  1. As a maturing fart , reacting is a better way sometimes . Posts about problems with ships , illness with self or others, pets......etc .may not be likable but certainly worth responding to as one sees fit. regards Digby
  2. Rob, My kit came with timber for single planking which looks ok under a few thin layers of paint. For a clear finish better timber could be bought for a second layer. regards Digby
  3. RFP, nice work on the Constitution, the Lucia should be a breeze but it's construction is single plank not double. Slow and steady is the way to go. regards Digby
  4. Just checked my Santa Lucia (shed name 'Santa Rosa'). Looks nice next to my bench. In my opinion a nice kit , if a painted hull and workman like finish appeals. Good scale for 'rugged stitching' on the sails' , hull timbers were hard to work,but thick enough to sand and fill for a painted, not a clear, finish. Deck camber makes it unusual but pleasing when finished.Well worth a go. regards Digby

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
