    Welcome, Randy! I am 51, and also New to the hobby! I also am building the HMS Sultana. I’m sure you know there is a great practicum with pictures by Chuck Passaro on this kit. I hope you take the opportunity to read it before jumping in the the bulkhead work. I am following this as the main guide for achieving my first completion but it can be challenging. Please see see my log on my current (slow...) build of my Sultana! I will look forward to your build! Please take time to start a log as the folks here have some awesome experience to share. I hope you enjoy the hobby! Cheers Pat

    Also read my log.....you'll see what a real beginner looks like when jumping in! LOL Enjoy the ride, frustration, success, and minor victories that come with building. If you are a model furniture maker, you probably already have a very good eye and skillset for the wood ship arena. Unlike myself....but it is fun to learn. Lot's of folks here with oodles of experience.

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.
