  1. High Zappto I am using 2 jigs I have made One For The Vanguard the other for the Granado, they are constructed using box section aluminium obtained from B & Q here in the uk, its sold in meter lengths, the finger grips are made from 1/4" steel strip with nylon facings, the units are very good at keeping the keel straight during frame assemble and first planking, the Granado frame had a very slight curve after removal from the box, and due to the jig's alloy back bone this has now been corrected. the design enables you to complete the first planning nearly down to the keel before removal required. I have included a few photos, hope this may be of help. Mike

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.
