  1. to RFP: My GUESS is that if the wheel well confined the splash, some of it would be directed against the turn of the paddle, using energy for nothing. Just my guess, but try to picture the water splashing against the top, then back-splashing to the wrong direction. by letting the water splash go higher, it would more likely drip straight downand not impede progress.

  2. Hi Mort, Our kit represents the Constitution as she was in 1812-1815. Nic
  3. Tough to remember exactly, but I think I covered the wells all the way down.
  4. Here's a couple of shots of what's already installed on the model. Bow view: And the stern as well:
  5. Here's both deck-houses. Just a little more work, and they can be glued on.
  6. After a break of a week, more progress. Railings installed, and putty on the seams where the sections join.
  7. It is available for sale. K1107, $599. Having trouble getting on the website, but you can call in an order.
  8. John and I both belong to the CT Marine Model Society. His choice of the name James Wiser for the boathouse is a tribute to Jim, who was a club member and fantastic modeler. John named the boathouse is his honor after his passing. Also, the CMMS gives out an annual Jim Wiser award for excellence in modeling.
  9. From what I can see of the plans, they look like ours for sure. Jerry, I'm adding you to the list of "10% off your next BlueJacket kit" when you finish. Nic

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.
