  1. Try heating it with a hair dryer or heat gun. I have had some success with polyurethane resin and whatever type is used in the fiberglass kits.
  2. If this link has been posted, I missed it. https://www.southernmuseum.org/ I have no idea how accurately the restore was done.
  3. PDF from Andrea. https://www.andreaeurope.com/descargas/AP 030I TEXTS ENG.pdf
  4. A little more in this area including staging and lighting. http://www.boxdioramas.com/sheperd-paine
  5. Have a look through this pair's site. There used to be some "how to's" but their work is top drawer and worth the time. http://www.mb-miniatures.com/pages/en/home.php
  6. It has been a while since I have painted a figure and know there are a number of specialty forums out there but these are the only ones I can recall. Worth browsing through them if the subject interests you. https://www.planetfigure.com/ http://www.timelinesforum.com/
  7. Some pretty talented painters at; https://www.planetfigure.com/ http://www.timelinesforum.com/
  8. I believe that is a groove in the blade to fit the scalpel handle they are made for.
  9. I appreciate the information.. I have had the lathe and other tools for years and have never used them. Now that I am slowing down I am turning to ship models and in that, looking at the tools again. A rabbit warren of distractions.
  10. I was excited to find this thread figuring that these items would be very useful. Then I did an uncharacteristic thing. I measured the chuck jaws opened to what I am setting as the maximum and these blocks are too big. Do these gizmos come in a smaller form?
  11. Agreed on the Bard Parker but I found the spine a problem in some cases when cutting mould rubber.
  12. Thanks. I used to lay it on egg crate foam. That kept it from stabbing my thigh or foot when it rolled off the desk.
  13. I used scalpels for years to cut moulds and had a variety of handles. I found the best fit of the snap on handles was in using the Swan Morton blue handle. I also used a "screw on" handle but can't remember the name. It held the blade the best but was round and tended to roll on the table. If I can find it I will take a picture.

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.
