  1. Hi All, I am now two years into the US Brig Eagle using the Gene Bodnar practicum. I consider Gene to be one of the greats in the hobby today and his practicum leaves no regrets. I like to build a couple of ships in tandem so I dont get bored. Having just finished a POB Kitbashed Rattlesnake, I decided to start the HMS Naiad using Ed Tosti's Monograph (the log is posted on this site) and will continue with the US Brig Eagle. I toy with just stopping in the admiralty sytle, but since I bought a Byrnes rope walk this year, I had better use it. Otherwise I will be keel hauled by order of my Admiral... The first half of my log is on Model Ship Builder. I will share some photos below of how she sits today and moving forward, will now post on both sites. If you are interested in this build, I fully recommend it and am happy to consult for anyone who wants that. The practicum, which is FREE, takes you through lofting and plan design, all the way to the finished product. On my build, everything is from scratch, with the exception of the long guns. Some day, I will get into casting, but for now I am focusing on the hull structure. The build is based on research done by Kevin Crisma from Texa A&M University and his Doctoral disseratation is available free frmo the website. http://nautarch.tamu.edu/anth/abstracts/crisma.htm I'm going back a couple of years here... This is an example of the lofted frame. Now, I do all my frame lofting with DeltaCAD. One of the things that makes this a great first scratch build is the simple curvature of the frames. There is little tumble home and the frames are fairly thick for this lake warship. Here she sits with ceiling planks installed. I am leaving the ship in a skeletal form with only a suggestion of planking and other structural supports. The entire hull is of boxwood from D'Lumberyard. Capsized with the hull almost fully faired. Hours and hours of sanding and polishing... Fast forward to today! Next up is the bowsprit and rigging. I will go into more detail. If you want to see the full painful log in excrutiating detail, it is on MSB. More to come. Thanks, Gary

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.
