  1. Hope you can see it they are from my book part list..(8 pages,THE LAST IS THE FIRST ONE)
  2. Of course, the position on different ships may vary, but if you do not have more detailed information, perhaps this exquisite execution by Dan Vadas can help you ... page 3, post # 68 .
  3. Precise detail in the construction and the general shape of the ship is excellent, a pleasure to follow this log..grande maestro!
  4. Taking into account the dimensions of the gunports that you have already built and so that on the other side of the ship they are the same, a wood with the measurements will help, in addition to building them at level. (images by Zarkon)
  5. Better to do it now that you are in an early stage, just take your time ...
  6. If you see the marks that you have made, the measurements are different (from high to low towards the bow), unfortunately the way you have done it, if you don't want to start again, to save the work you should cut the planks as they get closer to the bow in an almost triangular shape .. If you see the line in black that would be the way to continue and thus be able to place them without breaking planks. Another method would be to use drop plank (Chuck's image for his Winchelsea) as shown in the image or use the fan for planking. plankingfan.pdf
  7. Exactly Jim, as Chuck says it should not be seen as a museum piece, the idea is to have fun, a good time in construction, this is a hobby that we have for personal passion ... do not quit sailor!
  8. I am 54 years old and due to my immune system I never had a cold or flu, also my body can recover in less time than other people, for example, I had to go to the dentist on Monday and I had a wisdom tooth removed, today Thursday, my gum It is 95% closed. I'm not perfect of course, my hair has fallen out over the years (I only have it on the sides of my head) and due to a car accident I have a herniated disc in the lumbar part, my Achilles heel let's say ... so we can say that God gives and God also takes away .. In our forum there are many people with more than 60 years and although it is a myth that this virus attacks only old people ... (nobody is free to contract it, children, adolescents have the same chances) ... I think that the Information is never superfluous, especially if there is already a precondition in the person, who is most vulnerable. BACKGROUND COVID-19, originally known as 2019-nCoV, is a strain of a large family of coronaviruses which can be transmitted from animals to humans. It was first identified as the cause of a respiratory illness outbreak in Wuhan, China in late 2019. On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. SYMPTOMS COVID-19 symptoms are similar to the cold or flu, and may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to the virus. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention. Be vigilant as severe cases may lead to pneumonia, kidney failure or death. Mild symptoms may include: Fever Cough Shortness of Breath Sore Throat Runny Nose & Sneezing Muscle Aches & Pain Chills & Fatigue Impaired Liver & Kidney Function HIGH RISK Those at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19 include seniors, and people who have serious pre-existing medical conditions including: Cancer Diabetes Heart disease High Blood Pressure Lung Disease People at higher risk for serious illness and even death from COVID-19 should take extra precautions like: Avoiding Crowds Practicing Social Distancing Washing Hands Often Staying Away from Sick People If COVID-19 is nearby, STAY HOME High risk people should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild. PREVENTION The most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 are to frequently clean your hands, cover your cough with the bend of elbow or tissue, and maintain a distance of at least 3 feet from people who are coughing or sneezing. The WHO and CDC advises the following prevention methods: Wash Hands Frequently Scrub hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds for visibly dirty hands or an alcohol-based hand rub frequently for non-visibly dirty hands. Practice Respiratory Hygiene When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water. Maintain Social Distancing Maintain at least 3 feet distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus. Avoid Touching Eyes, Nose & Mouth Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself. Clean & Disinfect Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces daily in household common areas such as: tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks. Animal Proximity Precautions Practice general hygiene measures when visiting farms, live animal markets, wet markets, animal product markets or contact with wild animals. Ensure regular hand washing with soap and potable water after touching animals and animal products. Animal Consumption Avoid eating raw or under-cooked animal products. Handle raw meat, milk or animal organs with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices. Mild Symptoms If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel to hard-hit areas, still seek medical care and be sure to carefully practice basic respiratory and hand hygiene and stay home until you are recovered. Seek Medical Care Early If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early and tell your healthcare provider if you have traveled to an area where the virus has been severely impacted, or if you have been in close contact with someone who has respiratory symptoms. TESTS & TREATMENT Testing If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop symptoms such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice. They will decide whether you need to be tested. People at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild. Treatment To date, there is no vaccine and no specific antiviral...
  9. Shapeways 3D printing maybe is your solution,check the site.. https://www.shapeways.com/create https://www.shapeways.com/marketplace?type=product&q=figurehead
  10. It is really difficult to answer or find words, as others have said, I understand what you are going through since my sister suffers from the same thing ... but fortunately we will have your legacy in this forum, your knowledge will be preserved and I am sure they will be very much Help for others ... I will not say goodbye, your presence will be with us until together we sail in other seas ...

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.
