  1. I use chemical blackening for much of the brasswork. The product is Birchwood Casey Brass Black Metal Finish which I bought from a local gun shop.

  2. Your patience is amazing. Good job. Have you tried a blackening agent on the brass? It darkens the metal and will not chip Jerry
  3. Sorry, I was just responding to Captain 71's request for info Jerry
  4. I found a great nailing tool at a model train supplier. I think Micro Mark and Model Expo may have them also. Cheers, Jerry
  5. The framing looks good. Still have all your fingers? Cheers, Jerry
  6. Thanks for the tips, guys. Jerry
  7. Sweet planking and sanding job. Can't wait for more pix. Jerry
  8. I really appreciate the input concerning Mamoli kits. I have my eye on the Surprise, having listened to most of Aurbry's adventures on talking books, and being able to visualize the ship through those stories. I have loved the old sailing ships since I was a kid, watching Errol Flynn and his swash bucklers. I am working my way through the Dapper Tom, and probably have another 6 months of rigging to complete. All of my prior ships have been modern warships such as Tamiya's Fletcher Class destroyer and USS Missouri. ttyl, Jerry

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.
