The ship that I am just starting to work on will require 1/8" x 1/2" strips for the plating but the kit came with 1/4" copper tape. Instead of trying to evenly split the 1/4" tape I want to get either 1/8" or 1/2" tape and then I will make a jig to cut the plates. All that I have found online is designed for EMI shielding, will this work ok for the ship plating? Will the adhesive stick to a primed or painted wooden hull?

I use copper tape at work for electronics and at home for ship building. Stained glass suppliers are your best bet. If you have a local shop I would bet they have 1/8", but be aware they come with different colors of adhesive on the back. I think it comes in black, silver and clear. You want clear for hull plating.

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.
