  1. This better than Saturday night re-runs Thanks Ed Dale
  2. Thanks John That does make a little more sense. I think I now have it. It was not the cut of her build the determinded her Identity but the way she was rigged. Again Thanks, Stag really does look the part. Dale
  3. Hi John, Great build. I have been one of those who watch from outside of the ring. I have question as to the Stag. She was a Cutter by build and appears to have a clinkered hull. In my observations Sloops are similar in nature and build to a cutter. a difference I am seeing is the difference between the two the texture of the hull Cutter being a clinker planked and sloop being smooth planked. Is this a fair observation and does it hold true? Dale

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.
