  1. Ocooch hardwoods

    Thanks for the quick replies everyone
  2. Ocooch hardwoods

    Has anyone heard of Ocooch hardwoods? http://www.ocoochhardwoods.com/ Their prices seem to be reasonable, and the reviews I've heard are very good.
  3. Poplar for modeling

    Thanks to all for being so helpful with my questions. Allanyed: I'm Robert, but everyone calls me Rob. Jack12477: I will check Lowes to see if they have milled maple. Roger Pellett: Does Menard's actually wrap their wood in plastic? ( I've never been to Menards)
  4. Poplar for modeling

    Roger Pellett: The "poplar" in my Home Depot is real yellow poplar, but I can't seem to find milled maple. What big box store do you go to ?
  5. Poplar for modeling

    Thanks guys, Soft maple may be a better choice, but poplar is already milled to 1/4 thickness at Home Depot and is quite cheap, while I would have to mill the maple myself, and I don't have the equipment. Btw I live on the east coast
  6. Poplar for modeling

    Hi, I noticed that poplar is quite cheap, so I was wondering if it could be used for framing on a pof model. Boxwood is really expensive, and messing up could cost a lot. Thanks
  7. black ash for ship modeling

    Thanks, Jaager, I will probably use the black ash for bulkheads on a pob model
  8. I recently came across some black ash on sale, and I was wondering if it would be suitable for model ship building. It will probably be used for framing components. Thank you

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.
