  1. your garboard is runing too far up the bow......... this will crowd the planks. look into more info on the garboard plank. and you will have to add drop planks where needed. but first get your garboard correct, then line it off.
  2. Beautiful, Doris......... Just simply Beautiful.
  3. Will meet again........ like the song say's...... farewell for now Dan.
  4. Try out ( sea salt ) you can find it at the grocery store, where they have the sesoning's........... the crystal's are all diferent sizes..... makes a nice effect.
  5. Don't feel like the lone ranger, I do it all the time............. seem's like.
  6. It look's like a real working winch ! Your an ACE at scratch building👍
  7. WOW ! were talking about a scratch build............. Great workmanship Gary.👍
  8. This ship has a grand history. Sad that it is rusting away...... should have been restored. Nice to see that you are building the model.
  9. That's some incredible work that you did on makeing the block's........... they look real.
  10. Glad to see you back, I really marvel at your work....... it's beautiful. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
  11. Looking at the pic's Jo......... their is a big distance between bulkheads at midship........ if the distance from bulkhead to bulkhead is 2" or more....... your planks will dimple and rise in those area's....... as you can see on the hull of my 1st build. you could make 2 bulkheads out of 1/8" balsa wood and that would give you the backing you need.
  12. I think she will return, and post photo's of the completed vessel, to close out her log.

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.
