    Foul Weather Tarps

    OK, now I'm with you, Keith. I've certainly seen models with the awning spars modelled, but I don't think I've ever seen one with the awnings rigged, other than permanent awnings. Awnings were most often rigged in port in tropical waters to provide some protection from the sun It would certainly look nice, but you'd have to be careful that the awnings didn't hide too much deck detail on the model.

  11. Just catching up, Mate! You've got a half completed ship already. You've really been steaming ahead with this one. John

    Keith, what type of ship and what period are you asking about? Do you mean dodgers rigged to protect the crew on the poop? John

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.
