    Thanks, Pete! That's really kind. There's a fellow in our local ship club who uses cedar wood bases - very strong grain - and embeds the models in the dyed wood to give that very effect. This is inspired by that, and I'm glad it works to some extent. The inside scoop on the woods is that I completely fouled up the lower part of the model while carving. I ran it through the bandsaw to create a "waterline" of the mahogany, and then added the walnut and tried again.
  2. A take on the Friendship Sloop. Woods are Walnut, Mahogany, Cherry. Mounting Board is Maple.
  3. A MidWest kit for beginners - which I (sort of) survived.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
