  1. Daniel, great job! I enjoy your precious work and look forward to your next progress. ;)
  2. Hi, There isn't easy answer. Your question is too wide. Will you use CNC only for 2D cutting or do you need 2.5D or 3D tool or do you want to use also rotary axis (4 axis)? This is important question because this influences CAD and CAM software too. 😉 I use Fusion 360 and 4 axis CNC Machine. But you can use only any 2D CAD and CamBam for example. I used SketchUp too with CAM plugin. There Is many possibilities and there is also question how much you can pay for it. 😎
  3. Great job! I like it and enjoy for every new photos from your building. Let me know. I see your machine. What is it? Is it a drill or cnc or milling machine?
  4. Great job! I have the book Plank-On-Frame Models. And several times I am thinking about this ship too. So, I am looking forward to your progress!
  5. Thanks for answer. I have built a boat from ABS several years ago (not 3D print) and I did the paint. ;o) Have you thought about ABS or ASA? I ask because I also think about 3D printed boat and I am looking for some answers what is experience with different materials.
  6. It's interesting. I have a question. I suppost by your notes you use for print PLA filament. I red at different forums and web articles that PLA isn't well resist at UV and high teperatures. How you protect your ship before UV? Do you have any tip or experiencies?
  7. It's really interesting follow your thead. I enjoy to next photos! Keep it up! Great job!
  8. Me too. And by the list it looks great but possibility to look inside is more helpful.
  9. U are right. But I have only these pages. I hope somebody has tjis book or similar and can help.
  10. I have found these images on the net. But I don't know from which book they are. I search resources for these holland boats. Can anybody help me, please?

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.
