  1. Thanks for the Wellcome and kind words mtaylor, Kevin, Cog, and GranfpaPhil I must tell you gentleman that I’m in awe of the build blogs and how many talented craftsman share there skills all I can say is Thank You All Just got to finishing the hull painting.
  2. Working on Deans Marine model Liberty Ship hope I’m going to get this right I have been making progress and will try to upload pictures. Well I see the photos weren’t a problem but adding captions under each photo is I would imagine the pictures explain the progress one other thing I would like to mention the last photo of the rudder is not scale as the kit cast resin rudder was a poor casting and the shaft was only 3/32 dia. Wire which I thought a little less then I preferred so it was replaced with one I fabricated. I know one of you will notice it doesn’t have the division half way down with right thrust added to correct fo the large prop torque on the full scale ship to save fuel but since I’m not going to cross the Atlantic I opted out on that detail.

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.
