  1. O C the model is coming along great, it will be a real tribute to your Dad, I would not worry about a few flaws in the paint, I think they will be hardly noticeable when done and I'm sure after a few missions she would have had a few scratches and dents. Keep up the good work, Best, Ed
  2. Beautiful work as always, question, do you have a set of rigging plans for Oneida, if not what sources are you using as a guide? Best, Ed
  3. OC , thank you for sharing this great story, started me to think of my father , he was a final inspector in Stratford Ct on the Corsair met my mother there, Thanks again Best, Ed
  4. Ron, is it your intention to fully rig it, I know way back when you indicated that lack of space might prevent you from rigging it but maybe with the new home you have more room would really like to see her fully rigged perhaps a new course "The fully rigged model ship" Best, Ed
  5. Ron ,so happy to see your great build continue, I look forward to many new lessons from you, almost like a course in How To Build a Model Ship Best Ed
  6. just a suggestion but if you want to learn how to plank you might look at the NRG half hall planking project you get a basic education in how a POB ship is built and a great planking education by Toni it really is a learning experience and a fun project and if you have questions help is just a click away Best Ed
  7. Jesselee, you might want to check out Chuck's method of making flags from tissue paper, I believe he explains it in his log on the Cheerful but if you do a search you will find that many have used that method, by the way, followed you build from the beginning great job and thanks for all the tips along the way Best, Ed
  8. Ron, you sure are a busy man, guess it keeps you out of trouble, I enjoy your posts always informative Ed
  9. Ron, I think the idea of a hinged platform for the motor will work just fine, I have a vintage Inca table saw that has that set up the weight of the motor holds it down, it does have a treaded rod with a wing nut and washers to hold it tight, but I hardly ever remember to check it , when I do, it needs to be tightened but the saw works well without it being secured the weight of the motor holds it down , motor is a 1-1/2 HP Dayton. Shop is really coming along, I wish I had that much space Ed
  10. if you go to the NRG home page under articles there is a article Simple Hall Planking that has a section on fairing the hull, also if you use the search feature using fairing as the search word there are numerous articles and just a reminder the NRG just released a project Half Hull Planking Project by none other than Toni, who was the first to respond to your inquiry, just got mine last Friday and highly recommend it, Good Luck you will definitely find the information you need Ed
  11. Just ordered via Paypal, I believe this is a great service to those of us less experienced in the hobby, and quite in the dark on planking Thanks again, Ed
  12. I now only work in 1:48 mainly due to my age (72) and eyesight, I find the larger size much easier to handle, and you can add more detail, downside is at this scale you will mostly find smaller type ships and the selection is rather limited I am currently working on the Lively and have the Halifax on hand for my next build both from the Lumberyard Ed
  13. there should be a brass rod included in the kit 1/32" x 6" for use as the axels, the triangular piece the butt of the cannon rests on is the quoin no material is supplied for that piece and must be fabricated by the builder, very small piece, you could omit it and the casual observer would never miss it Ed
  14. Ron, thank you for the info and the pictures, you really laid out all the options Ed

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.
