  3. Guy,what amazing work.I never tought about a mill but it looks like you did in a couple hours what took me a couple of weeks.Nice work. I guess I should put a mill on my "I wish I had the money list".It is a very long list Best Regards; Larry
  4. Hello Everyone.I have been working on aft deadwood #4.Why you ask? I decided that if I could not make this part and get it close to what it should look like,Then I should quit and take up plastic models. Here is the results,made of maple this time. Here Is where I had most of my problem.Getting this to 3mm.I finally did and this end will be covered. The bottom part has to be tapered also to fit the keel.The top and the knee was a problem,the only cutout I could find was the side view of with the dead wood.Wangs pictures did not show this knee being used so I tapered it also. I am happy and can continue building wooden ships.Few more pictures Larry
  5. Guy,I am going to try that thickness sander.Nice job. I have a drill press sander but I'm allways looking for something new. I just aquired a disk and long board sander.I'm looking for some way to control the sawdust. It makes a lot and makes it fast. Yes I am on the western side of Wi.Been here about 25 years.When it snows in May it is time to leave. Larry
  6. Hello Guy,Roberts, Wi is a very small town about 10 miles from the Minnesota border and about 30 miles from the Twin Cities. I decided to remake the deadwood again.It did come out better.This time I used maple and the finish is much nicer.I will post some pictures to night or tomorrow. Larry

  8. Hello Guy,I did the aft dead wood 3 times.I have it ok but not the best.The mohogany is to soft to get a really good edge.I hope you do a better job than I did. Best regards Larry
  9. Hello everyone,I have made this 3 times and hopefully the last. Thank you Christian for your help. A little more sanding and on with the show Best Regards Larry
  10. Hello Everyone,I'm having a heck of a time with my stern deadwood. Christian here are a few pictures of my problem. This is a picture of the of the keel which measures 6.5 mm and the rear of the deadwood which is 3mm On the 3 piece steps the center wood would be 1mm and the steps at 1mm each at the rear of the deadwood.How do I make the keel and deadwood agree Here is the way I did this. Thanks for any help Larry

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.
