  1. This might seem blasphemous, I have had good results with MDF for bulkheads. With care, it can be faired as easily as plywood. It is often much straighter and less prone to warping than traditional ply.
  2. Immensely impressive. I've learned so much from this thread. I can't wait to see what's next for you.
  3. That looks just incredible, Chuck! Re: your planking tutorial, I think you gave me PTSD. The thinnest planks on my terror model were 1/16, and some at the wales were over 8 scale inches (close to 11/32)! Never again.
  4. Barry, thank you so much. I'm happy to know someone with your interests will be building the kit. More to come here soon; my model is on display, but I have some backlog of work to post, and some new fittings I'll be working on over the coming year.
  5. Thanks for the wonderful review. While I wasn’t involved with the design of the kit, it is based on my original research and plans from my ongoing Terror build: Those interested in the ship may want to check it out. Also, Ages of Sail has a pretty fantastic starter package on sale now with the kit, which includes a complete set of tools, including a plank bender, for less than $300, if I recall. Thanks for again for the review!
  6. Thanks for the explanation Chuck. It's a great idea for a kit; planking is so daunting and mysterious for newcomers. Can't wait to watch this develop.
  7. Wow excellent! I’m looking forward to seeing how you create the pre-spiled planks! I’ve seen them in some Chinese and Russian kits and I can’t wait to see the method used to create them. You are a kit/part building machine, Chuck. And with all your other work and leadership for the hobby too numerous to list...you are an inspiration, indeed!
  8. Thanks for the comment! There may be be a second season (it hasn’t been announced yet), but this was always meant to be an anthology series. So, if they get a second season it won’t be about the Franklin Expedition, unfortunately. It will be a completely different story.
  9. Ooooh. I'm pulling up a chair for this. I'll be needing nine boats for my Terror build, so I hope to learn lots from you! Great start so far. I see the Death Star is still "fully operational"!

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.
