  1. Sorry for the delay. I used primer for the pieces that were getting painted. I just glued right to the paint and removed the excess glue.
  2. I'll post a new picture later today
  3. FYI I noticed on your dry fit that you put the support post with the thin strips of wood covering them to far towards the bow. They start at the second hole from the stern and end up covering the boiler.
  4. I used regular old primer on mine. If your using a paint brush and not a spray gun you will have to apply a few coats to the metal parts.
  5. I used Minwax natural wood finish on my deck. Fairly easy to apply. Try some stains on the deck that's inside the engine compartment. You won't be able to see it on the finished model. I would recommend a natural color. Like Jarero points out the darker stains will bring out the grain in the wood and it won't look good in that small of a scale.
  6. Use super glue on the covers. Dont bother bending them over at first. Glue the one side of it to the bottom of the arch and hold in place with spreader clamps until dry. Make sure the cover is square to the archway. After the glue is dry, glue the rest of the archway and bend the cover over it. You may need to trim a little off the end of the cover. Reapply the clamps and let dry.
  7. Larry, I look forward to following your build log. I would repaint it now before adding anything else. I would recommend saving the scrap wood from the sheets incase you need to make any additional pieces. I was missing some of my square stock for the trim pieces and the scrap wood came in handy. Also, separate the model into a bunch of smaller builds. It helps with the assembly. Looks like you will be ready to build the boiler soon. Good luck! -Rob
  8. Old Salt, your turn to post a photo.
  9. Here is my finished model. I'll be glad to help you with any questions you may have. I have no idea what happened to Jarero.
  10. N. J. Fjord, almost a year after the Battle of Jutland on April 5th, 1917 she was sunk by German submarine UC-31, 40 miles ENE from Coquet Island.

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.
