    Do you have animals to 'help' you build?

    Felix First he learns military modeling. Building boats is for later (I hope)
  3. Indeed, the answer to my comment is on page 8. I started following your build a little too late.

    greetings patrick
  6. Just an idea, I built this model a long time ago. Out of the box. Without extra detail (no documentation, no internet, and with little experience). what I remember well is that I had problems with the two hull halves to fit well together. Is it not better to put the hull halves together first and then to paint afterwards? And also to see if your newly created parts fit well on the hull. Greetings Patrick

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.
