  1. The revell Connie was one of my first models. This takes me back a bit. I think I still have my bag of spare parts, but it looks like the others have provided better solutions.
  2. I'll be following this topic as I too intend to start making a set of plans in fusion soon. I was thinking of using the sculpt environment to model the hull, then slicing it into sections using a plane cut. This would produce a perfect curve and Allow me to place bulkheads wherever I wanted along the hull. I'll probably be starting off with a cross section or battlestation model to get into the swing of things first though. Cheers: Point.
  3. Thanks for the welcome Mark and John. I need figure out what exactly I want to do, but I'm thinking of starting with just a small sectional model such as a battle station or cross section. My issue before was that I'd take on these big projects and never actually finish them.
  4. Hello, I am pointfiftytracer but people usually just call me point. I live in California's high desert and do fiberglass for a living. A few years ago I stopped making model ships. Now that I've gotten my life back on track, I'm hoping to get back into the hobby. I have several 3D printers and a laser cutter. I'm wanting to combine the two hobbies and possibly make a laser cut POF build if I ever get the time to draw up plans. If all goes well I'll be starting a build soon. Cheers. Point

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.
