  2. Great start! Looking forward to seeing the boat come together.

    Great build. I really like you design for stanchions.
  7. I remember Frank. He was quite character, and quite a ship modeler. You won't need much in the way of tools to start. Get an exacto knife, a good straight edge, a small bottle of yellow wood glue (aliphatic resin), make sanding sticks or buy emery boards from the nail store, a decent scale, small flat jaw pliers, jeweler's saw and blades, single edge razor blades, some cheapo clamps, a decent pencil (.5mm pentel), and then go from there.

    Strip Vise Construction

    Built this to taper planks about 15 years ago. 3/4 X 1/8 hardware store aluminum angle. about 18" long. It works for me
  9. Dave, The usual first rate work we've come to enjoy! Thanks for the update. John
  10. My only comment is: Throw that bottle of craft bond away and get a bottle of Titebond wood glue. After that, go have yourself a great time building this kit!

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.
