  12. This may vary depending on which country was the ship and whether they were wartime or peace.And surely it was used a light color for lower decks.
  13. Ageing Decks

    Another technique is to use white glue mixed with cigarette ashes and water...no only serves for the caulking also to give an antique look to the wood.

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.
