  1. Just got to finish sanding the white Oak panels on the backside something I wish I would of though of earlier and used WO for the panels on the sides? I do not like to really stain wood like to use the natural colors for differentiation like the hunt board I finished last year.Anyways this is just oils applied a product imported from Vicksburg to the coast I p/u at my local saw mill I luv it works great let dry good 2/4 weeks and I will put a semi-clear water base over it
  2. I continue with the display cabinet almost finished the four sides are now glued together.The piece you see for the floor is just a test piece to see if the underlying ledges were correct.The expensive part is about to show itself the plexiglass! it was almost a $100 for the two pieces for the gun cabinet though thicker.The doors have been made and the reliefs on the doors and cabinet have been done for the hinges. Mark:Russ says hello he may look you up FB
  3. I like this one alot Greg but then it could be those Italian lines and curves like Sophia Loren. Kevin
  4. Guys I appreciate all the looks and interest but this build will be slowed not for lack of interest on my part but Life says other things first!I have officially run out of storage room I started a box some time back and I need to build another also for the office/model room it measures 48"LX22"D"X34"H plus I have a table restoration gig for fella graying included.So when I get an hour or two to work on the 86 I will but the F-16 gots to come first. Kevin
  5. Yes Sir the Wife fried some up tonight it was good but I have been busy in the shop building a box if I eat to much I slow down.I started this box some time ago but with all the model building of late I have officially run out of room plus I have to redo a table with graying included a paying gig.I am figuring five shelves including the base 6" apart in the pic none of the four sides has been glued yet.So between fishing and this the F-86 will be a slow build. Kevin
  6. I was at the bait shop @ 5:15am in the water by 5:50am wade fishing with 10lb test and a Zebco 404 the KastKing is for dry land not to be water logged.I would say that for one hour they were hitting pretty good and had to throw two back to small have to say it was fun morning.The biggest was the first @ 18.5" ,two 16",15.5" and the last was 17".I also caught two Lady fish not good eating but they are fast and fight you think you hit a miniature Tarpon they go airborne.I have to say wade fishing is my element fish are all around you jumping and feeding it's very interactive and a nice rosey sunrise.
  7. I am sorry to hear this but it seems a blessing the struggle was not to long RIP Dan
  8. Thks OC out of all the years I have been building never thought to use bluetack that way for exhaust. Kevin
  9. Yes it will EG and I think I will use some of the Gloss Grey by Alclad over the Gloss Black of some panels and see the effect as discussed earlier in your thread I think Airframe Silver it's kinda bright.

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.
