New Plan Set from the NRG 03/17/2018
The NRG has a new set of plans available for purchase with a free 200+ page full-color monograph . Check the NAUTICAL RESEARCH GUILD NEWS forum below for details. This plan set is developed for the first time scratch builder with limited tools and experience. All materials are standard strip stock available from hobby wood suppliers. However, it is also a great project for the more experienced builder looking for a smaller project to take a break from the bigger builds. Remember MSW Members who provide us their real name are considered members for the discounted price. An email or call to the office before you order with your real name and MSW user name before you order is needed for the discount code.

I intended that this 20" LOA would represent a 30' boat. The model would be RC. The construction is the lift method with the inside carefully hollowed out. I followed no plan and carved what suited my eye. After getting the RC components installed and functioning I found the model even without the sails too "tender" and floating well below her "lines. A complete failure from the intended purpose. However it makes a nice shelf model and keeps the "Admiral " happy.
