    Restarting an old hobby

    Welcome to MSW and good luck with the Cutty Sark
  3. I have finished planking the deck. This work took a while. To prepare each plank separately before gluing on the model, takes more time. The advantage is that no more sanding has to be done on the model. So there will be no dust on the model itself. The base for the whip staff has also been made. It has not become a deck with a nice equal planking scheme. So, my apologies to everyone who does not like this. Whip staff deck Thanks for following
  4. Very nicely done and beautifully made I will follow this build.

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.
