  1. If it will help, there's a couple articles here: http://modelshipworldforum.com/ship-model-plans-and-research.php In addition, you might look through the CAD area here: https://modelshipworld.com/forum/34-cad-and-3d-modellingdrafting-plans-with-software/
  2. If you've never used a lathe before, here's link for some tutorials. Not specific to what we do but they do give a pretty good overview and "how-to". https://littlemachineshop.com/info/menu_page.php?parent=itm11
  3. Tornados are nothing to mess with. Decades ago I lived in southern Ohio and we like 7 roll though within a two hour time frame. Serious damage from the Ohio River up past Dayton. Two years after the storms they found a boat (about a 20 footer if I recall rightly) stuck in a tree near Cleveland.
  4. Not going to like that, John. I feel for you and everyone over there as around here, we get it also during fire season, but not THAT bad.
  5. Nice plumbing work, Danny. The loco is really coming together wonderfully.
  6. What John said Peter. If your scrap box isn't full, you're doing it wrong... or so it seems.
  7. Google is your friend. Here's what have for 1800. If you search for French Navy Uniforms they have a "suggested" searches that appears... 1700, 1800, etc. And the link below is for both images and websites. https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1ZCEB_enUS832US832&ei=qiXvXYOjKtb6-gSFxaDoBA&q=french+navy+uniforms+1800&oq=french+navy+uniforms+&gs_l=psy-ab.1.3.0j0i22i30l4.45208.47889..56979...4.2..0.132.585.0j5......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j33i22i29i30.BSR_9rqe2qo
  8. AL? Being accurate? I'd rather bet my money on pigs being able to fly.
  9. I think you're right Scallywag. And as I pointed out earlier, the Bluejacket one is based on much earlier look than the MS. The MS version is based on the 1927 rebuild (I think that's the one or close to it). The MS is based on as she looked in the early 1800's....
  10. It's journey with out road signs or maps. Maybe when starting the rigging? Done painting? Everyone's 'mid-point' will different.

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.
