    Carrianne model 11 Stb Bow

    She looks 1:1. Beautiful!!
  3. Hi Bindy, A wonderful result on your first build, she looks great!! Much better than mine, you have to look at my first for about 15 seconds before realizing it's a ship! Carry on with the skill, experience, and enthusiasm you've developed on "Il Leudo" and we'll see a real "Surprise!" All the best, Michael
  4. Administrators and Moderators; All too often [you] operate behind the scenes, and perform crucial, necessary operations that many of us take for granted. The time has come for a collective THANK YOU! to Chuck and the 'team' for broadening our horizons, and expanding our world yet again!!! Thanks Everyone! Michael

    An introduction

    Pete, Welcome aboard from another MSW "newbie"! Knowledge abounds here, jump in and enjoy the "swim"!. As for my 2 cents, if you treat each item or assembly of your ship as it's own separate kit, the whole experience of the build will be much less overwhelming. Take a breath, sit back, and ENJOY! Michael
  6. Hi Bindy, Depending on the diameter of each piece, you may want to consider using a "pin". Center drill both the mast top and "bulb", then join them with a short length of dowel or even a piece of a common straight pin. Just a thought but, if you choose this method, PLEASE be cautious! Michael

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.
