Jim & Jesse,

Yes Sapele is a beautiful wood, but hard as steel. I built my whole US Constitution out of it and it was very difficult. It will good for pinrails though

I marked the top of the pinrails so they will all be on the same plain. I've found in the past when I'm trying to glue things on the same plain "by eye" somehow they never line up.

Rich - I'd be happy to help you.  I have some woods that I think you'd like, and we could mill them to whatever size you need.  Come on down!

Thanks, Frank. After the holidays I probably will come down. 

Merry Christmas! :piratebo5:

Rich,

Looking good. yea lining things up by eye when a couple of thousands shows up is....fun. Your way is working. The one time I have made, steps and ladders I used a finer grain wood. I had some scrap Manzonia that worked well. Had a nice contrast to the Sapele also.

My prayers for you Rich. I struggle with Chronic Lyme and I know what you mean. Got another Dr. appointment this afternoon. There is something therapeutic about getting back to the work bench.

Hello, Rich! I recently joined MSW and have been readying through your log these past couple of days. I finally caught up on it all and I feel like I've been learning a lot just by watching your progress.

 

I'm sorry to hear about the big c. I'll be praying for you and yours. It's rough on everyone involved. :(

 

I look forward to seeing more on your build!

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.
