  1. Ahoy. Newbie here, just starting out in model ship building. I ordered my first kit the other day and wouldn't you know, it's been delayed by a hurricane' Hm. Taking advantage of the time delay to outfit my commandeered dining room table as a workstation. From what I see around the forums, there's plenty of good advice and excellent build log photos to guide me. I see you folks are a dedicated fleet of generous artisans. I'm starting this build log to harvest a good catch of tips and critiques. Well, if my kit and FedEx both survive Hurricane Arthur I'll be back. And if you're reading this, you probably built a skipjack or you're working on one. Let me know who you are so I can follow you & plunder all your advice - AAARGH! Thank you, Rick
  2. This is my first build, I haven't been able to work on it much as of late due to grad school taking up all my time. But I am going to post pictures and some info. Hopefully I'll be able to get a little work on it done here and there, I know I will have many many questions as I progress along. The typical first picture. Getting started with the build. The shape is coming together. Adding the planks. Lots of sanding happened here. First look of the inside. And we are up to date. If anyone sees anything that I might have missed or needs fixing, please don't hesitate to let me know. This is after all my fist build ever. I am always open to criticism and suggestions. I see that I am going to have to do some soldering, I have never done this, and I don't have any of the tools. What do I need to get to do a good job and make my life as easy as possible. -joshukr-

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.
