  1. From California to Florida, Ages of Sail charge $8 shipping and they have iron nails,pack of 200 (10mm) $1.59.
  2. There are two kinds of quebracho, white and red.. It is a wood much appreciated for the construction of furniture, which will last for hundreds of years. Also the red is used to make the railroad sleepers. Watch out for the red powder as it is very toxic.. The bark of white quebracho is used as medicine. There are many species of trees in South America that are beneficial to health, we know for centuries thanks to the indigenous population. When the Spaniards arrived in South America and discovered the quebracho they took tons of this wood because they used it for different parts of construction of ships, especially the keel.. In Europe they used another kind of wood that left it submerged for years (in some cases 100 years), with the Quebracho reduced the wait.
  3. I am following the construction process and it is really very good, where did you get Quebracho wood? Since it is a tree originating in South America (Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia) The wood is very high density and from there comes its name.. Quebracho/quiebrahacha/axe-breaker..
  4. Excellent work Amalio! the perfection makes the master...
  5. I remember when I built the CWM and put the rudders inside the boat, three harpoons, ropes and six oars, a bucket, a small flag on its post to mark the dead whales.. And I did it in the six boats, of course this in the modeller to detail even more equipment. As to how the rudder was secured a clue could be the AL kit.
  6. Welcome aboard Anna ! I like your painting, it looks the same to the puzzle that I'm putting together..
  7. I'm using Dremel Micro (I bought it in December 2014 ) and in my opinion is amazing for small jobs,you can use drill bits from 51mm to 3.2mm. Like I said is for small jobs,it comes with 5-speed, 1 or 2 you can have a great accuracy. Speeds up 1 or 2 is too much for this small Dremel and is not recommended to use it at high speeds for a long time. For me is a great tool and I recommend it for the type of work that we do,after you try it,you fall in love (tip: ideal for round dogs nails after cutting)

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
