  1. Such sad news, condolences to Family and Friends. R.I.P Dan, you will be greatly missed. Paul
  2. Welcome to MSW, Look forward to seeing you starting a build log. Paul
  3. SorryI Can't help but someone will I am sure. Are the sheets of plans not to scale? And you can take the measurements from them. This is how I get the measurements for my builds. Paul
  4. I did think about normal stairs myself Bob. You and yours keep safe. Paul
  5. I personaly use primer. I use straight forward sanding sealer if I need to. I Would not prime or seal where the plates are glued on as bare wood will allow the copper to adhere better. This also goes for any areas wherePE will be atached. Paul
  6. Work is progressing well. There are a few mistakes to the model. The spiral staircase did not fit too well, but is mostly hidden so not too bothered. I measured the distance of the posts using the rails. This worked fine, but when I glued them all in place I was out by just 1mm or so. This of course meant that the posts are not a perfect fit by the third deck. Also I glued the top and bottom stiffeners that hold the rails incorrectly. I have put them width up on the second deck by mistake. this has been corrected on the third deck. I was left with a choice of stripping the whole lot down and starting again or excepting that it is wrong. As it does not really show that much I can live with it and will keep as is. Paul
  7. Welcome to MSW JC, I was thinking the same with regards to th nails. They do pull you in and you miss the great job you have done on the hull. Keep up the Good work. Paul

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.
