    Hi Paul, I am about to do the masting on the same model (Looks like the same anyhoo, did yours come in 'Bit-Parts' over two years?) if so then I think your model has confirmed something I have long suspected (and mentioned here on MSW) that the model used in the instruction photos is at least two if not three different models, as yours is slightly different to mine in places. I have only just come downstairs from doing the Ships-Bell where I ignored the instruction photos completely and made a sort of 'Gallows' affair, and here you have done the same thing totally independently By The Way, I have been at mine on and off for almost 13 years (admittedly with a huge gap in the middle due to family issues) but have gotten my head down this last few weeks and hope to have it finished in a month or so. Well done for posting your photos and sorry for being a bit long winded here. Eamonn

    Hi There, Wonderful model, my dad had a 20 foot replica built on the lines of the Bounty launch in Cork, Ireland back in the early 80's, she was rigged very similar to your model but with a much shorter jib-boom, your boat is a wonderful reminder of that 20 footer. Great work.. Eamonn

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.
