  1. As a tool nut I'm always checking out various sites. In my other life I built guitars and the best online site for luthier tools is Stewart-MacDonald (stewmac.com). I've been using sewing needles glued in a dowel rod to apply ca glue. On the Stewmac site I found "Glue Loppers". I've used only one of the smaller size for about a month cleaning it with a lit match when needed. In my opinion they're great. They may be better than needles because they are very thin. They cost about $14 for 12. A bit pricey but I'm hooked...Moab

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.
