  1. Hello! Will start soon the deck planking of the Model Shipways Niagara Brig. Interested in determining what pattern is used for the laying of the same. Any diagram/image/pics greatly appreciated! Thanks, Jorge
  2. I have a full size Dewalt table saw that I may use to cut down to manageable stock to then cut on the Byrnes saw. Thinking of adding the thickness sander later on...
  3. Thank you for the quick reply, Gents! Will update as soon as it arrives... Jorge
  4. Hello Gents! ramping up my tool selection... eagerly awaiting the arrival of a brand spanking new Byrnes Table Saw. Any good material/website on how to make the best of the equipment, including initial setup? Now pondering if and when I get the thickness sander... regards, Jorge
  5. Nothing whatsoever. Just lubricated everything, tightened all screws a tad, and that is it. maybe a Sherline in the future...
  6. Hello All! Couple of pics to show my new setup... had an old Dremel drill press, and found in Amazon a simple, interesting compound sliding table. First tryout was pretty much good. Unit drilled right smack in the middle after the proper table adjustments were made. Can’t beat this with a $60 dollar setup! Next test will be a keel notch mill cut, when I have some scrap hardwood to try out; will keep you posted! F25AFB13-4B9B-49DF-9A61-93E05C7D80DA.MOV
  7. Thanks, Jim! Quite a learning curve from the world I com, but I chose it due to the fact that since the hull has 3 layers, I thought it would be more forgiving and solid for a first time build... All was fun, until the final planking layer!
  8. Hello All! Long time lurker, finally a member and building my first wooden boat model. I have been a 1/35 military modeler for the past 43 years, and finally decided to make the jump to something that had really captivated me for so many years, the wooden ship miniature. As my first wooden ship kit, I have selected the Panart Lancia Armata; hull has been completed, and currently in the interior rib/structure process. As soon as I have some good pics and time to upload, will share with you for your critique. Pice below are merely phone pics. I have purchased already my second kit, a Model Shipways Pinnace designed by Chuck Passaro... it seems a much mode delicate build, so it will be a nice challenge as well. A pleasure, and glad to have finally made the jump! Regards, Jorge

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.
