  1. Chuck: I was thinking about your comment on 1/4" plywood and where to find it. I have used Rockler and Woodcraft in the wood industry for modelers. Then there are the houses around that sell plywood for the scroll saw people, as I have delved into scroll saw work also. Just a suggestion. Cheers, Bill Palmer
  2. Nils, like so many others I'm very impressed with your build. I was wondering how you applied metal to the wooden hull? I'm very interested in how I might apply rivets to the hull of a pre WWII ship. Did you apply rivets or were they part of the metal panels applied? Hopefully, you might have ideas on how I might do this ......... without the use of metal panels? just very well done! Cheers, Bill Palmer
  3. Chuck: Which method of planking are you referring. Do you know which post number you talk about your method, within your build? Thanks, Bill
  4. Al .......... I'd like to ask you a few questions about 2D, 3D, DXF, PDQ, ABC and etc, etc. But I don't think it appropriate on you Triton log? We should pick a "Slot" for such. Someone tell me where and I'll go right there and start asking .......... That is, .... If you don't mind? Cheers, Bill Palmer ---member SMA and NRG
  5. Doris I have sent you a PM about making flags. This is Just to let you know. Bill Palmer

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.
