    Nave Egizia

    I'm building the Nave Egizia and am up to the point of rigging it now. There seems to be no instructions at all for building the Hogging line other than using .75mm line. Did you find the proper way to do it or just wing it? Thanks! Bruce
  2. I used to live on the Bayou in Louisiana and have some fond memories of paddling along with one hand while casting my fly rod. Scratch built mostly from memory and photos. 18" OAL. I've built a few small boats (real ones) and worked as a yacht mechanic in the Keys while living on my sailboat. I've built a few model boats now and received a Christmas gift of the Cutter Pen Duick. That's in progress now and if I can figure out this site I'll post build photos.

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.
