  1. I just got a used 1/4=1 MS Katy of Norfolk schooner off of ebay the other day and I need some advice on it. The kit is MISSING the following items: rings for the sails, the boom/gaff yokes, parrel beads, an anchor the belaying pins they say should be in the kit, the rudder, rudder hinge, rudder bar, keel stem and stern post instructions that make a modicum of sense. (what's in included is rubbish), blocks and deadeyes that are not 1/8" in size, mastcaps. What IS in the kit: hull (partly carved), rigging, a packed of itty bitty deadeyes, a packet of really tiny nails, a packet of blocks that a spider couldn't fit a web through the hole, wood for the masts, bowsprit, blocks to carve for the hatch/cabin, two pieces of wood I am guessing I am suppose to make the sternpost, rudder bar and keel stem from, really useless instructions, a packet of itsy bitsy teeny weenie eye pins. I will use the instructions to make sail templates and then make them from silkspan So what i need is advice on where to buy the blocks (in bulk), deadeyes (in bulk), anchor, bit heads or belaying pins (in bulk), mast caps (I will probably make these). The other thing is SIZE of the items needed. Most everything is in MM out there and I don't know what MM is close to scale for 1/4 inch = 1 foot. thanks, Keith BUILDS : AL Scottish Maid (complete) AL Virginia Schooner (under construction)
  2. Since last year I have been using and purchasing Valejo paint from my local hobby store. I like the paint as it has a high pigment. Now the store has decided to go with a new brand by the name of Mr. Color This after many request from other shoppers. When searching the web I haven't been able to find any link to the manufacturer themselves. The store is to drop the Valejo line in favor of Mr Color, so my question is: Does anyone have any experience of this paint? Does it hold the quality of Valejo?
  3. Got my AVS today from the Halloween Sale with complimentary paints (except the paints didn't arrive). - Maybe been held up in customs or something. I'm not sure if MS would of placed them in the box or not, but the box had clearly been tampered with when I opened the big package. Here is another one of my babies, singing to me. Now the dilemma to start one or both!
  4. I've just ordered the Syren MS paint kit. I was wondering if these were the paints others have used in their Syren, or did they go with other brands? I took the easy option and got all the colours in one pack, but am wondering if I've compromised on quality. Cheers Rowan

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.
