  1. It is going to turn out just fine. As you add floorboards and seating, coats of paint, masts and rigging, she will look great.
  2. I am so looking forward to getting this model. Thanks Chuck. I wish I had your talent.
  3. I read the title “Professional Help Needed” and saw you were also a Chief Torpedoman so I said to self “Well at least he is asking”
  4. Probably the Byrnes with the sliding table top. Best on the market. Check sponsors links.
  5. Jeff try using black wire to rig your blocks, wrap, three tight twists and in a hook. Same way Chuck describes in Medway Longboat rigging. It works really well and once you get it down it is easier, less time consuming and no block breakage.
  6. And if you pick the wrong categorie a moderator will move it to the correct section.
  7. I attach a pencil to a dowel, dertermine the height needed and run it around the hull. Model Expo sells a waterline marker that is basically what I discribed.
  8. I always do all my standing rigging before adding yards and sails.

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.
