  1. It's been a while, been pretty sick. Well, I worked on those anchors. Filled in the holes and gaps with CA glue and filings from the thicker anchor. Primed them for painting. Made the iron rings and served them. Painted them with flat black enamel. I just couldn't use the metal stocks. Made them out of wood.. Made the iron bands from the black pinstripe tape provided in the kit. They seemed to turn out pretty good. Shaping the bouys now. Will make them out of wood. Jesse
  2. Thanks Joe, I'll be following along with yours. I still need to finish the anchors and flag on mine but almost done with it. Jesse
  3. This might sound stupid or maybe it is just the brain fog caused by illness but is joining the NRG a higher level of donating to MSW (as far as keeping the site up and going) or are they 2 separate things as far as financial support is concerned? Jesse
  4. Yes, life is getting in the way a lot recently, keeping me from the bench. I am working on the anchors now. Just got a new phone that takes much better pictures, just have to learn how to use it. My brain is not up to speed with all this new technology and the brain damage from the Lyme doesn't help either. Hope to get some pictures up soon. Jesse
  5. Very nice! She was one of my favorites of the models I have built. I love the wy she looks the shape of her hull and the history behind her development. You have a fine representation of her! Jesse
  6. Glad you have healed enough to be able to be back at it Rich. That seems like a really cool Dr. Did anyone figure out what made the can explode like that? Jesse
  7. Wow Dave, I love your attention to fine detail. It sort of boggles my mind! You do some really good research. Jesse
  8. I just found this build log. I have always loved the CSS Alabama and have dreamed of building it some day. I will be following along with this! Jesse
  9. Are those the anchors supplied with the kit? Mine are so badly cast I'm not sure I can even use them. Jesse
  10. Got out the anchors supplied with the kit. They are very pitted, not the same thickness and have spots of missing metal, and this is after some burnishing to see if it was possible to use them. There is no way O can use these.
  11. Thanks guys. Well, it seems all I needed to do was complain about the phone and then it starts working. Added the Spritsail. Rigged the Jib Guys, Spritsail Lifts and Spritsail Braces.
  12. Thanks everyone! I'm trying post another update but my outdated phone is having a lot of trouble sending pictures. I'll keep trying. Jesse

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.
