  1. I am new to this forum and I am working on my first two kits, Fair American and the HMS Bounty from Artesania-latina. The build logs on this website are all very helpful and I am looking forward to my retirement and building many models. Thanks to all of you who post their logs as they have been extremely helpful in shortening my learning curve. I am however curious. "Anatomy of a ship", (the Bounty), indicates that the top two decks were cambered and yet the second deck in the kit is not but no one has addressed this. Am I being too "anal"? As per the anatomy drawings I am going to attempt to construct the second deck with a camber unless someone can tell me that it was not cambered. I really enjoy this forum!

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.
