Rules for posting and joining the Medway Longboat group project

Recommended Posts

Nope.....once they are listed you can order.   I cant take pre-orders.   That just ends with somebody being mad at me.  Its a first come first serve thing.  Trust me .....I have gotten an ear-full, LOL.

Ok guys....another ten kits are ready to order.  I will be getting another batch of wood on Thursday too so I will start immediately on another batch of ten.

 

I should also have more rigging packages ready in a few days but I fear if you wait that long this batch will be sold out.   So get em while you can.

Oh man, I missed the boat on this batch too, already gone.  Maybe my timing will be better in the next batch round...

 

 

Glad this has been such a success.

For those who have been waiting...I have posted ten more longboat kits in stock and ready for immediate shipment.

 

The masting and rigging kits will soon follow in just a few days if everything works out.

Chuck, are kits still available? While I wait for a wood source for my Triton cross I was thinking of this one.

Not yet,  When i make another batch i will announce.  I just posted more rigging packages though.  And i am making more of those too because they sold out in about an hour yesterday.

 

 

The group will always remain open and its just a matter of teying to keep up with the demand.

I was just asked where the final chapter of this project was.....sorry guys.   I have had this completed for months now and actually thought I posted it.   I apologize.  Anyway...I have now added it to the download area.   Sorry for the delay.  I cant believe I didnt upload it.  :default_wallbash:

I was just checking everyones progress.  I noticed there are a bunch of guys who started logs but havent started building yet.  Hows it going with those?   I checked to see if they were indeed shipped out and they were.   I am just trying to keep the momentum going on this build.   I look forward to seeing some of you guys start your models.  If anyone has any questions please let me know.  :)

 

I am waiting on yet another batch of milled cedar but hope to have more kits available in a couple of weeks.  Its never too late to join the group if you are interested.  While you wait, check out the other logs and be sure to encourage those already building the model.

 

Thanks

Chuck

Mine was started, but then life has gotten in the way and I haven't done anything in the model room for months.  Hope to get back in there soon, but no promises.  The start of the longboat was very good though, as seen in my now dormant log.

OK...been drooling over the images on the Syren website....been reading all the build logs.....cleared my bench and, at long last, am ready to start....joined this website yesterday....went to The Syren website to order...Sold Out. What a let down after all that expectation...it reminds me of dating in high school.

 

Any idea when we can expect more kits, Chuck??

 

Cheers from NYC,

I am about half way there with more kits.   Getting another wood order late next week because I wasnt happy with the quality of the 1/32" sheets of cedar I have left.   There were to many imperfections/graininess for my tastes.  Maybe another week to 10 days.  We dont churn these out in a sweatshop so they take more time to produce.   Quality control and the best materials are super important to me.

Thanks for the quick response, Chuck. That time frame suits me well. Allow me to say that your desire for the best materials speaks volumes, as does the craftsmanship exhibited in the photos on your website. I design and make furniture on commission and, like you, I'm a one man shop.  If it's not as good as I can make it, it doesn't leave here. We're on the same page.

 

Cheers from NYC,

Michael

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.
