  1. Just found the board this morning and registered to do some research, along the way I found your build thread here. Amazing work, and am looking forward to seeing the finished product. I did have an idea for your head door hinges, but you've already moved beyond that point! I was thinking using a pin vice to drill a small hole in the top of the door and the door frame, as well as in the bottom of the door and the deck. A bit of wire glued into the holes you drill on the door would hold it in the door frame/opening and allow it to pivot as if it were actually hinged. Hope I am explaining it clearly enough! 


    I also saw your garage door and if you replace that refletivix foil with some foam board it will work better fighting the heat. It's about $15 for a 4'x8' sheet at one of the big box stores. I've been researching the same project for my garage since it does not have an insulated door and it can be unbearably hot in there! I left NY about 6 years ago, you'd think I would be used to the heat down here by now.

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.
