NRG MODELERS WORKSHOP

SATURDAY, AUGUST 21

The Ship Modeler's Ten Step Program or How to Transform Your Kit Model from Out of the Box to Out of this World

 

You have built a few ship models “out of the box” but you are considering taking the next step towards kit-bashing.  The idea is exciting, but you have no idea where to start.  This presentation takes you through the process of transforming your kit build into a one-of-a-kind, historically correct ship model.  From research to technique to bringing your model to life, NRG Chairman Toni Levine will show you how to make your model stand out from the crowd. 

To illustrate the Ten Steps, the presentation concludes with do’s and don’ts using her first kit model, Mantua’s Peregrine Galley, as a teaching aid.

About the Presenter

Toni Levine has been a Director of the Nautical Research Guild since 2013 and was elected Chairman this year.  She has been a moderator on Model Ship World since 2017.  She is a retired physician. 

Toni has been building models since she was a child, starting with a Monogram Hellcat that had been intended for her brother.  Her first ship model was a Scientific Cutty Sark, built in high school; a model she still has.  After her education was completed, Toni resumed model building, starting with plank on bulkhead kits and progressing to plank on frame scratch builds.

Her most recent completed model is Atalanta, a British sloop of 1775 which was constructed following David Antscherl’s The Fully Framed Model.  This model won several prizes at the 2019 Midwestern Model Ships and Boats Contest, including Gold Award, Modeler’s Choice and People’s Choice.

Most recently, she developed a half hull kit to instruct novice and intermediate modelers how to correctly plank a hull and a monograph detailing how to build a capstan for intermediate and advanced modelers. Both projects are available through the Guild store.

Kurt,

 

Not sure what you mean when you say "can typically view...."

 

Will this workshop be recorded? If so, do we need to register first in order to be able to view the recording? And will you post info on how to access the recording after the event? Those of us challenged by substantially different time zones would appreciate the opportunity to see the workshop without having to be up in the middle of the night.....

 

Don't mean to sound narky, but the info provided above is a little vague.

It will be recorded.  It will be on the member only area of the web site for members to view.  It is best to register so you get the first opportunity to view the video - at your leisure.  It will be available to all members -but not always right away - we are still working our details.  But those registered will be emailed a link within a few days of the event.

For those non-members who signed up they will be provided with a link to the video also  for a limited time.

Thanks for confirming the recording Kurt. If space is limited for the live event, won’t registering take up some of those spaces unnecessarily if we only plan to view the recording? An announcement here when the recording is available to members would surely suffice?

 

Sorry to be a PITA - just looking for the best outcome for all.

There are plenty of seats available.  Please register because those who are registered will be in the first group to get access.  All members will, but not at the same time as those who registered.

Once we pass 100 which was real early we paid the month fee for extra seats - we will never fill all those seats - the fee is very reasonable so it's not a burden.

There are 251 registered and we have almost that many seats still available.

We concluded the workshop today and had 172 in attendance.  Had a Q&A session after the talk concluded and everybody had the opportunity to ask questions.

Many who registered did not show up but will be able to view the recording in the near future.  We will send an email to NRG members to view it on the members side of the website.  Those few non-members who signed up will get an email also.  It isn't going to be posted immediately but within a short time.

Thanks for being there.

Toni: Thanks for holding the workshop! Good attendance and a lot of helpful information. Appreciate you taking the time in putting it together...  Conducting a ZOOM presentation is not the most fun experience but you certainly made it look easy! 🙂 

 

Thanks again
