  1. Scratch plank-on-frame, mostly Cherry.
  2. Very nicely done, equipment details add to the build. For a first build your work is impressive, especially with your hand problem. May it be the first of many more boats and ships - Hal
  3. I love your videos, I have been building early U S naval ships off and on for almost 50 years, but I always find something of interest in your work. I have a question, in one of your videos you were making thin dowels. The tool you were using, did you make it or did you buy it somewhere? You are doing an excellent job on your ship. I greatly enjoy watching your work. Thank you for posting it. - Hal
  4. Quik Note to Steve- I just hope there is enough of Adams bottom is left to make a plan of her shape, maybe too much to hope for.- HAL
  5. It will prove interesting _IF_ it is true, time will tell. It would be an important find. My own interest would be for someone to see what if anything is left of the Adams in Maine. Its location is known.
  6. Hello Anthony, I think it depends on if they have it in stock. I've ordered from them a number of times. Last order took 3 weeks, but most of the time order shipped in about a week. Their service is very good and seem to be nice people-- Hal
  7. Wonderful work. I like your thickness planner. The canvis covering brings back memories, The boats I ran had that on the fore decks, lasted a long time, The boats were built by Wilcox in Conneticut. Your cutter is coming out great!--Hal
  8. Coming along nicely. Just a note that there were only 30 cannons onthe gun deck. The Bow Ports were Bridle Ports used for working the anchors and weren't armed. The two front guns would be on the spar deck as chase guns. following along--Hal
  9. The stern looks like the Syren's in the Tripoli painting, Eagle and false windows. My Syren about 35 years ago, some day have to go back and rig her--
  10. Doc, I like your center finder, especially the price. I need to make one. Thanks- Hal
  11. Hi Michael, From what I understand, the american navy strapped a thimble to the yard and attached the thimble of the block with another timble, there is a name for this method, but I don't remember it right now. The americans were inovative in their rigging and europe tended to follow . -Hal

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.
