  1. You're speeding along, this model took me 6 months to build! haha
  2. This was my first wood model and also used Hopeful's as inspiration. She makes a beautiful little model and gets alot of complements! Keep it up! Joshua
  3. AF, come down to Penns Landing at the Independence Seaport Museum on Saturday starting at 10A. The Philadelphia Ship Model Society is hosting a ModelCon. There will be ALOT of model ships, plus maybe you'll be interested to meet others who build ship models. Joshua
  4. Marc, That website appears to be down now, any chance you'd be willing to make a copy and send them to me? Joshua
  5. Joshua, thx for getting the books into the mail.

    BTW, the April boat show is well worth the ticket price, as it includes a continental breakfast, a superior buffet, access to the table top demos and more.    Check it out at our website - ctshipmodelers.org.         Duff

      I'm going, been there the last two years.  

  6. Bob, Thanks for your continued detailed build log - i've taken a break from my PdN so I can reference your log later Joshua
  7. I've used Sharpie Markers to paint things black with happy results.
  8. it's a shame all these postings aren't making it to the correct thread of "So where do you do yours" even though I'm guilty of it myself!
  9. Actually, I spend probably half my time cleaning and putting things away because I get anxious when things aren't organized and clean. lol
  10. I work mostly out of my garage but at times will gather small projects to work on a fold out table in the living room so I can be close to my wife and daughter. The first pic is a little older than the subsequent two. Here's the garage. Best, Joshua
  11. Zappto, Any chance we could see the ship illuminated in a dimmer lit room? It'd be awesome to see how much of her is lit up now. I'm excited to see this finished!~ Joshua
  12. Bob, I hear ya with the struggles of this model. I've actually started to crutch off of a Syren kit someone had started but didn't finish in both parts and instructions. Both ships are American built 2 masted vessels of similar size of the same period and the kits were the same scale. Chuck's instructions have a lot more pictures and details especially around rigging the bow spirit, etc. I've given up on the instructions that came with the PDN and am relying heavily on Chappelle's drawings and Reed's book. The Syren came with photo etched parts for gun ports that I plan to use. The Syren's instructions are on the MicroMark website for download in PDF. Josh

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.
