  1. This is a Frankenstein build of parts from different parts of the world. It is roughly similar to a Gibson ES-125.
  2. There is great wisdom in that thought!! Vanguard and Syren are where I'd like to wind up. But for the moment, it is easier to get Model Shipways much cheaper.
  3. Thanks! Good luck with the Confederacy!! Thats alot of work! That's on my 'to build' list and I've just started to follow your journey! Looks good so far!
  4. They easy and quick - take some scraps and play with it. This build log and others have the details, but the short answer is coat the fabric in water-souble varnish and then score the fabric (with an awl, a nail, the tip of a scissor). If you get to it, let me know how it goes!!!
  5. Thanks for tagging along and sharing your wisdom. I literally aspire to do clean beautiful work like yours!! Rock on!
  6. I think I'm going to take the plunge and do a Model Shipways POB model. I'm open to suggestions!!! The next big jumps are: 1) planking a hull, and 2) working on a bigger (more daunting) project. I like to think if I get over those humps, I can declare myself to a middling ship modeller!!
  7. Chris, thank you!! I appreciate the gentle hand and the kind words you share with so many. It has made for a much more pleasurable entry to this nifty hobby for me!
  8. I’m calling her done!! There are few details to attend to, but won’t get to them for a while. Thanks for everyone’s help and support!
  9. Woo-woo!! She looks prefect (from a thousand miles away, at least)! Congrats!

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.
