  1. I use blue painters tape and have never had an issue.
  2. Welcome Chris. Having built the Medway Longboat Myself I see no reason a beginner like yourself could not build it and come out with a beautiful result. The beauty of it is Chuck is always available to answer questions and there are quite a few build logs and builders available. I say go for it!
  3. For those who may be interested I printed the three pages of friezes the other day just to check colors and take a planking break. Been planking for over a month and probably got at least a week left. The following Vallejo Model Air acrylic paint matches perfectly with the friezes as printed on MY printer: the Lighter Blue shade = 71.113 Intermediate Blue the Darker Blue shade = 72.721 Magic Blue
  4. I removed the three bow planks on each side and I am redoing. The one I finished This morning has no gap. If that doesn’t work I’ll try the wood filler. Got to keep a closer eye on detail.
  5. Beautiful work Chuck. My planking is looking 100% better with the side bending technique BUT I still get these micro cracks between planks in the bow. I’m hoping the won’t be noticeable when the entire hull is closed up and you can’t see light
  6. Thank you Rusty. I am leaning towards staining it as the Boxwood carvings seem to just fade into the hull. I have the Fruit wood gel stain Chuck recommended so I’ll do a test with The Fruitwood and Oak Gel stains on some scrap and see how the carvings look.
  7. I junked my fair a frame after about one half hour. The HobbyZone Slip is a good piece of kit.
  8. Jack is the person Chuck Passaro had make his CNC carvings for the Winchelsea. He is located in China.There is a link somewhere on MSW that links you to Jack so you can order the carvings in Boxwood. I am sure Chuck can provide you the link. These are beautiful highly detailed carvings.
  9. My boxwood carvings arrived today. OMG Beautiful! The detail in these tiny pieces is exquisite. For others who order their boxwood carvings from Jack you will be happy,happy,happy. I am continuing on with planking.
  10. Take a look at these guys: https://www.casesforcollectibles.com/1981.html very reasonable
  11. I don’t believe you could get a uniform look doing it by hand, you could try but keeping the same tightness and lay would be very difficult. Chuck’s serving machine isn’t that expensive and works well.

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.
