  1. Just a quick update - lots of sanding/fairing and the installation of the gun ports. Much more to do but making progress and am really impressed with how well everything is fitting! Don
  2. Thanks, Bob, agreed. I’m constantly checking and getting a better feel for the process but I, too have been worried about taking off too much. I’m really enjoying your Pen Duick build, your deck looks really great! Don
  3. Thanks, Mike and Rusty, I appreciate it. OK, drugs and sticky back sandpaper it is! 😺Will also take a look at the soft sanders, thanks for the link. Don
  4. Thanks Mike and Rusty, I have been following both of your builds very closely and am deeply impressed and really appreciate your discussions. I’m several hours into the fairing process with a little bit of initial grinding using a Dremel tool but mostly sanding sticks and paper which is causing issues with my ancient hands. Do either of you use a sander like the Proxxon to help with this process or is Advil the answer? Thanks again, Don
  5. After several months collecting parts and tools and finishing other projects, I’ve started my Winchelsea. There are some truly stunning build logs here that I’ve been following closely, and I must admit that I’m a bit intimidated. Between these logs, Chucks tutorials, and members help and suggestions I’m pretty excited to get underway and give it a go. Anyway, off to the races............ Don
  6. Bob, It looks great! I’m really looking forward to watching your progress! Don
  7. Thanks, Ryland, and thanks for all the likes! I wish I lived close enough to Hampton Roads to meet with y’all - I think I’ve met some of your members at the Mariners Museum. There’s only a couple of other people who do this kind of stuff around Birmingham. Don
  8. Thank you Jean-Paul and Chuck, I really appreciate the kind words and it means a lot! Chuck, got the order I placed recently in just a couple of days after you shipped it - have been following your shipping challenges, but no problems here in the wilderness of northern Alabama. Will be starting a Winnie build log shortly. Thanks again, Don

  10. Have pretty much finished the Medway Longboat with the exception of some trimming and a bit of touch up painting. This has been a real learning experience overall and I’ve done several things for the first time, but with Chucks excellent tutorial and the many posts in this group, I think it’s been successful. A special thanks to BobG for his wonderful posts and encouragement - that helped a lot. Don

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.
