  1. Very nice job, I am currently building the same ship, and also have just started the planking, I will follow along for tips and info on the planking as I do have many questions, Ed
  2. Hi, I am new to model ship building, I recently retired, after being semi retired for 5 years (worked almost as many hours semi retired) but now I have time, I am working on the MS Rattlesnake, and have the MS Morgan on the shelf, I plan to modify or kit bash, also plan for the short term to paint. I can see that it will be necessary to have a supply of wood on hand, looking for suggestions on what thicknesses are the most common and also suggestions on quantities. I have a vintage Inca #159 model table saw, certainly not a Barnes, but it is fairly accurate. Thanks for suggestions and comments. This is a great site, I cannot believe the amount of information available. Ed
  3. WOW, what a layout, how many years do you have invested in the project, the model ship is also a great work, Many Thanks for sharing from one Stratfordite (?) to another Ed
  4. I am sure these little set backs are frustrating, but the finished product is what is important , it will be a real work of art when all is said and done, great workmanship as always. Ed
  5. It looks like you are going to put the new workbench to good use, waiting to see the results Ed
  6. that is a beautiful piece of furniture, almost too nice to use as a work bench, I am sure you are much neater, less accident prone, and more careful than I am , enjoy Ed
  7. Nice set up, seems to have a lot of natural light , enjoy! Ed
  8. agree with the other opinions works great for thin softer woods, you might also look at their TruSander, I use that more than the chopper ED
  9. Ron, surprised to hear that the top is only 1/2" thick, other than that it looks very sturdy, do you have an idea on the weight of the bench, sure you will get a lot of use out of it Ed
  10. Not a good situation, but it would be a shame to use such inferior material on a great build, hope the problem is resolved quickly, know you are itching to get going Ed
  11. three years but it has to be one of the best I have seen, keep up the excellent work I can only dream of someday creating something that good Ed
  12. Awesome job, very detailed and creative a lot of painstaking work Ed
  13. that is one great job, took a lot of planning and some good woodworking skills, very impressive 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.
