  1. Slog, Thanks for the advice. After I posted my article, my brain kicked with your suggestion. Thanks again.
  2. I recently bought from E-bay a ship model from Model Expo the 48 inch long model of USS Constitution. I have seen from different sources that copper plates can be installed in the lower half of the hull. I have looked at the plans and having a problem figuring out how many square inches of hull I would have to cover with copper plates. Is there anyone out there in the Model Ship World that has done what I want to do that has an answer for me? I believe I have it figured out that 5X15mm plates would be used. Any held I could get would be greatly appreciated.

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.
