  1. Bob, Late to the party, but she is looking great! I hope you and the family are healthy and safe. Tim I.
  2. Bob, Your carronades turned out great! What did you send to Shapeways to get them 3D printed? Thank you, Tim I.
  3. Rusty, Thank you for bringing your barge to our ship group meeting this past Saturday. It was great to see it! - Tim I.
  4. Bob, It looks good. Are you going to do anything special with the lintels and the sills of the gunports? I left them as the directions called for. I think it is something that if I had to do it over again, I would dress them up a bit. Thank you, Tim I.
  5. Doug, Good luck on your new companionways. I really enjoy Philip Reed's book, with all the illustrations and depictions of extra detail. I have been picking at my PdN for close to four years now. It was the first ship kit I purchased, and over the years have built other ships, but this one continues to be a challenge for me. I am enjoying following your log, and am looking forward to seeing how your new companionways come out. - Tim I.
  6. Rusty, Is the line in the kit monofilament? If so, what "test" is it? Thank you, Tim
  7. Chuck, I am glad to see this project underway again. I am eager to build this when the kit becomes available! - Tim I.
  8. Bob, I used the tape. I cut out 1,800 plates, but only applied 840 to the hull of my PdN (I counted them for you). Of course, some were discarded because I was not happy with how they turned out (blemishes or how they laid on the hull). If I was to give you a round number, I would suggest planning for a 1,000. - Tim
  9. John, Pulling up a seat. I really enjoyed reading your Kate Cory build log, and am eager to see what you do with the Syren. Tim I.

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.
