  1. The 1/4 poplar boards you can get at Home Depot are pretty decent.. Good to hear you got a saw.. One of the small one's? Byrnes or other?
  2. I have been happy with the cherry from ModelExpo .. They have some 1/4 square.. Of course, if you get a saw, cutting from sheets will be a better value..
  3. FWIW, I have found this adapter to work with the 1/2" arbor on Malco blades and the Proxxon FET Saw Blade Adapter Malco has $100 min order requirement, but their 3 " .02 blade for $15.43 is a lot better blade than the Proxxon branded blades..
  4. I really don't agree with that... I get a kick out of all kinds of businesses that advertise " Inventory Reduction Sale ", or " Overstocked Sale ".. You don't seem to have that problem..
  5. Try both and see what happens.. It would be hard to know without having the wood in hand.
  6. If you want to go the mini route, this is the same as the Proxxon at about half the price.. ABEST Improvement High Speed Mini Miter/Cut-Off Saw Mini Table Saw Mini Bench Saw with 2 Blades
  7. What dimensions do you need. and what sources have you looked at? Just curious..
  8. Is there a chance the paint will bleed into the wood and not just show up on the edge?
  9. I think they look good in your pic.. What I feel is important on a model, it that it doesn't look too close to upper or lower port sills..
  10. PS Here is a post I made with an image of my method.. Just running the pencil over the exposed edge corner is all that is needed. The actual face of the edge will never be seen.
  11. It is also easy to do after the plank is glued in place. Doesn't have to be soft lead either, which is more prone to smudging.
  12. Have you looked at these? Style Line (STY0701) 6 Piece Soft Sanders Set
  13. Chuck, take a look at this from another topic.. Agamemnon: the Darch Model This guy is obviously a very competent model builder, but I swear the blocks and deadeyes look like yours.. HMS Agamemnon Any chance he is a customer of yours?

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.
