  1. Silly suggestion, perhaps, but why not buy your Gutermann thread in the colors you want? That's what I do and then there's no messy dyeing or fixing required.
  2. Yes, the basic framed hull can be, but you will need the museum sheer and profile that show the specific decorations for Pegasus.
  3. Plans published by SeaWatchBooks are researched and based on historical plans in the Royal Museums Greenwich (formerly the National Maritime Museum), but are not reproductions of those plans. The historical plans have copyright.
  4. Superb, Ed! Congratulations on completion of a magnificent model and a marathon rigging endeavour. This will be a very hard act to follow. Well done!
  5. The fibreglass cannon look very convincing. I hope no-one loads and fires one by mistake. Thanks for posting the progressive rigging photos.
  6. Great model to recall great stories with! Thanks for sharing this adventure with us, Andy. Swallows and Amazons for ever!
  7. News or 'Noose'??? Nuclear or 'Nucular'???
  8. Nice looking cleats! Dark brown thread would, in my opinion, look better than black on the model. (It is the color of Stockholm or pine tar used for marine work, not coal tar).
  9. Alfred is a bit earlier than Steel, is it not? That might account for variance in dimensions.
  10. Personally I prefer shoe dye. One needs to be very careful not to get it where it's not wanted! It does not raise the wood grain. I use two or three coats, then buff the wood with a paper towel to a nice dull sheen.

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.
