  1. I am building the WLB and can not figure out how to carve the keelson.  I need to see a cross section to understand how the rabbit is cut.  Right now some of the frames come to the top of the keelson.  If I cut a rabbit it would be below the frames.  What do you think I am not understanding?  Any comments are welcome.  Your WLB is really nice.

  2. Thanks so much for the nice notes Popeye and Lawrence and also for the terrific rigging tip Lawrence - much appreciated ! & thanks for the Likes ! Progress being made on the Pushboat - next up will be the propeller & shaft, rudder and engine cover and some more painting. -thanks for looking.

  8. Thank you so much for the very nice notes Lawrence and Popeye ! It's great to have The Willie L.Bennett back on the workshop bench. For the first time - a view of the overall Height ! The Mast, temporarily placed, was built-up at the base to get the octagon shape -and then Masthead Band added to top . Added the Main Sheet Horse using 1/16" rod which was flattened at ends for small holes so that it may be "bolted" to transom ( eyebolt wire ) . 3/64" rod used for brace across. Blackened afterwards. The Jib Traveler added to the Bow using supports at each end. Blackened. Next, in addition to some more work on the mast, will be starting on the boom... or, even some repair work on the Rudder as its getting a little beat-up ( :vD ). Thanks for the Likes & thanks for looking -

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.
