  1. Dennis, you're almost done, she is looking great Murphy Moments not withstanding. Gotta love you some Duddley Do Right. Druxy, thanks for the tip about spatter a few weeks back, just gotta look at things differently. Sam
  2. Great to see you back on this Lady Dennis. The PE looks real good, adds a lot. Round about story; I learned just last night Better Half's father served on DE 393 Haverfield from shakedown through the end of WW2. Named after Ensign James Wallace Haverfield who is entombed (assumed) on the Arizona. Sam
  3. Jo, That look great, you have done very well indeed. For masking many here like the Tamiya tape. there is also Frog tape, might be a different name in your land. probably gorF since you-all live upside down. Our scenic painters use a 3m tape found in automotive paint stores: http://autops.co.nz/tape-masking-products/676-3m-233-3mm-masking-tape.html That site is NZ not your world but you should be able to find it if interested. Another trick I see them use to stop bleed through is to apply some comparable clear before laying on the color. Try it on some scrap first to get a feel for it. And BTW, my fingers dont bleed, Better Half does the house cleaning..... I better go nor before I get hurt. Sam
  4. Sorry to hear about the warp Dennis, looks like you got it straightened out though. 31 years, wow, that is rare in our generation. Congrats. Sam
  5. J, Lots of progress since I looked in last, looking good. Looking forward to your cleats, you tackled them differently that I did, I might like your way better. Sam
  6. Great to see you back at it Rich! That is one great Dr you have there, if I ever end up living in AZ i am looking him up as my Doc. Work s looking good, especially with limited use of your hands. great inspiration for not giving up. Sam
  7. Hello patient strangers! Made it back for a bit. Lots going on in my personal life; work related mostly, nothing bad. Better Half and I are both on really screwy schedules, resulting in the usual story of no time/energy to play. You have all heard my lamentations before. We did take a cruise to Alaska last month, that was a great trip and we actually ended up in the ports advertised this time; no hurricanes! I haven't been a TOTAL slug since though. I have decided not to mount the gaff from earlier, most likely I will look for a way to lash that and a couple of failed masts to the deck. I started tinkering with the Fore Yard, results below. Today's task is to work on the iron work for the stuns'l yards. Now, off to see what the rest of ya'all have been up to. Sam
  8. Getting caught up here Jo, Your planking looks quiet good. Give yourself an Atta-Girl! Sam
  9. Great work as always, where do you get your cup burs? I am so stealing that!! Sam
  10. This weekend I promise Carl. explanation will be in my build. Sam
  11. Holy Cr@p, RIch! Sre you going to be ok?? Three weeks in burn unit sounds rather serious, what on earth happened?? nYou say the can blew up, was there a pilot light nearby? that happened to a guy I used to work with years ago, he was cleaning contact cement off of a counter he just installed and he didnt shut off the waterheater pilot, burned himself and the customeres kitchen. Hope your going to be ok and will be back at your build soon. Sam
  12. All righty then Carl, you showed us the carrot, where is the build?? Or did Gregs talk about Bears and Roos and Sharks give you the nighttime willies? Sam
  13. They live in the cities ...???  They are called politicians and bureaucrats in the Northern Hemisphere Carl. Sam

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.
