  1. 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.

    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
  3. Dave, The usual first rate work we've come to enjoy! Thanks for the update. John
  4. 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!
  5. Truly impressive. A joy to watch your work.
  6. Your work is very impressive!
  7. You seem to be having a lot of fun, keep up the good work! John
  8. This is the type of craftsmanship that keeps me coming back....

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.
