  1. Thank you for the re-build, quite an interesting ship as read in Marquats book.
  2. The carvings will make a nice addition to the quality and beauty of the model. Great start.
  3. Sweet, look forward to rest of build. I have the AoS book and will follow. I like the way you have set up for the stern framing
  4. Yeah a great starter kit for newbies and fun kit for those of us winding down. Can't wait for the finished product
  5. Still hanging! Build is still on my work bench, along with several others. I always thought that when you retired you had a lot more free time ...... well not true. Its really less time.. for one you move slower and more people want your time!
  6. Hate to keep saying this but I am still here and have about rapped up my other projects ( not ship building) and am looking forward to getting back to my hobbies!
  7. Billings still sells the fittings kit! about $125

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.
