast supports to the Day Cabin. The yard was glues to the mast along with the cleats on each side at the mast base. The Day Cabin hatch, non-skid, speed wrench and boat hook will be installed after a coat of primer has been applied, which will be at the mercy or the weatherman. I still have to attach the blocks at each end of the yard then thread the flag halyards through each. Cheers, Tim
  5. Greetings, Today was a rainy gloomy day here in Virginia Beach which means it's a good day to hit the building bench. I managed to get the Day Cabin about 80% completed. As you can see, I still have to paint the torpedo tubes. Our weather hasn't been warm enough to get out on the porch for that yet, hopefully in the next week or two. I included a shot with most of the toys placed on the deck just for kicks and a photo op. Cheers, Tim
  6. Greetings, I've been working in the ELCO just over two years now and I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Today I finished work on the four torpedo tubes, they still ned to be painted and the torpedo head mounted in the forward end of the tube but the hard part is finally behind me. The impulse chambers have been mounted along with all the brass photo-etch parts on the tubes, the hardest part was cutting and mounting the rings to the reinforcing plates, (see photos below). Reinforcing rings for torpedo tube still on the tree. Reinforcing ring in first step for sizing to fit the tube, the forward and rear rings are two different sizes. Test fitting reinforcing rings until final size is obtained. Torpedo tube complete with all brass and reinforcing rings attached. Cheers, Tim

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.
