  1. Hello, right now I'm halfway through a Revell Mayflower 1/83 build, and I was wondering what to do next. I had heard about RC Sailing before, but only competition grade stuff, models desingned to be fast and maneuverable, and a few weeks ago I learned about historical RC sailing, and then found amazing builds here in the forum by yancovitch, GeraldTodd and others. So the bug bit me. I decided to try it out by building a simple model(without worrying about detail or historical precision). As I had some time playing with RC Planes I already had a Radio Controller, some small servos and a battery charger, so I bought online new batteries, and most importantly the Sail Servo, the winch tipe. Upon considering what ship to build I was looking for a 2 mast Schooner or Brig. A few months ago I was studying 3d Modelling and went around the web downloading low resolution plans and hull lines for many ships so I could exercise. Because of that I had around 40 of those hull plans that show up on google images on a folder. This one got my atention: I tryed to find what ship she is online without much sucess, I would guess a British brig from the napoleonic period. Anyway, that didn't stop me, I've decided to model it in rufly 1/50 scale. I'll probably make it civillian by removing the cannons and portholes so I have less detailing to make she look ok! First step was drawing the actual parts as all I have are the general lines! I did it on Sketchup because this way I was able to draw the structure inside for battery, receiver and servos, and all the pieces and bulkheads needed for the hull. The next image shows how I plan to distribute the electronics. Of course, with the real hull I'll need to test whats the optimal positions of all parts for best ballancing. I'm still not shure but I'll probably build the ship with depron, a kind of light stirdy foam we use for planes, because its cheap, and easy to work with, as i'm living in a small apartment I cant actually cut wood here. My plan is to build the structure with reinforced depron, "plank" it with depron, folowed by a layer of wood strips and them some kind of resin or waterproof veneer. Masts and rigging I plan on standard material, I only wonder about whats the best kind of tissue for the sails that I can find here in Brazil! Thank you very much! Let's see if anyone can identify my mistery ship! hahaha
  2. Greetings, I have come across a very interesting product that I am going to use for a project at the Modeller's Workshop. This product, Renshape, a high-density foam, is excellent for scratch-building parts and making molds. However, it comes in large sections and is quite expensive. I am considering buying some of this stuff and cutting it into small pieces so model-builders can use it. Please let me know if you are interested. If there is enough interest, I will start selling the stuff on my website, in small pieces. Best Regards, Rick Shousha Modeller's Workshop Montreal

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.
