  1. Y.T. - my bender also measures 500 ohms,but the label says 50 watts. I can tell you it gets a lot hotter than any hair curling iron I have seen! Mark
  2. I have that same plank bender & have bent 3x8mm walnut with it. Maybe yours is defective? Best tool purchase I ever made! Mark
  3. Ages of Sail also has a good selection of fittings. Bluejacket Shipcrafters also has many fittings. Mark
  4. Thank you Ferit - I have also quietly followed your very nice Berlin build in the background - excellent work. Mark
  5. I do not know if the decorations can be purchased separately. Contact piratepete007,a member of this forum, and he can answer your question. Or try contacting Euromodel directly by email. Thank you. Mark
  6. Wow - that is quite the kit! My Constructo Prince is listed as 1/61 scale & 35 inches long - seems a little short for that scale. Does yours have a length listed? Mark
  7. Beautiful job,Vince! All those sails really make it stand out. I know what you mean by difficult - I don`t know if I could have done mine without Pete`s help & advice. By the way,I also have the Constructo Prince sitting in my closet. It`s not the greatest as far as accuracy,but could be made presentable with a bit of research & scratching. Thanks much for the compliment! Mark
  8. I also have that plank bender - most useful tool I have ever bought. Mark
  9. Hi everyone. Progress has been slow,but I have got the fore & main sails rigged(except for the tacks). The mizzen topsail is done also. Now I need to make a bunch of rope coils to hang on the belaying points before adding the lateen yard due to space to get my hands in getting limited . Thanks for looking in. Mark

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.
