  1. OK, How do I download a safe copy. About two years ago I tried to install Chrome from a Google site, it was infested with a virus. Trend Micro worked with me for two days to clean my desk top. Bob W
  2. I've had it all along until Sunday, still not there. The square on the lower right is empty. Using Explorer 11. Bob W
  3. Thanks Chuck, I only messed up one blank. And, Rustyj, and JToma, I appreciate the comments. Bob W
  4. Part 8 I had a lot of yard work since before the holiday, so just getting back to the workshop. I made the bolsters and fitted them along with the cap rails. Here they show the Starboard side done and the Port side inside marked out Port side outside mark out. View of the Bow. Overall view. Stern View. Inside stern View. I see much sanding in my future. Thanks everyone for the comments and Likes. Bob W
  5. Part 7 Well, I applied three coats of satin wipe on poly that was cut 50/50 with white sprits. She looks very good but, I may add one more. I decided to shape the stands while the hull is still attached to the base. Used 400 grit sand paper held down with double sided tape. Very carefully moved back an forth until I had a good fit. The fit at the Bow. The fit at the Stern. Frame centers removed. Fore to aft view. Starboard view. On to more careful sanding. Bob W
  6. Thanks CaptMorgan, Hope mine turns out at least as nice as Yours. Bob W
  7. JerseyCity Frankie, Thanks for posting these photos, I have really enjoyed them. Bob W
  8. Part 6 The hull was given a through wipe down with a fresh tack cloth. Then another wipe down with white sprits. I'm satisfied so far with the results. Port Side. Bow View. Stern View. Next will be three or four coats of wipe on satin poly cut 50-50 with white sprits. Bob W
  9. Thanks everyone for the "Likes". Chuck, This is the best designed "Kit" I've had my hands on. Challenging, but easy to work with. Thanks Bob W
  10. Thanks everyone for looking in and the "Likes". Part 5 Basic planking done, sanding next, then the wales will be fitted. Bow view. Stern view. Quarter Bow View. Starboard view with wales fitted and sanding started. Stern view with most of the tapering done. Bow view with tapering by chisel. More sanding yet to go. Then it's on to "nailing" the wales. More To Come, Bob W

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.
